Default Caution - InterAv "Spike Guard" Capacitor

"MikeremlaP" wrote in message

While a firewall isn't as severe a heat location as a front baffle, our

firewall still gets fairly hot after a few hours of flying. Don't know if
the electrolyte drying out is a function of boiling point or long term
evaporation. Sounds like further investigation is

While I've no idea what the specs are for this particular, large
electrolytic capacitors are used in automotive designs. The example in this
reference: http://images.powerelectronics.com/f...rolyticCap.pdf
discusses estimating the life of an electrolytic capacitor operating at 85
degrees C. Caps can operate at these temperature levels, just depends on
the specific one.
