    Big can-type electrolytics: 1800-2200uF, 400-plus wv, screw terminals.
    Limitation is height: 3.5 inch max (not including terminals).

    (OE p/n: Nichicon LNR2G182ASMXMG from old caps).

    Mouser, DigiKey, Allied have nothing. All others I can find are non-stock,
    min order.

    I want 3.

    These are replacements in an inverter. Space is at a premium, and
    re-configuring the chassis and other components is not worth the labor

    How about a Panasonic T-HA snap-in? It isn't as pretty as the screw
    terminals but if you really cared you might make a little PCB to turn
    the solder terminals into screws.

    For example Digi-Key P13224 is [email protected], 80mm high, just a little
    more than 3 inches, and in-stock.

    Look at the CDE web site for your candidates.

    They have an inverter grade (model 520C)

    What is your diameter preference?

    Here is a good candidate:

    520C192T450DB2B -- 450 VDC (500 VDC surge)
    1900 uF 52.6 mohms ESR (max) 9.8 A ripple MAX 3" diameter x 3 1/8"

    Then talk to CDE -- they were selling direct via their web site -- then the
    distributors (Mouser being one) - complained -- so tell CDE you will have to
    buy Far East -- if they can not line up a distributor to place order!

  4. Depends on where you live. Most large cities have "surplus electronics
    stores" where that sort of thing can be found relatively inexpensively. In
    Sacramento, for example, we have HSC Electronics and I'll bet you could find
    half a barrel of what you are looking for there.

    Give a call. Their website sucks but service
    is great.

    Is there a surplus shop near you? I've seen some similar caps at Vetco
    in Bellevue, WA.

    Search around Newark. Surprising how many beer bottle caps they have
    in stock.
  8. Haven't been to the Sacramento store but their other place near San Jose had a
    good selection in October when we were over in the US.

    Don't forget that anything more than a few years old may need reforming or
    bringing up to voltage gently before using.

  9. We have them on eBay under abeja.

  11. Newark was already suggested.

    Try Richardson Electronics

    They supply components to motor drive repair businesses (among many other
    unique applications) so they should be able to handle your request. Give
    them a call or email.
  12. We have lots of similar items on eBay under abeja.

    Typical pricing is one-sixth of distributor cost.
