Default where to get RIFA caps in the US?

Where do you buy RIFA (PEH169?) in the USA? There was some guy that started a thread about collaborating when buying stuff from overseas. I need maybe 8 33000 or 47000/75vdc. I want some stock for an aleph2

This thread was inspirational:

A quick Yahoo search returned more sources than you could possibly use. Use as search terms "Rifa" and "Capacitor." The closest source to me is California Capacitor, but there were quite a few others.

SY that's BS!
Find me a website of a place like Newark in which peh169/200 is listed, in stock and with a price. California Capacitor don't have dick.
And I don't want Aerovox, I want RIFA.

You're welcome.

Since you were too lazy to do the search I suggested, I did it for you. The list of Rifa distributors in the US can be found here:

http://www.evoxrifa.com/n_america/distylist.htm

UPE claims to be the exclusive distributor for the e-lytics, though some of the other distributors say they carry them, too. You might have to actually take the energy to dial a telephone to get prices and availability, but all the phone numbers are on that handy little page.

Grataku,

Goto www.findchips.com

Type in PEH169

America II has the following part

PEH169MU547VMU2
63V/47000uF

Harry Krantz has the 68000/63V

I don't know if they make 75V in the 105degree series.

SY,
why don't you read my posts and get a little more informed before dispensing free advices when, quite obviously, you have no clue of what you are talking about?

This is direct quote from the Rifa site, yes I looked at all the sites and distributors before posting, and made some calls too:

Note about screw-terminal electrolytic capacitors
In May 2002 Evox Rifa announced the acquisition of BHC Electrolytics from Aerovox. In N. America Evox Rifa is offering screw-terminal electrolytics from BHC. These are long-life types of excellent quality suitable for power electronics applications. Specifications may be obtained from the BHC website. Evox Rifa also has dedicated resources in place to support BHC products. Feel free to contact us.

good day,
