Fixed capacitors for use in electronic equipment - Part 17: Sectional specification - Fixed metallized polypropylene film dielectric AC and pulse capacitors (IEC 60384-17:2019)

This part of IEC 60384 applies to fixed capacitors with metallized electrodes and
polypropylene dielectric for use in electronic equipment.
NOTE Capacitors that have mixed film and metallized electrodes are also within the scope of this standard.
These capacitors may have "self-healing" properties depending on conditions of use.
Capacitors covered by this specification are mainly intended for use with alternating voltage
and/or for pulse applications. The maximum reactive power applicable is 10 000 var and the
maximum peak voltage is 3 000 V.
Capacitors for reactive power exceeding 500 var, and to which a maximum peak voltage of
2 500 V at 50 Hz can be applied, are not covered by this document, except when they are the
highest part of a range of reactive power mainly situated below 500 var at 50 Hz.
This document is not intended to cover capacitance values higher than 20 μF.
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 of IEC technical
committee 61) and fluorescent lamp and motor capacitors (covered by IEC 60252-1 and
IEC 60252-2 of IEC technical committee 33), and capacitors for use in tubular fluorescent and
other discharge lamp circuits (covered by IEC 61048 and IEC 61049 of IEC technical
committee 34) are also excluded.

Condensateurs fixes utilisés dans les équipements électroniques - Partie 17: Spécification intermédiaire - Condensateurs fixes pour tension alternative et pour impulsions à diélectrique en film de polypropylène métallisé (IEC 60384-17:2019)

IEC 60384-17:2019 est disponible sous forme de IEC 60384-17:2019 RLV qui contient la Norme internationale et sa version Redline, illustrant les modifications du contenu technique depuis l'édition précédente.L'IEC 60384-17:2019 s'applique aux condensateurs fixes à électrodes métallisées et à diélectrique en polypropylène destinés aux équipements électroniques. Les condensateurs équipés à la fois d'électrodes métallisées et d'électrodes en film sont également couverts par la présente norme. Ces condensateurs peuvent avoir des propriétés "d'autorégénération" en fonction des conditions d'utilisation. Les condensateurs couverts par la présente spécification sont principalement destinés à être utilisés dans des applications à impulsions et/ou à tension alternative. La puissance réactive maximale est 10 000 var et la tension de crête maximale est 3 000 V. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: a) toutes les parties du document ont été révisées sur la base des Directives ISO/IEC, Partie 2:2016 (septième édition) et harmonisées avec les autres types de documents similaires; b) les tableaux et l'Article 4 ont été révisés afin d'éliminer les doublons et les contradictions; c) de nouvelles classes de résistance à la chaleur humide continue (avec les conditions d'essai associées) ont été ajoutées à l'Article 4 et à l'Annexe A.

Nespremenljivi kondenzatorji za uporabo v elektronski opremi - 17. del: Področna specifikacija - Nespremenljivi kondenzatorji z dielektrikom iz metalizirane polipropilenske folije za izmenične napetosti in impulzni kondenzatorji (IEC 60384-17:2019)

Ta del standarda IEC 60384 se uporablja za fiksne kondenzatorje z metaliziranimi elektrodami in polipropilenskim dielektrikom za uporabo v elektronski opremi.
OPOMBA: Področje uporabe tega standarda zajema tudi kondenzatorje z elektrodami iz mešane folije in metaliziranimi elektrodami.
Ti kondenzatorji imajo lahko »samoozdravljive lastnosti«, odvisno od pogojev uporabe.
Kondenzatorji, ki so zajeti v tej specifikaciji, so zlasti namenjeni uporabi z izmenično napetostjo in/ali za impulzno uporabo. Najvišja jalova moč znaša 10.000 varov, najvišja temenska napetost pa 3000 V.
Kondenzatorji za jalovo moč, ki presega 500 varov, in najvišjo temensko napetost 2500 V pri 50 Hz niso zajeti v tem dokumentu, razen kadar je najvišji del obsega jalove moči večinoma pod 500 vari pri 50 Hz.
Ta dokument ne zajema vrednosti kapacitivnosti, višjih od 20 μF.
Zajeta sta dva razreda učinkovitosti kondenzatorjev, tj. razred 1 za dolgotrajno uporabo in razred 2 za splošno uporabo.
Kondenzatorji za preprečevanje elektromagnetnih motenj niso vključeni, vendar so zajeti v standardu IEC 60384-14.
Izključeni so tudi kondenzatorji za zaščito pred električnim udarom (zajeti v standardu IEC 60065 tehničnega odbora IEC 61), kondenzatorji v fluorescenčnih sijalkah in motorjih (zajeti v standardih IEC 60252-1 in IEC 60252-2 tehničnega odbora IEC 33) ter kondenzatorji, ki se uporabljajo v tokokrogih cevnih fluorescenčnih in drugih razelektritvenih sijalk (zajeti v standardih IEC 61048 in IEC 61049 tehničnega odbora IEC 34).

FIXED CAPACITORS FOR USE IN ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT –
Part 17: Sectional specification – Fixed metallized polypropylene
film dielectric AC and pulse 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 60384-17 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 40:

Capacitors and resistors for electronic equipment.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2005. This

edition constitutes a technical revision.

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

edition:

a) all parts of the document have been revised based on the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2:2016
