PEx - Metallized Polyester

* click here for a certification of compliance

ERSE’s PEx Metallized Polyester Film Capacitors are an excellent choice for a wide range of electrical applications. One of the most important features of a quality film capacitor is the purity of the film. Every PEx capacitor is manufactured with high purity Dupont film, to insure a higher level of performance when compared to our competitors. Most of our competitors are using a low grade of Chinese film in their metallized polyester caps. Great care is taken during the manufacturing process to insure tight winding of the foil to prevent microphonic distortion and tight tolerances. These PEx metallized polyester film caps are perfect for crossover networks and are a higher quality alternative to non polar caps.

*Most ERSE PEx Metallized Polyester Film Capacitors are Lead Free (RoHS Compliant) and available in many stocked and un-stocked values. View the parts list for more information.
