Default where to buy largish caps in UK

Hi,

Where in the UK can i get some (4) 100V 27000uF-39000uF screw terminal electrolytic caps?
Farnell and RS dont have any suitable parts, tried digikey and found snap in style at 27000uf.. but doesnt quite fit the bill.

There must be somewhere?

Ebay.

There's lots of new stuff available, including Epcos Sikorel caps. Typically much cheaper than the usual suppliers.

Hi,

Farnell do stock a 100 Vdc 27000F screw terminal cap, here http://uk.farnell.com/2036745/passiv...questid=123485 the only problem is you'll have to pay 16 handling as it's shipped from the US. But having tried a fair few of the UK parts suppliers I can think of I've not seen any others I'm afraid. Hope this is of some help.

Regards,
Ewan

Thanks for replies, yea i check Ebay occasionally and havent seen anything yet. Ill keep my eyes open though.
Thanks Ewan i was looking at the same ones on Farnell, as you said theres a handling fee and they're out of stock with no estimate for restock so i wonder if they're discontinued.

Default High value caps

Hi Craig405,
I have in hand some of the caps you mentioned here.
Let me know if you are interested. Send me a private e-mail.
Meanwhile, I'll check my drawers what I have, because it's been long I kept it and never needed to use it.

Cheers.......Raj.

would paralleling 10mF or 15mF do the job as well?
might be easier to find @ 100V rating.

Raj, thankyou for the kind offer, ill keep it in mind .
Out of interest what are the caps? and how old are they? (im replacing old caps with new so i want a good life cycle from them!)

AndrewT, yea i would do that if i had a bit more space in the chassis, its pretty tight and there's only space for 2 big caps :/. Thanks for the suggestion though.
