Benefits

• Widerangeoftemperaturefrom−25°Cto+70°C

(FGandFGHtypes)and−40°Cto+85°C(FGRtype)

• Maintenance free

• Maximum operating voltages of 3.5 VDC and 5.5 VDC

• Highly reliable against liquid leakage

• Lead-freeandRoHScompliant

Overview

FG Series Supercapacitors, also known as Electric Double-

Layer Capacitors (EDLCs), are intended for high energy

storage applications.

Applications

Supercapacitors have characteristics ranging from

traditional capacitors and batteries. As a result,

supercapacitors can be used like a secondary battery

when applied in a DC circuit. These devices are best suited

for use in low voltage DC hold-up applications such as

embeddedmicroprocessorsystemswithflashmemory.

Supercapacitors – FG Series

Performance Characteristics

Supercapacitors should not be used for applications such as ripple absorption because of their high internal resistance

(severalhundredmΩtoahundredΩ)comparedtoaluminumelectrolyticcapacitors.Thus,itsmainusewouldbe

similar to that of secondary battery such as power back-up in DC circuit. The following list shows the characteristics of

supercapacitors as compared to aluminum electrolytic capacitors for power back-up and secondary batteries.

SafetyRisks leakage, explosion leakage, combustion,

(*1) Aluminum electrolytic capacitors and supercapacitors have limited lifetime. However, when used under proper conditions, both can operate within a

predetermined lifetime.

(*2) There is no harm as it is a mere leak of water vapor which transitioned from water contained in the electrolyte (diluted sulfuric acid). However,

application of abnormal voltage surge exceeding maximum operating voltage may result in leakage and explosion.

Supercapacitors – FG Series

Notes on Using Supercapacitors or Electric Double-Layer Capacitors (EDLCs)

1. Circuitry Design

1.1 Useful life

The FC Series Supercapacitor (EDLC) uses an electrolyte in a sealed container. Water in the electrolyte can evaporate

while in use over long periods of time at high temperatures, thus reducing electrostatic capacity which in turn will create

greater internal resistance. The characteristics of the supercapacitor can vary greatly depending on the environment in

which it is used. Basic breakdown mode is an open mode due to increased internal resistance.

1.2Failrateinthefield

Basedonfielddata,thefailrateiscalculatedatapproximately0.006Fit.Weestimatethatunreportedfailuresareten

times this amount. Therefore, we assume that the fail rate is below 0.06 Fit.

1.3 Exceeding maximum usable voltage

Performance may be compromised and in some cases leakage or damage may occur if applied voltage exceeds

maximum working voltage.

1.4 Use of capacitor as a smoothing capacitor (ripple absorption)

As supercapacitors contain a high level of internal resistance, they are not recommended for use as smoothing

capacitors in electrical circuits. Performance may be compromised and, in some cases, leakage or damage may occur if

a supercapacitor is used in ripple absorption.

1.5 Series connections

As applied voltage balance to each supercapacitor is lost when used in series connection, excess voltage may be

applied to some supercapacitors, which will not only negatively affect its performance but may also cause leakage

and/or damage. Allow ample margin for maximum voltage or attach a circuit for applying equal voltage to each

supercapacitor (partial pressure resistor/voltage divider) when using supercapacitors in series connection. Also,

arrange supercapacitors so that the temperature between each capacitor will not vary.

1.6 Case Polarity

The supercapacitor is manufactured so that the terminal on the outer case is negative (-). Align the (-) symbol during

use. Even though discharging has been carried out prior to shipping, any residual electrical charge may negatively affect

other parts.

1.7 Use next to heat emitters

and posistors, etc.) where the supercapacitor itself may become heated.

1.8 Usage environment

This device cannot be used in any acidic, alkaline or similar type of environment.

2.2 Flow soldering conditions

SeeRecommendedReflowCurvesinSection–PrecautionsforUse

2.3 Installation using a soldering iron

Care must be taken to prevent the soldering iron from touching other parts when soldering. Keep the tip of the soldering

ironunder400°Candsolderingtimetowithin3seconds.Alwaysmakesurethatthetemperatureofthetipiscontrolled.

Internal capacitor resistance is likely to increase if the terminals are overheated.

2.4 Lead terminal processing

Do not attempt to bend or polish the capacitor terminals with sand paper, etc. Soldering may not be possible if the

metallic plating is removed from the top of the terminals.

2.5 Cleaning, Coating, and Potting

Except for the FM series, cleaning, coating and potting must not be carried out. Consult KEMET if this type of procedure

is necessary. Terminals should be dried at less than the maximum operating temperature after cleaning.

3.2 Environment conditions

Make sure there are no corrosive gasses such as sulfur dioxide, as penetration of the lead terminals is possible. Always

store this item in an area with low dust and dirt levels. Make sure that the packaging will not be deformed through heavy

loading, movement and/or knocks. Keep out of direct sunlight and away from radiation, static electricity and magnetic

fields.

3.3 Maximum storage period

This item may be stored up to one year from the date of delivery if stored at the conditions stated above.
