Jupiter VT Flat Stacked Paper Beeswax Cryo - DISCONTINUED

Jupiter Condenser has applied the same materials and processes used to make their successful HT line of capacitors to make there all-new Flat Stack capacitors, the VT range is rated at 100V and has been specifically designed for loudspeaker crossover use. They feature a reinforced beeswax paper dielectric and (with further improved impregnation techniques) and cased in a non-drip/melt casing and can withstand higher operating temperatures. Available values are 1uF to 15uF. For higher voltage applications see the Flat Stack HT range.

For productions, a computer-controlled wax vacuum impregnation system was engineered and built by Jupiter Condenser, and section processing is based on techniques developed by Western Electric and RCA. This is capable of deep vacuum and high pressure, providing consistent impregnation with more gas and moisture removal. New proprietary measures of strengthening dielectric properties have been developed and employed which yield higher insulation resistance and allow greater operating temperatures. Wax and paper construction yields a very well mechanically damped capacitor, free from electrostatic and mechanical ringing.

The labeled end indicates the outermost foil and should be connected to the lowest impedance path to ground.

They have been replaced by the new VT Aluminium Foil Paper and Wax round capacitors.
