Fixed capacitors for use in electronic equipment - Part 2: Sectional specification - Fixed metallized polyethylene-terephthalate film dielectric DC capacitors (IEC 60384-2:2021)

This part of IEC 60384 applies to fixed capacitors for direct current, with metallized electrodes
and polyethylene-terephthalate dielectric for use in electronic equipment.
These capacitors have a possibility of "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. Two performance grades of capacitors are covered: grade 1 for long-life
application and grade 2 for general application.
Capacitors for electromagnetic interference suppression and surface mount fixed metallized
polyethylene-terephthalate film dielectric DC capacitors are not included, but are covered by
IEC 60384-14 and IEC 60384-19, respectively.
The object of this document is to prescribe preferred ratings and characteristics and to select
from IEC 60384-1 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 are of equal or higher performance level, because lower performance levels are
not permitted.

FIXED CAPACITORS FOR USE IN ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT –
Part 2: Sectional specification – Fixed metallized

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 60384-2 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 2011. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

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

edition:

a) revision of all parts of the document based on the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2:2018 and

harmonization with other similar kinds of documents;

b) the document structure has been organized to follow the new sectional specification

structure decided by TC 40;

c) revision of tables and Clause 5 so as to prevent duplications and contradictions.

The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:

Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in the

report on voting indicated in the above table.

This document has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

A list of all parts in the IEC 60384 series, published under the general title Fixed capacitors for

FIXED CAPACITORS FOR USE IN ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT –
Part 2: Sectional specification – Fixed metallized
polyethylene-terephthalate film dielectric DC capacitors
1 Scope

This part of IEC 60384 applies to fixed capacitors for direct current, with metallized electrodes

and polyethylene-terephthalate dielectric for use in electronic equipment.

These capacitors have a possibility of "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. Two performance grades of capacitors are covered: grade 1 for long-life

application and grade 2 for general application.

Capacitors for electromagnetic interference suppression and surface mount fixed metallized

polyethylene-terephthalate film dielectric DC capacitors are not included, but are covered by

IEC 60384-14 and IEC 60384-19, respectively.

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

from IEC 60384-1 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 are of equal or higher performance level, because lower performance levels are

not permitted.
