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.

Neutrik - New product opticalCON LITE- Tuesday, December 30, 2014

With the new opticalCON LITE, Neutrik offers a cost-effective alternative to opticalCON ADAVANCED, which has proven its robustness in the last 8 years under the most extreme conditions. opticalCON LITE is a semi-rugged fiber optic connection for a wide variety of applications: its lightweight, compact design, robust housing, and high mating cycles provide a safe and cost-effective connection.

opticalCON LITE is compatible with the opticalCON DUO ADVANCED chassis connectors, using a similar push-pull locking mechanism and offering the same IP65 environmental protection. Like opticalCON ADVANCED, opticalCON DUO LITE is based on LC connectors, surrounding the connectors with a compact, rugged plastic housing. The fiber is easily cleaned using industry-standard tools. Employing a novel fiber structure, the cable used with opticalCON LITE is designed to meet the extreme conditions of the entertainment industry. The cable offers excellent bending performance, a compact design and extreme flexibility that far exceed the mechanical strength of conventional patch cables. opticalCON DUO LITE uses the proven opticalCON cable strain relief, adapted specifically to this cable, ensuring a secure connection.

opticalCON DUO LITE is the first product of the new opticalCON LITE series. Its robustness and competitive price make opticalCON DUO LITE a serious and compelling alternative to standard fiber patch cables.

R&J Components takes on the Klein Tools Line- Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Klein Tools was founded in 1857 by an industrious German immigrant, Mathias Klein, who began in the hand tool business when a broken side-cutting pliers was brought to his forge shop by a telegraph lineman. Mathias repaired the pliers by forging and finishing a new half for the tool and riveting it to the old half. Soon the lineman returned because the other original half of the pliers had broken and needed replacement. Mathias forged and finished the second half of the pliers and riveted it to the other replacement half – creating the first complete Klein pliers.

To this day, Klein Tools is proudly owned and managed by the Klein family. Over 150 years of hard work and dedication has earned Klein the reputation of supplying only the finest quality products for users of professional hand tools and occupational protective equipment..

These days, it can be hard to find companies that make products you can count on. But that’s exactly what you’ll get from Klein Tools.

They don’t just make great products, they make great products that stand up to the demands of the professionals who use them everyday. Because their standards are as high as yours, they demand that every one of their hand tools delivers all the performance, durability and precision that you need to get the job done right.
