News Release September 29, 2010

Added of 500 V rated voltage snap-in terminal type
aluminum electrolytic capacitors to GN series.

Preface
Nichicon Corporation has recently added a product with a rated voltage of 500V to our GN Series of snap-in terminal type aluminum electrolytic capacitors, and we will begin mass production of it in October. The primary applications of this series include power supply input smoothing and general purpose inverter power supply smoothing.
We showed these products at CEATEC JAPAN 2010, which was held October 5-9 (Tuesday-Saturday) at the Makuhari Messe International Convention Complex.
 
Overview and development background
We created the GN series as a series of compact snap-in terminal type 105°C capacitors. The GN series lineup has a rated voltage range of 160-450V and has been highly regarded for power supply input smoothing and general purpose inverter power supply smoothing applications. However, there has been demand for products with withstand voltages of greater than 450V, so we have been consulting with our customers about use conditions and other factors.
In recent years, for the realization of a low carbon society, the development of equipment that uses solar power generation, in particular, has been great, and the demand for capacitors with withstand voltage ratings higher than 450V has increased. By adding a product with a rated voltage of 500V at this time to our lineup, we are able to respond to market needs for even higher withstand voltages.
 
Features
By optimizing the GN series capacitor with a rated voltage of 500V through the application of high strength, high amplification electrolytic foil and rolling methods that we have cultivated over the years, we have been able to maintain the same size as the rest of the lineup.
