This kit is intended as an easy way to mount new radial electrolytic capacitors when replacing 1 inch diameter multi section can capacitors with 1.5 inch mounting hole spacing CTC. This design was modeled after an Astron A-25-65 can. These were often used in vintage radio equipment.

Up to three different caps can be installed, and they all share a common lead located in the center. The center common lead has a trace connecting it to one of the mounting holes, making it convenient to tie to chassis ground; if you need to isolate this board from chassis ground, take a look at our insulation kit. The spacer board sits between the new caps and mounting board and adds clearance between the turrets and cans of the caps. Four turrets provide a robust post for wires and other components to attach to when installing.

If you use a positive-common configuration, be wary that the cans of electrolytic caps are often tied to the negative lead (cathode), but not always. Thus, voltages may exist between the cans depending on the circuit, so space them apart as needed.

Based on IPC-2221B guidelines, this board is not to be used in circuits that may see peak voltages above 450 V assuming a typical negative-common configuration.
