Default MKC-1862 capacitors

Anybody know where can I find (buy) polycarbonat capacitors ERO MKC1862 10uF/63V or 100V? Many thanks in advance.

In case you don't know, PC is out of production for the most part.

Electronic Concepts is making their own film now and others that offer PC are using up current stock of PC film.

Polycarbonate has been replaced by PPS, but evidently some don't like the difference at high temp.

Roderstein may still have some PC, but it is always very expensive.

The few PC caps in Newark are around $50 or more.

If you must have PC, you could try surplus houses, but they won't have much.

If you are using it for audio, in my opinion metallized is not the way to go.

10uf will probably be at least $100 each. Mark

While checking on how the supply of PC was holding up I found one supplier of MKC on not given, and if you are not a big and verifyable company they may not reply to your RFQ.

Send RFQ
Company Linecard
RH Distributors

* 17332 Von Karman Ave., Ste. 110
* Irvine, CA, 92614
* Headquarters
* (949) 748-5800 Phone
* (714) 464-5490 Fax

There still seems to be a good supply out there and also an excuse to charge many times what it is worth. There may be a new supplier.

Vishay/Roderstein still provides the 1862 data sheet with no supply notice in view. It does say "not for new design."

Also, my Roderstein catalog says the 1822 is MKT1822 which is met polyester.

Here's a company that still make polycarbonate here in the states. Not sure how they respond to individuals, or if they have distributors though.

WIMA also makes a mixed film cap that has a curve similar to PC. They have a page on their website that explains this. It is a PC substitute. Mark
