capacitor?????

Recommended Posts

i have 8 units of capacitor but im not sure on this capacitor. Need some info about this capacitor. Hope ur reply will good info to me. Below i give more details regarding this capacitor.

sprague the brand
20.0uf +/- 10&
200dc
735p

plz help me. Give me more detail.Thanks

Hi there alkv23

Well, what is it moore to say? The cap is a 20 uF capacitor, probably a El-lyt, but not necessarily so. Any sign of positive or negative connections? Red and/or black connection markings? Red and black conecting wires? Without a pic it's almost impossible to tell moore! :(
I belive you made a typo error
20.0uf +/- 10&<--
Should be % instead

Hi there

Its still hard to tell if it is a electrolytic cap! Can you upload a pair of pics, taken from the ends of the cap, then maybee it's easier to tell. But, sure, it's a 20 uF 200V capacitor!

Im also not very sure about this capacitor. Some people said its electrolytic capacitor but not confirm it. This capacitor use for high voltage power supply. The supply around 120kv. This use for electro beam welder machine. I got attach more pix and waiting for ur reply. Thanks.

Yepp, i belive so too, but i want to see it in the other end first!

I think it is paper and foil. The paper is inpregnated in wax or oil

Maybee, but dont you think it is metallished paper or even metallished polysomething? Polyester? Polycarbonate? Poly???
If it is filled with epoxy in the other end than i will say it is something like that!

But the welder, about 120 KiloVolt, sounds dangerous! I belive the boy dont know what he is talking about!

mr staigen i know wht im said. Its true that this capacitor using for 120kv. Its very high voltage and dengerous. The machine name is Electro Beam Welder and the part that capacitor contain is SR6. Made in England and were have 4 unit of SR6 here. The current also very high. We using 4 unit of step up transformers. If any small mistake in the operation it can kill.

Eight of these 200V caps in series makes 1600V. Maybe only (!) 1500V is used to power an inverter at the primary of a stepup transformer producing 120kV for a CO2 laser or some other kind of beam maker.
These caps carry a very high current. Look at the size of them and the size of the metal beam joining them.

Connecting capacitors in serie may increase the voltage rating but it also increases the ESR and inductance.

Just wanna ask guys now my capacitor is 20.0uf with 200dc, there have total 8 capacitor if i want to use 1 diff capacitor? ist possible? For exp 7 units 20.0uf/200dc capacitor and 1 unit of 15.0uf/200dc. Is this thing can work out? if can or cannot plz give me more info on it. Thanks

The capacitors should all be exactly the same (value, type and manufacturer) to share the voltage equally. A 15uF cap would charge quicker to a higher voltage than the other 20uF caps. It looks like the caps are rated for a very high current, therefore must have a very low ESR.
