BS EN 60384-18:2007 pdf download.Fixed capacitors for use in electronic equipment—— Part 18: Sectional specification — Fixed aluminium electrolytic surface mount capacitors with solid (MnO2) and non-solid electrolyte.
Normally, the numerical values shall be given for the length of the body, the width and height of the body and the wire spacing, or for cylindrical types, the body diameter, and the length and diameter of the terminations. When necessary, for example, when a number of items (capacitance valuesivoltage ranges) are covered by a detail specification, the dimensions and their associated tolerances shall be placed in a table below the drawing.
When the configuration is other than described above, the detail specification shall state such dimensional information as will adequately describe the capacitor. When the capacitor is not designed for use on printed boards, this shall be clearly stated in the detail spec.fication.
The detail specification shall specify the method of mounting to be applied for normal use and for the application of the vibration and the bump or shock tests. The capacitors shall be mounted by their normal means, The design of the capacitor may be such that special mounting fixtures are required in its use. In this case, the detail specification shall describe the mounting fixtures and they shall be used In the application of the vibration and bump or shock tests.
1.4.3 RatIngs and characteristics
The ratings and characteristics shall be In accordance with the relevant clauses of this specification, together with the following.
