I carry turbo capacitors. You may find the versatility helpful in the field @Deleted User

Gregs right an $18-$60 part installed averages $400-$450 installed out here

Lebens 2017-07-25 00:24:36  

Well heres half the install of today. The customer asked if we could come back tomorrow so they could have family time

What causes the capacitor to swell?

Lebens 2017-07-25 01:20:17  

Age and demand. When a compressor sits for 9 months without use the oil in the refrigerant sludges to the bottom. Then you hope to turn the system on. The mechanical side tries to move, but the electrical side doesnt know that the mechanical side is struggling so it tries hard and dies

Deleted User 2017-07-25 02:23:45  

Exactly. One thing you have to remember is electricity is a very powerful thing. Many times when a component fails there will be physical damage that you will be able to see on many of the components. Burns, discoloration, melting, etc.

Deleted User 2017-07-25 02:46:49  

But the actual swelling. Pressure? Temp change?

Lebens 2017-07-25 03:51:21  

@William Kenney – MD a capacitor stores static electric energy in a dialectric space... literally lighting in a bottle. When and electric motor is mechanically locked the electrical system will generate more, without ampacity monitors devices will literally overheat. See the by prodruct of electricity is heat. Our NEC is technically NFPA volume 70. The national electric code is written by the national fire protection agency

Lebens 2017-07-25 03:53:27  

this is arc damage on a 100A main breaker.

Infineon 2017-07-25 04:59:29  

Any low voltage questions, I know a bit. I started out as a low voltage tech in my current company.

Lebens 2017-07-25 05:00:55  

Still carry scissors and a punch tool? @Infineon

Infineon 2017-07-25 05:06:40  

Always. Plus crimpers and a toner.

Infineon 2017-07-25 05:07:58

Infineon 2017-07-25 05:08:03  

Always a fun time.

Lebens 2017-07-25 05:13:28  

@Infineon dressing racks is so tedious. BTW have they made a toner that reads thru mag shields yet? I had a hospital contract years ago where a guy cut the labels off in the server room on cat6a with mag shields.... fml that was ridiculous to ID

Infineon 2017-07-25 05:15:30  

Digital toners will. I use a pretty cheap toner from Fluke that will tone through anything. (Cheap by Fluke standards, at least)

Infineon 2017-07-25 05:15:33

Lebens 2017-07-25 05:16:11  

That will read thru mag shields?

Infineon 2017-07-25 05:16:39  

Yeah, I've even had it pick up through metal conduit and from behind 4 inches of concrete.

Lebens 2017-07-25 05:16:48  

Holy shit

Infineon 2017-07-25 05:16:54  

I've yet to find a place that won't pick up a wire.

Lebens 2017-07-25 05:17:05  

Please shoot me the model info

Infineon 2017-07-25 05:17:57  

I have the older model of this one.

Infineon 2017-07-25 05:18:31  

Has RJ45 and RG6 barrel connectors

Lebens 2017-07-25 05:18:34  

Well i know the toner im buying next time someone wants a needle in a server room haystack found

Infineon 2017-07-25 05:18:50  

Will even test the line too.
