Default Capacitors


Anyone know a good online supplier of surplus electrolytic PS caps?

I have tried MECI, and Surplus Sales. I am looking for some alternatives.

Thank you,

Don't know where you're located, or what operating voltage you're ;ooling for, but Austin Electronics, N.Atlanta (770 449 8697) has 5000uF 50V Mallory's for $1 each. They also have numerous others (smaller quantities, higher uF & V) available that generally run $4-$6 each. I think they have a $10 minimum for mail order.

Send a message via ICQ to ThingyNess has some nice largeish computer-grade caps with PC-mount pins for good prices.

They're made by McIntosh, and were originally designed for the amplifiers bearing the same name, I believe.

They have 63V, 15,000uF and 63V, 30,000uF for $3.95 and $5.95 each, I believe.

Default Surplus caps

CGS333U050X5L3PH from same looks like a much better cap if your rails are under 50v.

Talking Thanks!

Thanks Sidney, ThingyNess and HarryHaller, I appreciate the replys.

ThingyNess, I went ahead and ordered the McIntosh caps, 30,000uF 63V (32 of them).

Do you think they will be able to handle 53V rails reliably? Otherwise I can get a lower voltage trannie.

Any recommendations on bridge rectifier diodes for a 1000VA trannie with 37V secondaries?

Thanks again, Digi
