Default Cap Sizing

Another newbie question

Most of the capacitors in the shunty and pumpkin have a range of values that can be used.

In this case - is bigger always better



Like other notable things


I am currently using the values in the middle for most of the caps - should I go bigger??

I'll use the ugliest then - as long as it can play with the F4.

BTW - can the pumpkin be used with the F4?

Default Beauties (Uglies) Contest

Need to ask the Beauties (Uglies) Judges in this thread.

So which of the below Uglies / Beauties will go well with the Pumpkin Carriage?

For the vaunted position of C4, C5.

And the contestants are:

1) Epcos Metallised Polyester - 10uF 100V (Blue like the boards!)

2) Arcotronics Metalliised Polypropylene - 5uF 400V 5% (Yellow!)

3) ASC Metallised Polypropylene 3.3uF 400V 10% (White and radial)

4) Jantzen Cross-cap Metallised Polypropylene 3.3uF 400V (Classy Black)

Cast your votes!

Me cheapie! Me have no money to buy the Mundorf - Silver/Gold/Platinium/Titanium/Uranium caps or the V-Cap teflons!!

ZM,

Am I correct in that, the purpose of C10 in the Shunty is to provide a soft start? If so, I have a few 220uF in the junk box, I guess I can use them right?

Also, I am not sure if you have answered this or not. Any reason why for quite a few caps you used 15mm raster, when 5mm (0.2") raster caps are easily and cheaply available? For instance, for C12 in the shunty, holes for 0.2" could have been provided.

C10 is there for better ripple rejection ; soft start - if any- is just a coincidence

C12 raster - even if Oly is strictly responsible for layout , I can tell you that I also have habit of using axial caps , so raster is more convenient

besides that ......... you can only random expect that my doings have any logical reason ..........
