Overview of RUBYCON's Snap-In series:

RUBYCON Snap-in easy-to-understand series definition:

Meaning of the first 2 letters

  • US series: 85°C 3.000hrs
  • MX series: 105°C, 2.000~3.000hrs
  • VX series: 105°C, 5.000hrs
  • HX series: 105°C, 3.000hrs~5.000hrs (high ripple current type)
  • GX series: 105°C, 7.000hrs
  • NX series: 105°C, 10.000hrs
  • TH series: 125°C, 2.000hrs

Meaning of the last letter

(Large size) C --> G --> H --> K (Smaller size)

(ex. MXC à MXG à MXH à MXK)

New series:

  • MXT series: 105°C, 3.000hrs
  • VXT series: 105°C, 5.000hrs
  • HXH series, HXK series: 105°C, 3.000~5.000hrs (depends on usage)

Until today, the last letter "K" (like MXK or VXK) was considered the smallest and highest specification series on the market. Now RUBYCON has introduced a new last letter "T" with the introduction of the MXT series (105°C, 3,000 hrs) and the VXT series (105°C 5,000 hrs).

At the same time, RUBYCON announced the new HX, HXH and HXK series, which have an optional rated ripple current for 3,000 hrs and 5,000 hrs lifetime respectively. These series are mainly targeted at automotive applications, especially on-board chargers that require very high ripple current. The temperature category is also set to -40...105°C as standard.

Target Application:

  • Suitable for applications requiring high voltage, capacitance and current (Industrial, Automotive)
  • Photovoltaic inverters for solar energy
  • 5G small cells
  • EVSE (EV charging stations, On-Board Chargers, etc.)
  • Fan less Power Supplies
