Capacitors

Capacitors are passive devices that are used in almost all electrical circuits for rectification, coupling and tuning. Also known as condensers, a capacitor is simply two electrical conductors separated by an insulating layer called a dielectric. The conductors are usually thin layers of aluminum foil, while the dielectric can be made up of many materials including paper, mylar, polypropylene, ceramic, mica, and even air. Electrolytic capacitors have a dielectric of aluminum oxide which is formed through the application of voltage after the capacitor is assembled. Characteristics of different capacitors are determined by not only the material used for the conductors and dielectric, but also by the thickness and physical spacing of the components.
Capacitor - Vishay BC, 100V, MKT368, Radial Lead
High quality radial capacitors rated at 100V. These MKT368 capacitors are produced by Vishay BC and formerly by Philips. These capacitors are made with metalized polyester film and sealed in epoxy lacquer. Their style and make is similar to the tropical fish capacitors of the 1960s and 70s. Suggested applications include blocking, bypassing, filtering, coupling and energy reservoir applications. Features
