KEMET also offers a “fail-safe” fused solid tantalum chip capacitor. The built-in fuse element provides excellent protection from damaging short circuit conditions in applications where high fault currents exist. Protection from costly circuit damage due to reversed installation is offered with this device. Capacitance values range from 0.15 μF to 470.0 μF, in voltage ratings from 4 to 50. Standard capacitance tolerances include ±20% and ±10%. Tape and reeling per EIA 481-1 is standard.
