FIXED CAPACITORS FOR USE IN ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT –
Part 16: Sectional specification: Fixed metallized
polypropylene film dielectric d.c. capacitors
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.

International Standard IEC 60384-16 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 40:

Capacitors and resistors for electronic equipment.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1982, amendment 1

(1987) and amendment 2 (1992) and constitutes minor revisions related to tables, figures and

references.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
40/1595/FDIS 40/1628/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

polypropylene film dielectric d.c. capacitors
1 General
1.1 Scope

This part of IEC 60384 applies to fixed capacitors with metallized electrodes and poly-

propylene dielectric for use in electronic equipment.

These capacitors may have "self-healing properties" depending on conditions of use. They

are mainly intended for use with direct voltage. Capacitors for alternating voltage and pulse

applications are not included, but are covered by IEC 60384-17.

The maximum power to be applied is 500 var at 50 Hz and the maximum peak voltage is 2 500 V.

Two performance grades of capacitors are covered, Grade 1 for long-life application and

Grade 2 for general application.

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

IEC 60384-14.

Capacitors for electrical shock hazard protection (covered by IEC 60065) and fluorescent

lamp and motor capacitors (covered by IEC technical committee 33, and IEC technical

committee 34).
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 measuring

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, because lower performance levels

are not permitted.
1.3 Normative references

The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document.

1.4 Information to be given in a detail specification

Detail specifications shall be derived from the relevant blank detail specification.

Detail specifications shall not specify requirements inferior to those of the generic, sectional

or blank detail specification. When more severe requirements are included, they shall be

listed in 1.9 of the detail specification and indicated in the test schedules, for example by an

asterisk.

NOTE The information given in 1.4.1 may for convenience, be presented in tabular form.

The following information shall be given in each detail specification and the values quoted

shall preferably be selected from those given in the appropriate clause of this sectional

specification.
1.4.1 Outline drawing and dimensions

There shall be an illustration of the capacitor as an aid to easy recognition and for comparison

of the capacitor with others. Dimensions and their associated tolerances, which affect

interchangeability and mounting, shall be given in the detail specification. All dimensions shall

preferably be stated in millimetres.

Normally, the numerical values shall be given for the length of the body, the width and height

of the body and the wire spacing, or for cylindrical types, the body diameter, and the length

and diameter of the terminations. When necessary, for example when a number of items

(capacitance values/voltage ranges) are covered by a detail specification, the dimensions and

their associated tolerances shall be placed in a table below the drawing.

When the configuration is other than described above, the detail specification shall state such

dimensional information as will adequately describe the capacitor. When the capacitor is not

designed for use on printed boards, this shall be clearly stated in the detail specification

1.4.2 Mounting

The detail specification shall specify the method of mounting to be applied for normal use and

for the application of the vibration and the bump or shock tests. The capacitors shall be

mounted by their normal means. The design of the capacitor may be such that special

mounting fixtures are required in its use. In this case, the detail specification shall describe

the mounting fixtures and they shall be used in the application of the vibration and bump or

shock tests.
1.4.3 Ratings and characteristics

The ratings and characteristics shall be in accordance with the relevant clauses of this

specification, together with the following:
1.4.3.1 Rated capacitance range
See 2.2.1.

NOTE When products approved to the detail specification may have different ranges, the following statement

should be added:
"The range of values available in each voltage range is given in IEC QC 001005.
1.4.3.2 Particular characteristics

Additional characteristics may be listed, when they are considered necessary to specify

adequately the component for design and application purposes.
