a 50v .1mF Cap is a 50v .1mF cap?
- Reading up about the difference between the cylinder aluminum electrolytic vs the film type
I have a disk drive power supply with the small type, can I replace with the cylinders? Here is a pic, it's a Cromemco S-100 system "System One" power supply board. The 12V to the disk drives is out. I already replaced the LAS1412 think that was the problem originally, but that did not fix the problem.
(the two orange 105's)
I know is that 105 = 10 with 5 zeros = 100,000 pF = .1 mF.
From what I read, it seems like they're basically the same as long as I get the cylinder cap's polarity in the right direction....I have cylinder caps 50v .1mF, I'd have to order the film type. Is it better to order and use what was there now? It appears that we're going from a 16v LAS1412 voltage regulator through two .1mF caps to the 12V side. There is no 12V so I am currently working with the theory that one of these two caps went bad. I still have more testing to do, but I thought I'd ask. I am only a hobbyist electronics guy, no formal training.
