 NICHICON CORPORATION developed the LGZ series of snap-in terminal-type aluminum electrolytic capacitors guaranteed for 20,000 hours at 105C achieving the longest life to meet demands for long-life in the environmental and renewable energy fields.
These products will be displayed at CEATEC JAPAN 2018, held at Makuhari Messe from Tuesday, October 16, to Friday, October 19.

Overview and Development Background

 Recently, in the environmental and renewable energy fields, there has been an increasing demand for longer life parts for maintenance-free operation and reduced maintenance costs. To meet these demands, NICHICON developed the new LGZ series, which offers the longest life surpassing the current lineup of our long-life LGR series products (guaranteed for 10,000 hours at 105C).


 The LGZ series achieves a long life of 20,000 hours at 105C through the combination of highly reliable electrolytic foil and electrolyte paper with an increased amount of electrolytic solution. Longer life often involves a trade off with product size. By using high reliability electrolytic foil Nichicon was able to double the life of the same sized product when compared to the current LGR series. The adoption of the LGZ series will contribute to longer equipment life.
