Default Where Can I get Wima MKP10 4.7 uf in the US?

Hi All,

Wima MKP10 4.7uf

I have searched and can't find these anywhere in the USA.

Anybody have a Radar Lock (source)?

Thanks!

Regards//Keith

Thanks RDL!

I already looked there and to no avail. I need the 4 point 7uf not the .47uf

I called Inter-Technical.com, Wima's direct importer/distributor (1 of 3) in the US and they said these are not being used too much in the US so they may be hard to find. He gave me some contacts to try!

It is not a popular item and many resellers require minimum orders to order it (since they don't keep them in stock). These aren't cheap either! So I would like to find a place that caters to us DIYers

Regards//Keith

Have you searched at www.eem.com ?

Check http://www.pcipci.com/search_products.cfm?action=search and search for MKP10 4.7 . Looks like they have a few pieces.

I have them on my webstore -- the 400V version -- you have to buy a box at a time (84 pieces I think), and they take months to get:

Hi Jeith, I have several 2.2uF Wima MKP 160V DC. Will they do in parallel? (new not used at all)

Hi Jack and Quirck,

Thank you for coming to the rescue! Ultimately, I got a pair of samples from Inter-Technical.com. They sent me the MKP10 4.7uF 250 volt 5% Caps with 27.5 mm lead spacing for use as output caps in my CD player. Not easy to find! Not easy to mount (replacing a small sized electrolytic with 5 mm spacing)! Jack, you only sell the whole box at a time (84 oieces)? I guess these are not mainstream and you don't want to have them sit there on the shelf forever!

I have burned them in for 350 hours and they are going in this week to be auditioned vs the Obbligato Film/Oil Caps with the same values and burned in the same amount of time. (using Panomaniac's Burn in Circuit see "Tripath Input Coupling Cap" thread by DaveT).

I will post results when I have made the decision which I like best, which may also include the audition of the Auricap of the same value too.

Thanks again!

Regards//Keith

I had a similar PIA trying to find 10uf caps.... I bought bunch of vishay mkt1822's from farnell, was actually pretty reasonable costwise.

For WIMAs try http://www.tawelectronics.com. I've used them a few times and they are good to deal with.

The MKP4 4.7/400/10 comes in a box of 23 -- I had the quantity wrong.

I needed them for my Last PAS power supply board --- so got a box from Inter Technical. So I sell what I don't use on my webstore usually 2 at at time. Folks have used them for coupling caps in RIAA and line sections.

If you recall I had some LastPAS boards made up for a group buy about 2 years ago and moved out most of the boards at my cost. The balance I was selling with a small markup. Here's the prototype with a board I burned myself:

Inter Tech has a rep in NJ -- Brothers Electronics -- and they have shipped me other WIMA. They take AX and shipped on my FedEx account.
