IEC 60384-6 pdf download Fixed capacitors for use in electronic equipment – Part 6: Sectional specification – Fixed metallized polycarbonate film dielectric d.c. capacitors
This part of lEC 60384 applies to fixed capacitors for direct current with metallized electrodesand polycarbonate dielectric for use in electronic equipment.
These capacitors may have “self-healing properties” depending on conditions of use.Theyare primarily intended for applications where the a.c. component is small with respect to therated voltage.Two performance grades of capacitors are covered,Grade 1 for long-lifeapplication and Grade 2 for general application.
Capacitors for electromagnetic interference and connection to the supply mains are notincluded but are covered by lEC 60384-14.

1.3lnformation 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 1.3.1 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.
1.3.1Outline 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 affect
interchangeability and mounting, shall be given in the detail specification. All dimensions shallbe 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.
When the configuration is other than described above, the detail specification shall state suchdimensional information as will adequately describe the capacitor. When the capacitor is notdesigned for use on printed boards, this shall be clearly stated in the detail specification.
