A guide to vibration tolerant aluminum hybrid capacitors for industrial and automotive applications

Aluminum hybrid capacitors typically have poorer vibration handling properties than conventional electrolytic types because the solid polymer cannot absorb vibration as well as a liquid electrolyte.

However, some manufacturers produce specially constructed versions designed to withstand high vibration environments.

The series listed below are either dedicated vibration tolerant devices or available in an optional vibration tolerant configuration.
