Comparison tables between 5 major Japanese Low ESR capacitors
 
I have developed below, comparison tables of the characteristics of 5 major Japanese Low ESR capacitors which i hope you find useful for ease of comparison instead of referring to the PDF technical data sheets.

Re: Comparison tables between 5 major Japanese Low ESR capasitors
 
Well, after 6 hours nontsop working on this, i give up. That's as far as my blood (& eyes) could go :D, honestly it took tons of drink to complete them. And im not satisfied yet with the result. A scripted webpage would be more excellent...


At 1000uF range, diameter of the caps became less important as they are easy to obtain at 10mm and 8mm. So it would be simpler and more compact if I include the 8mm and 10mm at the same table.. But that can not do, i have to keep my table consistent.. doh!!

:goofy:

Comments are always welcome.. :cheers:


to be continued..

Yanz, you've done a lot of work! I would suggest grouping the caps by similar performance rather than by vendor. Since many vendors' have series whose specs are very, very similar (e.g. KY and HE, or LXZ and PW), users of your chart could both see what is available for a specific value and voltage, and the grades of performance.

Thanks! Yup, you are right. That gives me an idea of how the data would be useful for they who need it.. The work is still far from finish.

Altough i have done a caps comparison by performance, let me think again how to put the data in the table. I ask to myself: should I use one table or several tables.. or no tables at all just links to them. What is the easiest arangement so it can be read easily... etc..

Another idea: table of relation between endurance and temp (range from 105C, 95C, 85C... 35C)

Anyway i hope my raw data are easy to read, and i hope the color code do some help ;).

I will attach the excel documents when it is ready.


We'll have to do sorting and grouping those series/brand by their performance. Pls give me input/opinion about that...


BTW I include my own observation. Caps with very close characteristics:
  • group 1: Chemicon LXZ = Nichicon PW = Panasonic FC
    group 2: Chemicon KZH ~ Nichicon HV ~ Rubycon ZLH
    group 3: Chemicon KY = Nichicon HE = Rubycon YXG
    group 4: Chemicon KZE = Nichicon HD = Rubycon ZL = Sanyo WX
    group 5: Chemicon KZG = Rubycon MBZ = Sanyo WG
    group 6: Chemicon KZJ = Rubycon MCZ
    group 7: Nichicon HZ

Performance grade:
  • group 1 < group 2 < group 3 < group 4 < group 5 < group 6


This rise some question:
  • Where is Panasonic FM belong in the comparison?

    group 5 < Panasonic FM < group 6

  • Or, Nichicon PM ?

    Nichicon PM = Chemicon LXY/LXV ~ group 1

    Why are'nt they belong to group 1 ? They are longer size so they are slightly better in impedance. But if that isnt enough to justify it, we can add them to group 1:

    group 1: Chemicon LXZ = Nichicon PW = Panasonic FC = ( Nichicon PM + Chemicon LXY)


Now this gives me a headache. There are a lot of series with almost the same spec but different in case size (advanced technology) and endurance . Wait, should we create comparison by endurance?

Isn't endurance = performance?


Man, i would avoid complexity as much as possible. *double headache.. help!

Re: Comparison tables between 5 major Japanese Low ESR capasitors
 
Check also the thread made by Big Pope:

(Comparison Table of 4 Major Japanese Low ESR Capacitors)
http://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1191


He made this:

Code:

Nichicon        NCC                Rubycon        SANYO                Remarks
VZ                KMG                YXA                MV-CZ                105C General Purpose
PW                LXZ                -                MV-CX                Miniature, Low ESR
HE                KY                YXG                MV-CA                K6, K6-2, P2, P3 grade
HD                KZE                ZL                MV-WX                K7, P3 grade
HV                KZH                ZLH                -                Extra long life, miniature, Low ESR
HM                KZG                MBZ                MV-WG                K7, K8, P4, P4+ high quality grade
HN                KZJ                MCZ                -                Ultra Low ESR
HZ                -                -                -                Lowest ESR of all electrolyte capacitors


What i disagree from that table are:

- Sanyo CA is far worse than Rubyon YXG and Chemicon KY/Nichicon HE
- Should we include Nichicon HN/HM?. They are on badcaps list.
- I would avoid Nichicon VZ, Chemicon KMG, Rubycon YXA, because of their higher ESR. But their quality are better then some LESR Taiwanese Caps. I know some people use some general purpose of japanese caps (like Rainbow ;)) for recaping with no probs. I was once using Chemicon SXE (general purpose) with no success. I have to ask japlytic though, wether he use the SXE for PC board or Audio hardwares.. Probably SXE is good for certain board that fine with higher ESR Caps.
- Panasonic caps should be included in the comparuson due to the popular use of FJ series..

Re: Comparison tables between 5 major Japanese Low ESR capasitors
 
IMO, PM, like PR and PJ are getting near to being near to series end-of-life.

I did a similar exercise with 50V, 16x25 parts and came up with similar groupings, except:

* Group 2 >> HV, KZH, and YXG

* Group 3 >> HE, KY, YXH

* Group X >> KZM, ZLH

The HM, HN, HZ and equivalents don't go high enough in voltage for my purposes, so I didn't look at them very closely.

Re: Comparison tables between 5 major Japanese Low ESR capasitors
 
Sory, long time no updates.. i've got busy :D This thread doesn't get much attention anyway.. so..

@Petes, well, my bad that the performance comparison i made in the last post is wrong, so for the caps with rated voltage of 6.3v - 16v IMO the right grouping is like this:

Code:

Group        Chemicon        Nichicon        Rubycon                Sanyo                Panasonic
----------------------------------------------------------------------
1        LXZ                PW                -                -                FC               
2        KY                HE                YXG                -                -
3        KZH                HV                ZLH                -                -
4        KZE                HD                ZL                WX                -
5        KZG                MBZ                -                WG                -
6        -                -                ZLG                -                FM
7        KZJ                MCZ                -                -                -
8        -                HZ                -                -                -



group 1 < group 2 < group 3 < group 4 < group 5 < group 6 < group 7 < group 8

I am pretty much sure that's the final arrangement.


(We could see some samxon series on group 5 - 8 but samxon caps quality are still under monitoring by some of us.. I guess that will need about 3-4 years :D).


Like you've mentioned, some of the series are being near to their end-of-life. Some series even has been discontinued. But I still see plenty of supply of them, example is the HFQ series from Panny.

The rule of the grouping can be different for voltage range of 25v - 50v like you've mentioned. Some of the manufacturers are pretty consistent in using the 'standard' can size, but some others use widely (odd) variation for the can size, so two series that have similar spec/formula on 6.3v - 10v can be different in spec for 25v-50v range.
