Default Re: Replacement Chemicon SMG caps

You will probably alright using them ( this would not be my first choice but might be a third choice but it cost that drive my choice ) my first choice is United Chemi-Con KY / KZE / LXZ or second choice FR / FC ( size diameter and height make this choice for me sometime ) I find that this brand of capacitor are higher in cost. The smaller UF under 100 UF value of capacitor I buy a hundred of them at a time

Sometimes it what device I am working on and what brand of capacitor are already installed sometimes make that decision for me if I can still find that series or not

Some Servo motor controller can be pick-e what type of capacitor that is used
9 PC LCD Monitor
6 LCD Flat Screen TV
30 Desk Top Switching Power Supply
10 Battery Charger Switching Power Supply for Power Tool
6 18v Lithium Battery Power Boards for Tool Battery Packs
1 XBox 360 Switching Power Supply and M Board
25 Servo Drives 220/460 3 Phase
6 De-soldering Station Switching Power Supply 1 Power Supply
1 Dell Mother Board
15 Computer Power Supply
1 HP Printer Supply & Control Board * lighting finished it *

These two repairs where found with a ESR meter...> Temp at 50*F then at 90*F the ESR reading more than 10%

1 Over Head Crane Current Sensing Board ( VFD Failure Five Years Later )
2 Hem Saw Computer Stack Board

All of these had CAPs POOF
