What are Dry Film Capacitors (Dry Metalized Film Capacitors)?
Dry Film Capacitors (Dry Metalized Film Capacitors) are available to fill almost all needs for HID ballast applications. Advance's dry film capacitors typically require only half the space used by oil-filled capacitors due to their not requiring additional spacing for safety. Dry film capacitors have no exposed live voltage terminals, and thus do not require additional clearance in the fixture. The compact, lightweight, cylindrical non-conductive case and two insulated wires or terminals reduce the required mounting space. Capacitor discharge resistors (when required) are installed within the capacitor case. Dry Film Capacitors are UL recognized and contain no PCB material.
The maximum allowed dry film capacitor case temperature is 105C
