Reference EN 60384-26:2010
Title Fixed capacitors for use in electronic equipment - Part 26: Sectional specification - Fixed aluminium electrolytic capacitors with conductive polymer solid electrolyte
Project Number 22405
Abstract/Scope IEC 60384-26:2010 is applicable to aluminium electrolytic capacitors with conductive polymer solid electrolyte primarily intended for d.c. applications for use in electronic equipment. NOTE: Aluminium electrolytic capacitors with solid (MnO2) are covered by IEC 60384-4 and IEC 60384-4-2. Surface mount aluminium electrolytic capacitors with conductive polymer solid electrolyte are covered by IEC 60384-25 and IEC 60384-25-1. The object of this standard is to prescribe preferred ratings and characteristics and to select from IEC 60384-1, the appropriate quality assessment procedures, tests and measuring methods and to give general performance requirements for this type of capacitor. Test severities and requirements prescribed in detail specifications referring to this sectional specification shall be of equal or higher performance level, lower performance levels are not permitted.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
