Low-profile THA and THAS Series aluminum Thinpack capacitors offer high-energy density to support smaller products with simplified assembly and higher reliability.

Sealed, laser-welded aluminum cases eliminate end-seal gaskets. A valve vents hydrogen gas to reduce swelling.

Both capacitors are rated for 3,000 hr. lifespans (at 85°C for THA, at 105°C for THAs). Values from 60µF at 450VDC to 18,000µF at 10VDC, with 72 capacitance/voltage combinations are available.

Applications include circuits that require high capacitance bulk storage and filtering in a low-height profile, such as drones and unmanned aerial systems, tablets, laptops, instrumentation, commercial-grade LED driver modules, compact power supplies, and 1U rack-mounted devices.

Pivot arm robot

Designed to eliminate height restrictions in space-contrained environments, the vertical axis of the PA-5 gantry robot is a pivoting arm that can fit beneath low ceilings. The robot can lift and transport the same loads as a conventional vertical axis.

The pivoting vertical axis eliminates headspace requirements, saves space, and increases payload up to 25%. It can be fitted with a mobile overhead guard, eliminating the need for overhead safety guards for the length of the horizontal axis.
