Metalized Polyester Film DME Orange Drops

630Vdc rated metallized polyester film capacitors dipped in orange epoxy like the old Sprague orange drops. Made by ETR, a world-renowned producer of film capacitors with production facilities that are ISO9001 & 14000 certified. ETR film capacitors are 100% RoHS compliant and approved by UL and VDE. ETR is an OEM supplier with major customers such as CDE (Cornell-Dubilier), Sony, National, Canon, APC, LG, LEO, Bosch, B&D, Askey and HP. Large range of values available from 0.1uF to 1uF.

These capacitors would suit constructors on a budget or those who wish to experiment with lower-cost capacitors before upgrading. They offer a good all round sound and are highly regarded components.
