Le Clanché Signal Path Tin Foil Polypropylene Capacitors

Le Clanché Signal Path Tin Foil Polypropylene Capacitors

Presenting the KPS 63 metallised polypropylene, tin foil signal capacitors from Le Clanche (Switzerland). The SignalPath range combines special heat-flattened winding techniques with a polypropylene-tin foil construction to give an exceptional audio performance, specifically designed for signal use.  The KPS 63 series offers incredible audio performance at an affordable price.

Using a specially developed winding technique the wind has is a cleaner start at the beginning of the winding process. The films are better aligned, allowing for wrinkle-free winding from beginning to end. This results in improved, homogenous electrical characteristics of the capacitors. This is further improved by flattening the capacitors into an oval shape on a hot press. This gives better tan-d values that increase the life of the capacitor, and, of course, a lower physical profile, ideal for space-limited applications, and more resilient to applications where vibration is an issue.
