(1) OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT, MOUNTING ENVIRONMENT AND CONDITIONS.
◎Ensure that operational and mounting conditions follow the specified conditions detailed in the catalog and specification sheets.
(2) OPERATING TEMPERATURE, RIPPLE CURRENT AND LOAD LIFE
◎Operating temperature and applied ripple current should be within the specified value in the catalog or specification sheets.
Ⅰ.Do not use Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors at temperature which exceeds the specified category temperature range.
Ⅱ.Do not apply excessive current to the capacitors, which exceeds the specified rated ripple current.
◎During circuit design, please ensure that capacitors are selected to match with the lifetime requirements of the application.
◎Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors are normally polarized. Reverse voltage or AC voltage should not be applied. When polarity of applied voltage is uncertain or when the polarity may flip over, nonpolar type capacitors should be used, but the nonpolar type cannot be used for AC circuit.
◎Standard Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors are not suitable for rapid charge and discharge applications. Consult with HER MEI about specially designed capacitors for rapid charge and discharge.
(4) APPLIED VOLTAGE
◎Do not exceed the rated voltage of capacitors.
(5) CONDITIONS OF USE
◎The following environment should be avoided when using Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors.
Ⅰ.Damp conditions such as water, saltwater spray, or oil spray or fumes. High humidity or humidity condensation situations.
Ⅱ.Hazardous gas/fumes such as hydrogen sulfide, sulfurous acid gas, nitrous acid, chlorine gas or ammonia.
Ⅲ.Exposure to ozone, ultraviolet rays or radiation.
Ⅳ.Severe vibration or shock which exceeds the condition specified in the catalog or specification sheets.
