Guidelines for Using Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

March 29, 2021|

In DC applications, confirm the polarity. If the polarity is reversed, the circuit life will be shortened or the capacitor may be damaged. Generally, an intermittent reverse voltage of 1 volt DC is allowed. Capacitors used in circuits whose polarity is occasionally reversed or whose polarity is unknown requires the use of a bi-polar capacitor.
