Target Applications

EV/HEV/Solar Power/Wind Power/Inverters/Servos/UPS/X-ray/CT/MRI  and more

For the past 70 years, Hitachi Chemical has been the leading supplier of capacitors used in a wide range of applications. Manufacturing reliable capacitors from our own materials and technology provides our customers with flexible designs, quality control, and shorter lead time. Our aluminum electrolytic capacitors offer a longer life, larger capacitance, and lower failure in time (F.I.T) rate. While our film capacitors deliver a high ripple current, high voltage, and high reliability. With such a diverse product line, Hitachi Chemical capacitors drive innovations around the world.

Our capacitors for the automotive industry have high ripple currents, long lifespans at high heat, and are compact without reducing capacitance. This compact size gives you more space in your product design to add extra components and capabilities, or to just make your product more compact itself.

Combine the Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor with a Film Capacitor.  Together they work to minimize current variance resulting in a consistent fast charge for Electric Vehicles, as well as an increased lifespan for the capacitors.

Applications – EV, HEV, Charger, DC-DC Converter, Electric Air Compressor
