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. Please follow this link if you need details about ordering codes of EPCOS products.

Search by Technical 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. Click SHOW RESULTS  to view the details of your search results.

Search by Ordering Code

If you already know the complete EPCOS part number or at least a part of it, this type of search will be the fastest way to find technical product data. 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This search includes information on withdrawn products.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 Cross Reference
