Re: Maxwell 31159 cap on eBay

Ben, all,

The Maxwell 31xxx series capacitors are indeed pulse rated but are usually
only rated at 1
pps at their rated voltage. You could probably still use this particualr cap
for Tesla service
but would need to considerably downrate the voltage rating for 100s of pps.
I would not
want to go much over 10 kv with this cap for Tesla service. OTH, the Maxwell
37xxx se-
ries caps are rated for up to 1000 pps.
