Default Morgan Jones Kapacitors

I contacted Suppression Devices and they make two types of the Morgan Jones (Kelvin connection) Kapacitor, 4-lead and 10-lead versions, both available in 10uF only. Does anyone know what the 10-lead version would be used for? Parralelling maybe? I didn't see them referenced in his new book.

I'm the proud owner of one of the ten legged monsters. The idea is to be able to have one set of input leads and multiple sets of output leads to feed more than one stage, each with its own dedicated set of leads.

Mine was free. Suppression can give you quotes- they're apparently not very expensive, 10 or 15 pounds.

I can see the advantage of using less space, and money
but optimally, shouldn't each output have its own cap ?

Yes, as long as they're each Kelvin connection caps. But lots of circuits don't need that so a single Kelvin cap will do. After all, not all ten leads need be used...

4 leads is universal. 10 leads is for feeding four circuits, a fairly common situation (e.g., two stage amplification, two channels).

Would you be able to make a crude drawing of what that looks like? My simple caveman brain is frightened and confused by such modern concepts.
