Default Can someone confirm this is a suitable Motor Run Cap please?

Building a TSE and will likely be using an Edcor XPWR131 and a choke (not yet chosen which one).

Obbligato Film Oil 100uF 400V

Thank you.

It should be fine. The picture doesn't match the description so the cap you get may be physically different.

Thank you sir, I think the cap shown is likely to be smaller (looks like 75uf).

SE board arrived today (SSE too but that is for later). Thank you, you have fueled my excitement

The cap arrived and it is large as expected but not unattractive I suspect it will still end up inside the chassis.

Do these motor run caps get hot in operation? If not then placement is purely aesthetic.

Thanks.

No, they do not get hot for this use.
