Aerovox produces both oil-filled and dry film capacitors for the HID and sign ballast lighting markets. Constructed with film designed to withstand the rigors of the application, these units are built to operate up to 105ºC.
HID lighting film capacitors are built with a ±3% tolerance on capacitance, and are designed to operate for a minimum of 60,000 hours. Sign ballast capacitors are constructed with film/foil technology and have tolerances based on application requirements.
For emergency lighting applications, see Axial Wrap and Fill Capacitors.
