NOTES
1. Capacitance and ESRDC measured at 25C per Document Number 1007239 available at www.maxwell.com. 2. Per Maxwell Document 1007239 available at www.maxwell.com. CV 3. Maximum Peak current (1 sec) = C x ESRDC + 1 4. After 72 hours at 25C and rated voltage. Initial leakage current can be higher. 5. Per IEC 62391-2, Pd = 0.12V2 ESRDC x mass

Percentage change from value at 25C

V2 4 x ESRDC x mass CV2 7. Emax = 3,600 x mass CV2 8. Estored = 3,600 6. Pmax = 9. Cycle per Document Number 1007239 available at www.maxwell.com. 10. No more than 10% decrease in capacitance from minimum initial capacitance or 50% increase in ESR from maximum initial ESR. 11. Absolute maximum voltage non repeated, not to exceed 1 second.

MOUNTING RECOMMENDATIONS

Do not reverse polarity. Please refer to document number 1008238, available at maxwell.com for soldering recommendations.

MARKINGS

Products are marked with the following information: Rated capacitance, rated voltage, product number, name of manufacturer, positive and negative terminal, warning marking, serial number.
