Product Search

The search engines enable you to find the suitable component from the comprehensive product range. Depending on the type of search you choose, you'll get different screens in order to specify parameters or enter a product type designation. The search results always include the most important technical parameters for the product, the ordering code and a hyperlink to the appropriate data sheet.

Standardized Notation for Ordering Codes

In technical product information EPCOS ordering codes will be changed to a 15-digit standardized format. Online the changes have already been made. Zeroes are being used after the letter to obtain the required number of digits (Example: B72500T0040M060). Technical product information (PDF files) will successively be adapted to the new notation. Technical product specifications will not be affected.

Search by Product Parameter

After selecting the product group, e.g. Film Capacitors (0 ... 220 µF) you can specify your requirements by selecting different product parameters important for your application. You can reduce the amount of hits shown by choosing more parameters. Each selection triggers off a search automatically in order to update the contents of the drop-down lists. In order to view the details of your search results, please click the Ok-button.
Click the Reset-button to reset all search parameters.

Search by Ordering Code

Using wildcards (*, ?) is permitted, e.g. B45196* or ?45196* etc. Please note that online our ordering codes have changed to 15 digits. An example of this is B59860C80A70 (previous Ordering Code) and accordingly B59860C0080A070 (new notation with 15 digits).
This search includes information on withdrawn products.

Search by X-Reference
