FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

metallized electrodes and polyethylene naphthalate dielectric for use in electronic equipment.

These capacitors have metallized connecting pads or soldering strips and are intended to be

mounted directly onto substrates for hybrid circuits or onto printed boards. These capacitors

may have "self-healing properties" depending on conditions of use. They are primarily

intended for applications where the AC component is small with respect to the rated voltage.

Capacitors for radio interference suppression are not included, but are covered by

IEC 60384-14.
1.2 Object

The object of this standard is to prescribe preferred ratings and characteristics and to select

from IEC 60384-1 (1999), the appropriate quality assessment procedures, tests and measur-

ing methods and to give general performance requirements for this type of capacitor. Test

severities and requirements prescribed in detail specifications referring to this sectional

specification shall be of equal or higher performance level, lower performance levels are not

permitted.

requirements than for grade 2 capacitors are acceptable
1.5.5
rated voltage
maximum DC voltage which may be applied continuously to a capacitor at the rated
temperature

NOTE The sum of the DC voltage and the peak AC voltage applied to the capacitor must not exceed the rated

voltage. The value of the peak AC voltage must not exceed the following percentages of the rated voltage at the

frequencies stated:
50 Hz: 20 %
100 Hz: 15 %
1 000 Hz: 3 %
