Aerovox snubber film capacitors are designed for the high peak current operation required for protection against transient voltages. Such voltages are caused by the high dI/dT generated in switching power electronics applications. Aerovox IGBT Snubber capacitors are offered in standard voltages of 630 VDC to 3,000 VDC for 100,000-hour operation.
