  • Table and Sweep Capacitors

    I ordered a few capacitors for spares after changing some out on Friday.

    Opened up the box yesterday and they had some funky spade to screw adapters.

    I will not put these on my machines....and it would be prudent not to use these type of connections.

    The connections need to be the screw type where the connection is secure.

    I know it looks a little strange but try it. You should like it.

    What is the second biggest issue with motor caps? The screws come loose and arc at the terminal.

    These caps change the strain placement and stay put.

    Just my opinion…..

      Jerry: send them to me I'll try them.

      I get my caps from Grainger and they have male spades instead of female screw holes. Basically I have to change the terminals to 1/4 female spades which are actually much faster to change if the cap goes bad.

      MikeM is correct about the strain. But it also goes for the ones I'm using. If I loose a cap the problem is usually the connection.

        Did you convert all your pit motors to the screw type?

            The B.E capacitors are subject to greater shock loads then the combo's and they work fine. Your like me when I first saw one. I hated them because they were different. Problem is, I still hate them. I don't know why, but I do.

                This is really JJ, go to the nearest bridge, climb the railing and jump.

                I also have some ocean front property in Arizona that's hot right now.

                  I don't think it matters which terminal connection you use. They both work.

                  I would take the $30 a machine your planning to spend and by a Rayteck infrared thermometer with lazer spotting for $100 or buy Amp meters for your combo motors and mount them at the rear control panel.
