Motor Run Capacitors for starting and running single phase motors.
Manufactured from self-healing metallised polypropylene film with case in either self-extinguishing plastic resin material or plastic sleeved aluminium.
Electrolytic capacitors are employed in single phase induction motors in order to increase their starting torque.
It is necessary that such starting takes place in a fraction of a second and that once starting has occurred the capacitor is disconnected from the circuit by means of either a starting switch or relay.
The capacitive element is made of aluminium foils treated and separated by a leaf of impregnated paper as the electrolyte.
Cases are moulded in a thermo setting material and terminals are 6.3mm Faston type.
