Default Help Identifying Component: Pic Added

Hi,

I would like to get help identifying the component as in the picture, is it a capacitor, TVS, VDR or anything else?

I couldnt find anything on Google besides one link http://legoespanol.iespana.es/articulos/motor.htm, see picture 5 & 6. Though the author wrote capacitor I can't recognize that as a capacitor...

The component is from a barlast for a fluorescent tube lamp.

Cheers Michael

Looks to me like a standard ceramic capacitor, however I miss the capacity rating.

Why do you think it isn't a capacitor?

With kind regards, Hannes

Friday it is !

It looks like a cap, but its connected like a some kind of polyswtich/polyfuse and its marked really alike as one, 60V and 250mA rating I presume.

P.S. Those Lego motors are really impressive!
