Fixed capacitors for use in electronic equipment - Part 4: Sectional specification - Fixed aluminium electrolytic capacitors with solid (MnO2) and non-solid electrolyt (IEC 60384-4:2016)

This part of IEC 60384 applies to fixed aluminium electrolytic capacitors with solid (MnO2) and
non-solid electrolyte primarily intended for d.c. applications for use in electronic equipment. It
covers capacitors for long-life applications and capacitors for general-purpose applications.
Capacitors for fixed surface mount aluminium electrolytic capacitors are not included but they
are covered by IEC 60384-18.
Capacitors for special-purpose applications may need additional requirements.

Condensateurs fixes utilisés dans les équipements électroniques - Partie 4: Spécification intermédiaire - Condensateurs électrolytiques à l’aluminium, à électrolyte solide (MnO2) et non solide

L'IEC 60384-4:2016 s'applique aux condensateurs fixes électrolytiques à l'aluminium, à électrolyte solide (MnO2) et non solide, destinés principalement aux applications en courant continu dans des équipements électroniques. Elle couvre les condensateurs utilisés dans des applications de longue durée de vie et les condensateurs utilisés dans des applications d'usage général. Les condensateurs utilisés dans des applications d'usage spécial peuvent nécessiter des exigences supplémentaires.

Nespremenljivi kondenzatorji za uporabo v elektronski opremi - 4. del: Področna specifikacija - Nespremenljivi aluminijski elektrolitski kondenzatorji s trdim (MnO2) in netrdim elektrolitom (IEC 60384-4:2016)

Ta del standarda IEC 60384 se uporablja za nespremenljive aluminijske elektrolitske kondenzatorje s trdim (MnO2) in
netrdim elektrolitom, ki so namenjeni predvsem načinom uporabe, povezanim z enosmernim tokom, v elektronski opremi. Zajema kondenzatorje z dolgo življenjsko dobo in kondenzatorje za splošno uporabo. Aluminijski elektrolitski kondenzatorji za površinsko montažo niso vključeni, vendar so zajeti v standardu IEC 60384-18.
Za kondenzatorje za uporabo za posebne namene so morda potrebne dodatne zahteve.

FIXED CAPACITORS FOR USE IN ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT –
Part 4: Sectional specification –
Fixed aluminium electrolytic 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 itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

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 60384-4 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 40:

Capacitors and resistors for electronic equipment.

This fifth edition cancels and replaces the fourth edition published in 2007. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) Revision of the structure
