Default caps available...

Hi,

I have a selection of caps for sale, what are you looking for...

For instance I have 4700u/50v as a snap-in, or 4000u/80v as small screw terminal caps etc

So what do you want, and how many are you interested in?

Stuart

i am interested in some at 100v but at 80v will be just fine
i need something like 60000uf or something like that
The number of caps that i want should divide with 4 if it is possible

Default caps

making 60000u with 4000 caps is possible, but of course you'd need a lot of them...

Are you willing to use 16 or more? perhaps in a 4x4 block?

and is this per rail or in total for both rails?

Default looks like I have...

...about 80 or so, so how many do you want?

I do not seem to have mounting clamps, or screws for the terminals.

Mouser and digikey want between $5 and $20 for caps similar to these sold individually, so are they worth $2.50 in quantity (ie 30+ items) to you?

Default brand...

...not sure, but the caps have the following markings:

Capacitor Technology
FAO 44574 85c
4000mfd 80WVDC
FAO402G080BD1H
8932 460 2129
MADE IN USA

The are approx. 10cm x 4cm.

There is a vent in the top and a pair of screw terminals. Other than the terminals there is no exposed metal, they are completely insulated.

I have tested 8 randomly from the box and found each to be higher in value than the nominal, but within 20%.

I am in the US, but don't mind shipping to europe, basically since you are paying whatever it costs.

HTH
