1. The operating temperature limit depends on the capacitor.
1-1.Do not apply temperatures exceeding the upper operating temperature.
It is necessary to select a capacitor with a suitable rated temperature which will cover the operating
Also it is necessary to consider the temperature distribution in equipment and the seasonal temperature
1-2.Consider the self-heating of the capacitor
The surface temperature of the capacitor shall be the upper operating temperature or less when
including the self-heating factors.
2.Atmosphere surroundings (gaseous and liquid)
1. Restriction on the operating environment of capacitors.
1-1. The capacitor, when used in the above, unsuitable, operating environments may deteriorate
due to the corrosion of the terminations and the penetration of moisture into the capacitor.
1-2. The same phenomenon as the above may occur when the electrodes or terminals of the capacitor are
subject to moisture condensation.
1-3. The deterioration of characteristics and insulation resistance due to the oxidization or corrosion of
terminal electrodes may result in breakdown when the capacitor is exposed to corrosive or
volatile gases or solvents for long periods of time.
1. When using high dielectric constant type capacitors in AC or pulse circuits, the capacitor itself vibrates
at specific frequencies and noise may be generated.
Moreover, when the mechanical vibration or shock is added to capacitor, noise may occur.
