AC electrolytic starting capcitors are designed for intermittent duty on single-phase capacitor start AC motors. Will operate properly up to 20 starts of threee-second duration per hour at no more than 66 Hz. Meet "EIA" RS-463- Type 2 standards. Round cases are moisture resistand molded plastic. Dual type terminals for quick connect or solder connections. Individually packaged.
Vertical mounting of the capacitor with the terminals up is recommended. However, horizontal mounting is acceptable providing the vent is located in the up position. Vertical mounting with the terminals down is not recommended because the capacitor life may be reduced and the operation of the pressure relief vent impaired.
Because the watt–second value of these capacitors is high, precautions should be taken during the testing of these devices. Discharge resistors should be specified when there is a possibility of a residual charge left on the capacitor or to protect contacts. Mis–application, such as exceeding design limits or applying continuous AC voltage, may result in destruction or explosion of capacitors.
