Capacitors are passive devices that are used in almost all electrical circuits for rectification, coupling and tuning. Also known as condensers, a capacitor is simply two electrical conductors separated by an insulating layer called a dielectric. The conductors are usually thin layers of aluminum foil, while the dielectric can be made up of many materials including paper, mylar, polypropylene, ceramic, mica, and even air. Electrolytic capacitors have a dielectric of aluminum oxide which is formed through the application of voltage after the capacitor is assembled. Characteristics of different capacitors are determined by not only the material used for the conductors and dielectric, but also by the thickness and physical spacing of the components.
Capacitor - Vishay BC, Aluminum Electrolytic, 021 ASM Series, Axial Lead
High quality axial-leaded electrolytic capacitors. These 021 ASM series capacitors are produced by Vishay BC, formerly known as Philips / BC. These capacitors have been produced for many years and can be found in a wide variety of music equipment ranging from from vintage amps by Vox and Marshall to classic fuzz pedals such as the Fuzz Face and Tonebender. Suggested applications include general purpose use, industrial, automotive, audio-video, coupling, decoupling, smoothing, filtering, buffering, portable and mobile equipment. Features
