IEC 60384-16 pdf download Fixed capacitors for use in electronic equipment – Part 16: Sectional specification: Fixed metallized polypropylene film dielectric d.c. capacitors
This part of IEC 60384 applies to fixed capacitors with metallized electrodes and poly-propylene dielectric for use in electronic equipment.
These capacitors may have “self-healing properties” depending on conditions of use. Theyare mainly intended for use with direct voltage.Capacitors for alternating voltage and pulseapplications are not included, but are covered by lEC 60384-17.
The maximum power to be applied is 500 var at 50 Hz and the maximum peak voltage is 2 500 v.Two performance grades of capacitors are covered，Grade 1 for long-life application andGrade 2 for general application.
Capacitors for electromagnetic interference suppression are not included, but are covered bylEc 60384-14.
Capacitors for electrical shock hazard protection (covered by IEC 60065) and fluorescentlamp and motor capacitors (covered by lEC technical committee 33, and lEC technicalcommittee 34).
The object of this standard is to prescribe preferred ratings and characteristics and to selectfrom lEC 60384-1 (1999) the appropriate quality assessment procedures, tests and measuringmethods and to give general performance requirements for this type of capacitor. Testseverities and requirements prescribed in detail specifications referring to this sectionalspecification shall be of equal or higher performance level, because lower performance levelsare not permitted.

1.4 Information to be given in a detail specification
Detail specifications shall be derived from the relevant blank detail specification.
Detail specifications shall not specify requirements inferior to those of the generic, sectionalor blank detail specification. When ‘more severe requirements are included, they shall belisted in 1.9 of the detail specification and indicated in the test schedules, for example by anasterisk.
NOTE The information given in 1.4.1 may for convenience, be presented in tabular form.
The following information shall be given in each detail specification and the values quotedshall preferably be selected from those given in the appropriate clause of this sectionalspecification.
1.4.1Outline drawing and dimensions
There shall be an illustration of the capacitor as an aid to easy recognition and for comparisonof the capacitor with others. Dimensions and their associated tolerances,which affectinterchangeability and mounting,shall be given in the detail specification.All dimensions shallpreferably be stated in millimetres.
Normally, the numerical values shall be given for the length of the body, the width and heightof the body and the wire spacing,or for cylindrical types，the body diameter,and the lengthand diameter of the terminations. When necessary,for example when a number of items(capacitance values/voltage ranges) are covered by a detail specification, the dimensions andtheir associated tolerances shall be placed in a table below the drawing.
