AVX’s radial leaded CapGuard™ products are designed to provide both transient voltage protection and EMI/RFI suppression for electronic circuits. CapGuards™ are ideally suited to filter out EMI/RFI noise generated by switch mode power supplies or motors on DC lines or I/O lines in electronic circuits. With multilayer varistor (MLV) utilized in CapGuard product, effective transient voltage protection is achieved to protect sensitive electronics from high voltage transients. The capacitor, on the other hand, absorbs high frequency noise on the line. The MLCC capacitors are designed with temperature stable X7R dielectric, allowing for wide temperature use with good capacitance stability.

Parts are AEC-Q200 qualified for use in automotive applications and are also suitable for use in general purpose applications. Available in epoxy coated, radial package in working voltages 26 and 45Vdc, peak current 200A and capacitances 0.47 and 1µF. Operating temperature range is -55°C to +125°C. Parts are available with Ni/Sn leads, however AVX can also offer Ni free wires upon request.
