At today’s Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Show, DMTL announced the acquisition of a major new franchise – Suncon, makers of industry leading Aluminium Electrolytic capacitors including the unique family of Aluminium Electrolytic Capacitors with Hybrid Conductive Polymer – The EP-cap.

DMTL is widely recognised as a leader in the application of passive component technology and sees the addition of the Suncon product range as significantly enhancing a capacitor line-up that already includes AVX and Holystone.

According to Pete Jones, Commercial Director at DMTL, Suncon’s Aluminium Electrolytic capacitors are among the lowest-profile aluminium electrolytics available today. “They are perfect for the automotive industry as well as those applications where resistance to vibration, long life and high reliability are crucial”. Said Pete Jones. “Suncon has a long history in capacitor design and manufacture and will be known to some as the company behind Sanyo’s capacitor portfolio. We are delighted that Suncon has chosen DMTL to spearhead its push into the UK market and we look forward to helping our customers design around these exciting passive components”. He adds

For Suncon, Kanji Hamano, European Sales Manager (Application Engineer) said “I am very pleased that we are now working with DMTL, a passive components specialist that has many years’ experience helping its customers design with the latest devices. DMTL’s high profile within the automotive industry and other sectors where high performance and high reliability are important will ensure that we can meet our ambitious growth targets in the coming years.”

A major focus product is the EP-cap. It is a unique aluminium electrolytic capacitor with a hybrid cathode formed by combining an electrolyte and electroconductive polymer with high conductivity. Rated voltages can be up to 125V and performance and reliability levels are maintained at temperatures up to 135ºC.
The capacitors feature a very low ESR at high frequencies when compared with conventional electrolytics while the structure of the hybrid cathode electrolyte allows EP-cap devices to have the same self-healing properties as traditional aluminium electrolytic capacitors.
