KYOCERA AVX Class X1/Y2 KGK Series and Class X2 KGH Series commercial surface-mount, safety-certified, Class-X and Class-Y safety-certified MLCCs capacitors protect against surges and transients and provide EMI filtering ac line filtering applications. KGK Series can be used as an X1 capacitor in across-the-line applications or as a Y2 capacitor in line-to-ground applications. X2 safety capacitors like the KGH Series are designed for direct connection across main voltages of 250VAC or more and reduce noise by reducing the device’s input impedance. Products deliver high reliability, high stability and high capacitance in small case sizes equipped with copper or silver/nickel/tin terminations that exhibit superior leaching resistance during reflow soldering processes. Devices are also halogen-free, RoHS-compliant, TUV- and UL-certified, and compliant with IEC 60384-14:2013 and EN 60384-14:2013.
