AC Safety Capacitors


Tecate group offers a family of AC Safety Capacitors for X and Y class applications which require across the line and line to ground protection. This product is UL recognized and IEC 60384-1 compliant, and available in SMD and radial through hole packages. These capacitors are ideal for providing surge and transient protection to sensitive electronic circuitry, as well as the users. These devices are also commonly used to filter EMI in power supply applications.

Tecate's New High Capacitance, Conductive Polymer Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

Tecate group MXCP surface mount aluminum electrolytic capacitors.SMD Devices Available In Capacitance Range from 1.7 to 1000µF and

In Voltages from 6.3 to 100 VDC

 San Diego, CA, June 9, 2010...Tecate Industries, a leading global supplier of capacitors and supercapacitors, today announced the release of the MXCP series of conductive polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitors, which includes the SMD Types MXCPA, MXCPH and MXCPP.  By replacing the liquid electrolyte with solid polymer material, Tecate's new capacitors are highly stable when exposed to temperature fluctuations, and boast very low ESR (equivalent series resistance) values and high ripple current ratings. The series' high capacitance values and low ESR enable low impedance at high frequency to support excellent noise suppression and ripple absorption in a wide array of applications in which space is critical and cost per placement and maximum throughput are  priorities.  


The RoHS-compliant series consists of SMD parts in capacitance range of 1.7 to 1000µF, and with rated voltages from 6.3 to 100 VDC.   Capacitors in the series are available for wide temperature ranges from -55 degrees C to +105 degrees C and from -55 degrees C to +125 degrees C.  Versions with load life ratings to 5,000 or 10,000 hours (+105 degrees C) are provided.


 Tecate's MXCP series is an ideal alternative to standard aluminum electrolytic capacitors in a broad range of consumer, industrial and automotive electronics applications requiring extended life, extended temperature range, and low profile.  The parts are most frequently specified for use in flat-panel TVs, liquid crystal displays (LCDs), plasma display panels (PDPs), PCs and industrial PCs, servers, and power supplies.


Offered in five case sizes ranging from 6.3 mm x 6.0 mm to 10 mm x 12.5 mm, the MXCP capacitors are coated with epoxy resin for superior heat resistance, humidity resistance and solvent resistance.  Parts are compatible with Pb-free soldering processes, and supplied tape and reel.   For additional information, visit,


In quantities of 5,000, per piece pricing for Tecate’s MXCP series of conductive polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitors ranges from approximately $0.199 to $0.899 depending on part number. 

Delivery is 8 to 10 weeks.  Samples are available upon request.
