In another industry first, Passive Plus Inc. now performs 100 percent partial discharge testing on all leaded capacitors. This added capability continues to enhance the reliability of Passive Plus capacitors for demanding high voltage applications.

Partial discharge testing detects faint electrical discharges in multilayer ceramic capacitors under high voltage conditions. Unacceptably high levels of discharge indicate the presence of large or numerous voids internal to the capacitor, or other possible surface defects, which can lead to immediate or latent catastrophic failures.  Low or zero levels of discharge indicate a robust and reliable dielectric structure, ensuring reliability under high stress conditions.

Passive Plus discharge testing exceeds the requirements of MIL-PRF-49467.

With over 30 years in the RF/Microwave industry, Passive Plus, Inc. manufactures high quality, high power passive components using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques. Specializing in magnetic & non-magnetic HI-Q capacitors product lines, PPI supplies reliable quality components to the aerospace, telecommunications, medical, semiconductor, and military industries.
