Our capacitors are used by industry-leading U.S. and international manufacturers. Our strong market share speaks to our product’s long-term, proven reliability.

Aerovox Corp., a worldwide market leader in defibrillator film capacitors, has shipped over 1.25 million capacitors for external defibrillator applications with zero reported field failures. Aerovox’s defibrillator capacitors are designed specifically to meet the reliability demands of a Class III medical device.

All Aerovox defibrillator capacitors are manufactured in its state-of-the-art facility in New Bedford, Massachusetts under an ISO 9001-certified quality management system. They are 100% tested prior to shipment, and test data is retained for five years for complete traceability. Each capacitor is identified with a unique barcoded serial number.

Aerovox continuously invests in R&D to keep pace with industry demands for smaller and lighter external defibrillators. Recently, low profile flat designs with a 30% increase in energy density and reduced charge time have been introduced. Additionally, Aerovox has improved humidity and moisture resistance characteristics for dry capacitors.

“Our capacitors are used by many industry-leading U.S. and international manufacturers,” said Jim Faughnan, Aerovox President & CEO. “Our strong market share speaks to our product’s long-term, proven reliability. Our technology roadmap will continue to drive product enhancements to support industry trends without sacrificing performance or life.”
