Anyone have an idea of where to get that capacitor shown? Marcon is the manuf.
My choice in N.A. is DigiKey.
There should be quite a few selections on their site.
If you notice, there is a black bar at one end, this is the ground or chassis connection end.
Looks like it may be a suppression cap.
0,1 uF 500V are pretty readily available .... a polypropylene would e the style today
Interesting assembly. What is it?
It's the base assembly for an Olympus phase contrast microscope. It was impressive when the capacitor let the smoke out of it. Scared the guy using the scope pretty good.
That capacitor type doesn't look particularly new to me. If you have a clear idea of its use, application, applied voltage, etc. there probably is a more reliable part to use.
