Panasonic’s ECQ-UA Series Metallized Polypropylene Film Capacitors benefit from an original in-house patterned metallization process with a fuse mechanism function. This unique technology delivers stable capacitance levels over the product lifetime and higher reliability of the application. Functioning as interference suppression Capacitors, the ECQ-UA Series is ideal for a broad spectrum of applications including input/output filtering for charging stations or the input side of On-Board chargers, industrial power supplies, the range of EV/PHEV applications, and renewable energy infrastructure. The AEC-Q200 compliance of the ECQ-UA Series ensures that these Film Capacitors are meeting the most stringent quality standards in the industry.
These ECQ-UA Series Film Capacitors feature an operating temperature range of -40°C to 110°C, a rated voltage of 275V.AC up to 310 V.AC and a nominal capacitance range of 0.1μF up to 10μF. A flame-retardant plastic case and non-combustible resin are utilized leading to accreditation under UL/CSA and European safety regulation for Class X2. All the products are fully RoHS and REACH compliant.
ECQ-UA Series Film Capacitors for automotive applications offer high humidity resistance (THB test: 85°C, 85%, 240V.AC, 1000 hours with 310V.AC rated products) and high thermal shock resistance (-40°C ⇔ 85°C, 1000 cycles).
The ECQ-UA Series expands with new parts designed with a voltage range of 310V.AC, delivering a stable capacitance level over the product lifetime. Learn More

Panasonic components specified as AEC-Q200 Compliant are consistently designed into automotive systems. However, today’s Design Engineers are specifying AEC-Q200 components to meet the high-quality standards of devices beyond automotive applications.
Parts that pass the AEC tests are qualified, high-quality components that can be used in critical environments. Therefore, there should be no need to conduct other component level tests saving both time and expense.
Current AEC-Q200 Standard documents developed by the AEC Component Technical Committee are available on the AEC website. The AEC is an organization based in the U.S. that sets qualification standards for the supply of components in the automotive electronics industry.
If your next device requires components that meet the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) requirements for components suitable for harsh automotive environments, think Panasonic!
