The MKP-16 capacitors, made from metallized polypropylene film, are designed for use in audio equipment. The design of the capacitors minimizes the parasitic impedance components: inductance and resistance, resulting in improved quality of sound in a given audio system.
High quality and durability of the capacitors is assured by the use of carefully selected materials, production technology, as well as testing and measuring methods. These capacitors feature the use of a dielectric material with the property of self-healing during operation, axial terminals made of tinned copper wire, cover in the form of special protective tape, and self-extinguishing potting compound of flammability class VO. The capacitors are furthermore subjected to a series of specific tests and measurements, including a unique test using pulses of increased current amplitude and frequency of 22kHz.
The MKP-16 capacitors can be used in d.c. and a.c. circuits within the temperature range of their climatic category. The d.c. voltage value or a.c. voltage amplitude should not exceed the specified rated voltage.
