jb RC Unit X2 Film Capacitors, Parallel Connection

We jb Capacitors can offer both insulated lead, and jb standard CP wire lead for RC unit X2 film capacitors.

jb Capacitors is ISO 9001:2008 certificated professional manufacturer for full range of Film Capacitors and standard SMD electrolytic capacitors.

jb Coupling Capacitors in Series and Parallel

In theory, capacitors can be coupled both in series and parallel. If you need a 100MF cap and have two at 50MF, you can connect them in parallel, and that will give you 100MF (and same voltage rating as each). If you couple them in series, you get half the capacitance, and double voltage rating. But coupling electrolytic capacitors in series to get higher voltage rating must generally be discouraged. For this to work, you must be sure that the two (or more) caps share the voltage load properly; a resistor network can augment this, but if leakage currents are markedly different or the capacitors age differently, you are looking at a potential disaster, so do this only as a last resort, if at all.
