AC Motor Run Capacitors accelerate install with locking terminals.

Press Release Summary:

Supplied in rugged, flame-retardant case, QPC Series operates from -25 to +85°C and offers locking push-wire contacts that accelerate installation and eliminate soldering. Users push and lock wire in place, and removal is accomplished by sliding probe tip into release port. Removable slide-lock metal mounting bracket, which can be mounted first, also accelerates assembly. Multiple contacts eliminate need for terminal strips, and standard values include 0.4–10 µF, 250–450 Vac, 50/60Hz.

Original Press Release:

New Motor Run Capacitors with Locking Terminals Speed Install

Exclusive Quick Connect Wire Insertion Sockets That Double As Terminal Blocks

QPC Series AC Motor Run Capacitors are quicker to install and offer more durability and reliability.  Exclusive locking push-wire contacts speed installation, eliminate soldering and save significant installation time, when compared to conventionally terminated devices.  Just push and lock wire in place.  Slide a probe tip into a release port to unlock.  Metal mounting bracket also speeds assembly, as it can be mounted first.  Standard values: 0.4 to 10µF; 250 to 450 VAC, 50/60Hz.  The QPC also features small size, high available voltage and capacitance density.

QPC Series capacitors are recommended for original equipment manufacturer (OEM) AC motor applications.  Several features help to reduce assembly time and cost.  The exclusive locking push-wire contacts eliminate the need to solder connections and available multiple contacts eliminate the need for terminal strips.  Removable slide-lock mounting brackets also speed assembly time, as the bracket can be mounted first.

Operating temperature range is from -25°C to +85°C.  Very rugged, flame-retardant (UL94V-O) case.  UL810, IEC 566-1982, CNS4327, JIS C4908 listed.  OEM pricing starts at $0.35 each.
