Arizona Capacitors uses the finest capacitor grade kraft paper and/or polyester,combined with the purest impregnating fluids, this ensures outstanding performance and long life.

Case is an electro-tin plated brass tube with glass to metal compression endseals soft solder to the ends to ensure a complete hermetic seal.

The standard capacitance tolerance is ± 10%, additional tolerances are available.

Less than 1.0% when measured at 120 Hz using a GR 1658 or equivalent.

The product of insulation resistance in megohms and the capacitance in microfarads shall be 6000 megohm-microfarads minimum. However, I.R. need not exceed 18000 megohms.

Rated for 200 to 600 VDC up to 480 V 60 Hz.

OPERATING TEMPERATURE RANGE -55 to 85°C at full rated voltage

Leads are solid oxygen free copper, coated with 60/40 solder.
