These ceramic capacitors are rated for full voltage when operated under oil or encapsulated and can be operated at half their rated voltage in open air.
.01 µfd 40 kv 8 Joules Large Capacitor with Radial Leads, 1.3” OD x 0.55” with heavy #16 radial leads spaced at 0.7” This “beefy” capacitor can be used for many high voltage applications such as potted CR multipliers, Marx Impulse Generators, Shockers and many other high voltage applications requiring low inductance medium/fast high-voltage discharges. This is a real beauty of a brand new capacitor.
When used with our high voltage diodes in combination, allows the simple construction of open air multiplier stacks to obtain very high voltages. Capacitors are epoxy coated with long leads. Internally processed ceramic element with stands moderate current discharges. Easily solderable to printed circuit or vector boards. These parts are all brand new. Often lower price parts may be unused but are old and lost up to 50% or more of their original capacity. For safe charging see our 5kV-35kV High Voltage DC Power Supply.
