RE: NEW? CDE caps

Original poster: "Jim Mora" <jmora@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Hi Terry, et al,

I have around 150 of the old style CDE's .15uf in two full boxes. My present
8" works fine with a Hodge Padge of Panasonic, CDE's, and a couple of
Maxwells. They are arranged so that the current to the banks is not a mile

I would like to buy 50-100 of the old style CDE's so all things are equal in
my new 12.5" coil. This will be my last disruptive coil with a fair amount
of effort and $. Soon I will be going out to the Primadonna at State Line
Nevada to coat the coil form.

It would be nice to find a vintage crop of about (100) 942c20p15k (do they
have a new run number?).

My plan will be to run 15x5 banks per layer @ 24KV peak. Is that enough per
string do you suppose to hold off that voltage (double is good)?

This will be the DC power three phase with bio/diesel power on a trailer.
Building the generator has been a pain. I have three now :-) (2 are single
phase diesels) good for the "BIG ONE".

I would love to have one or two of Dr. R's single end Maxwell's. But I think
the CDE's will do the job with the advantage of easy reconfiguration.

Healthy Streamers,
Jim Mora
Ojai, Ca.

The "new" caps are fine.  They changed the specs
too from the old but all for the better.  They
are using a better polymer now so the temp specs
are higher and they wind them a bit better so the
size is smaller.  Poly caps are still evolving so
they change a bit now and then, but nothing to
worry about.  They are or will go lead free soon
and that will raise the price about 10%.
