PSU capacitors for Aleph
 
Hi I need help chousing what type of capacitor to buy. Since I 'am gona buy this once and spend I reasonable amount of money I thought better to ask some of you experienced what to use.
I need them for AlephX ( +/-18V ),Aleph30 ( +/-24V ) and mini Aleph ( +/-18V ).

So this is what I can get and the price for them:
( from farnell (http://uk.farnell.com ) and rscomponents ( rswww.com ) )

This two I can get in Croatia :

RIFA PEH 200 22000/25V PEH200HC5220MB2
http://rswww.com/cgi-bin/bv/rswww/se...ukie&Nr=avl:uk

ESR 17mOhm I=15.2A ( 85* )

Price for 25 peaces of them would be 490Euro

or

Vishay BC components 22000/40V ( 051/053 PHR ST )
http://uk.farnell.com/jsp/endecaSear...=1166600&N=401

ESR 39mOhm I=5.8A ( 85* )

Which I can get for 12.5 Euro/peace = 22 peaces = 275 Euro


Or, I can order from U.K.


Epcos 47000/40V ( B 41 456 / B 41 458 )
http://uk.farnell.com/jsp/endecaSear...=3878090&N=401
ESR 12mOhm I=13A ( 85* )
Would need 16 of them and the price would come out around 30 Euro / peace
Total 480Euro

Vishay BC components 47000/40V ( 101/102 PHR ST )
http://uk.farnell.com/jsp/endecaSear...=8820740&N=401
ESR 12mOhm I=14.6A ( 85* )
Would need 16 of them and the price would come out around 30 Euro / peace
Total 480Euro

Or I could use 22000/40V and would nead 20-22 of them and the price would be the sime as for 16 of 47000uF...

Epcos 22000/40V ( B 41 456 / B 41 458 )
http://uk.farnell.com/jsp/endecaSear...=4704680&N=401
ESR 20mOhm I=9.6A ( 85* )

Vishay BC components 22000/40V ( 101/102 PHR ST )
http://uk.farnell.com/jsp/endecaSear...=8820740&N=401
ESR 20mOhm I=9.4A ( 85* )


So any advice what would you chouse in my place ?
Would you go for Epcos, BC, or Rifa ?
Rifa is near power voltage 24V / 25V - but I believe it can take it, I like the idea of Rife since I would not have to bother with custom, or anything...just order...and wait ( or I could order from U.K. and pay something less )
but if Epcos or BC is better capacitor at the sime price ?

Thanks

The Vishay and Rifa are better. Have you looked on ebay? Thats a lot of money for caps.

I have look couple days ago, but didn't find anything...will try again.

The shiping and custom pump up the price :-(

Rifa on rswww are around 11Euro ( 13 with VAT ) but if I order from their representative in Croatia the sime capacitor cost me 25Euro ( with VAT )...:-(

If you are building the last word in psu's you want RIFA's, no doubt:) I had loads of RIFA's from this guy at cheap prices:
http://www.svalander.se/shoppen/lytar.htm
The Rifa's are exceptionally good electrolytics.

Steen:cool:

BTW I am sorry to see that there is only a few left:bawling:

steenoe 15th July 2006 03:39 PM

On a second thought the PHE169 15.000uF's are pretty nice at that price:) 30 pcs left!
Steen:cool:

On a third thought there is even more nice components available:)

whats the price in Euro ?

yoke 15th July 2006 03:48 PM

I found english version, but information is not the sime as on svenska ... will send him a e.mail

steenoe 15th July 2006 03:50 PM

Do a conversion on http://www.xe.com/ucc/ from Swedish kroner to Euro's.
The Rifa's at Svalanders are so cheap that you wouldnt believe it! Compare the price to Rifa's listed price
;)

Many famous brands stunningly cheap in some area. . .
Quality marginally different, tho. . .
