MMC Cap up in Smoke
Original poster: gary350@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
Are you guys using any special type capacitors?
I built my first MMC capacitor today it lasted a whole 2 seconds then
went up in smoke. My power supply is a 6K 20ma transformer. The
capacitors are .1uf 1500VDC Sprague 430P 227084-43F. I soldered 7
capacitors in series to get 10.5K volt rating. My TC is a tiny
little thing I built 5 years ago it had an oil filled poly cap.
Here is a picture on the
Notice the small TC in the bottom left with a 1.5" diameter 5" tall
secondary with a door knob top load.
