Dielectric Laboratories- Saturday, February 21, 2015

DLI makes capacitors for high frequency applications demanding near perfect, almost lossless devices. Their components use specially developed, proprietary materials tuned to provide optimized high Q, low ESR responses. 

They are the world’s largest supplier of single-layer capacitors, typically used in hybrid and high-frequency modules, offering the broadest range of material and device options.  Our multilayer capacitors include traditional “porcelain” products, as well as highly temperature-stable and extremely low ESR chips and a family of broadband blocks.


Exciting things are happening at Illinois Capacitor! 

It was announced today that Illinois Capacitor Inc., and its affiliates have been acquired by Cornell Dubilier Marketing, Inc. This acquisition brings together two of the leading manufacturers of capacitors for the electronics marketplace. For the foreseeable future, Illinois Capacitor will operate as a separate subsidiary of Cornell Dubilier, and will continue to be headquartered in suburban Chicago. Its Asian headquarters will remain in Hong Kong. 

The two companies have mostly complementary product lines, with some areas of overlap. Illinois Capacitor and its customers will benefit by an expansion of product sales and distribution resources, as well as enhanced engineering and manufacturing capabilities. Cornell Dubilier will gain product breadth with Illinois Capacitor’s extensive board-level product lines, which include aluminum electrolytic, polymer, film; and EDLC (super) capacitors and modules.

Illinois Capacitor President Basil Jacobson said, “We are thrilled to be joining the Cornell Dubilier team. Both companies will be exceptionally well positioned to expand sales through broadening product offerings and sales outlets. At this time, Cornell Dubilier has very strong product distribution in the US, with IC having extensive capabilities in Asia.” Jacobson continued, “In addition, the product line expansion will create opportunities for both brands.”

Both companies are privately held and both have grown up with the electronics industry. Illinois Capacitor traces its history back over 80 years, with Cornell Dubilier’s roots extending over 105 years! There are also many shared values among the two organizations, with very high emphasis on product quality, customer service and delivery. 

Illinois Capacitor Introduces Quick Release Motor Run Capacitor- Tuesday, February 17, 2015


Illinois Capacitor QPC Motor Run Capacitors are quicker to
install and offer the durability and reliability you need.

  • Standard values from 0.4 to 10µF; 250 to 450 VAC, 50/60Hz
  • Operating temperature ranges from -25°C to +85°C
  • Exclusive locking push-wire contacts speed installation and eliminate the need to solder
  • Multiple contact option eliminates the need for terminal strips
  • Fast installation with slide-lock mounting brackets
  • Very rugged, flame-retardant (UL94V-O) case
  • UL810, IEC 566-1982, CNS4327, JIS C4908

Designed for continuous use in motor run applications and for power factor correction.

QPC Series Motor Run Capacitors can save significant installation time when compared to conventionally leaded or terminated devices.  As shown below, just press an 18-20 gauge wire into one of the sockets and it becomes locked in place.  If you need to make a change, slide the tip of a probe or a pin into the adjacent operating hole and the wire can be removed.  The metal mounting bracket also speeds assembly, as it can be mounted first.  Just slide the capacitor onto the bracket and it locks in place.

If you are buying CDE Dipped Mica Capacitors then you may be paying too much!- Thursday, October 16, 2014

SE Capacitor Dipped Mica Capacitors are designed to meet the exacting physical, electrical and environmental requirements of the MIL-C-5 and RS-153 specifications.

Why use Mica in your appplication?


It is well known that natural mica is extremely stable against heat. SE Capacitors are manufactured from selected Indian ruby muscovite mica having optimum electrical characteristics. Silvered mica is made by printing electrodes on mica film with special silver paste. The silvered films are stacked to the desired value interleaved with metal foils for contact. Then the terminals are clamped on to the element. (The terminals are copper clad steel wires finished with a solider coating for good solderability). 

The clamped unit is either dipped under vacuum in epoxy resin and coated with epoxy powder conformally or dipped in phenolic resin and vacuum impregnated with liquid epoxy resin. The envelope thus formed gives high moisture and heat resistance to the unit. This design ensures high reliability and stability.

Sprague-Goodman Part Numbering System- Wednesday, April 23, 2014

The Sprague-Goodman parts are numbered by Dielectric, Form Factor, Cap Code, and Modifications. Take the example of GXA9R000, a plastic capacitor. The part number is divided into four important categories:

GX A 9R0 00
| | | |
Dielectric Form Factor Cap Code Modifications


The advantages and disadvantages of the various dielectrics are detailed above. Use the dropdown menus below to identify which part numbers signify which dielectrics.

Form Factor:

The form factor refers to the physical dimensions of the trimmer cap, as well as the placement of the adjusting screw (Top/Bottom or Side). If only a single digit is written then the capacitor has square dimensions. “8 mm” for example refers to “8x8 mm.”

Cap Code:

The cap code is a three digit number that identifies the capacitance of a capacitor. The first two digits are significant, and the third digit is the number of trailing zeroes. For example, 202 would be 2000 pF. An R indicates a decimal point, so 1R6 = 1.6 pF.


Various modifications that can for example, change the number or positioning of the leads. More information can be provided in the Sprague-Goodman catalogs.
