36 Series Motors Capacitor Kit
We have capacitor kits for all 36 series motors from A36 - G36 Mk3.
As there are a number of variations, you must attach a note to your order describing you machine in terms of
- Model and mk version
- If G36 - does it have an optical end of tape system
- 50 hz or 60 hz
- Normal speed (3.75/7.5 ips) or High speed (7.5/15 ips)
- If you are able to read the capacitor values - what are they? eg 3uf for reel motors and 2 + 0.5uf for capstan motor.
- any other information you think relevant
All our AC rated motor capacitors are custom manufactured for us to our specifications. We deal direct with the factory not a middleman who may have bought up an old NOS job lot. We dont use dubious manufactured washing machine or fan capacitors. I usually have them made in batches from 500 – 1000 depending on the MOQ that I can get from the factory. I also 'make' in house odd value ones for other make machines as needed using smaller value high grade non polarized capacitors and encapsulate them into appropriate aluminium cans.
We strictly insist on correct capacity and you will find that capacity is usually within 2% of value. The company we use in Taiwan are ‘old friends’ and we have been doing business since 2005. They understand us and my exacting requirements. and have made millions of capacitors for us and my previous company involved in motor speed drives. Our motor capacitors are rated 250/275VAC.
Here is our range for the 36 series.
- 2 + 0.5uf
- 3 uf
- 3+ 0.5uf
Each kit contains 3 capacitors for the 3 motors. If there is a dual capacitor eg 2 + 0.5uf then you will get what is appropriate.
The price is the same for the kit no matter what the values are.
