Orange Drop® capacitors made with film dielectric and metallized or foil electrodes are well known for their excellent performance in pulse DC and AC circuits. The Orange Drop® line consists of roughly 20 series, each with its unique design to cover diverse AC and DC applications ranging from filter caps in switch mode power supplies, to snubbers that protect IGBT's in high power inverters.
Offered in values from 0.22 nanofarads to 10 microfarads and voltages from 100 to 2000 Vdc, Orange Drop® capacitors are radial leaded types that mount to a printed circuit board. The term Orange Drop® capacitors was first coined in the 1960's by Sprague Capacitor Company, so aptly named for their bright orange epoxy conformal coating.
