Re: Replacement caps for DC 505A


 

Dave,

How close are the mechanical tolerances? The highest values for each voltage range (e.g. 6800 uF @ 16 V) is only 21mm in diameter. Would that still fit in the space?

Otherwise, my (relatively ignorant) understanding is that 4700 uF is today's equivalent to 5000 uF from the 1970s. Also, you are not designing this to be manufactured in bulk. If you order several more caps than you need you can select for highest capacitance, and not have to worry that the parts might be 20% below spec. You might get lucky and get a couple of parts that are 10% above spec.
