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

2017-07-25 00:24:36 UTC  

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?

2017-07-25 01:20:17 UTC  

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

2017-07-25 02:23:45 UTC  

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.

2017-07-25 02:46:49 UTC  

But the actual swelling. Pressure? Temp change?

@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

this is arc damage on a 100A main breaker.

2017-07-25 04:59:29 UTC  

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

2017-07-25 05:00:55 UTC  

Still carry scissors and a punch tool? @Infineon

2017-07-25 05:06:40 UTC  

Always. Plus crimpers and a toner.

2017-07-25 05:07:58 UTC

2017-07-25 05:08:03 UTC  

Always a fun time.

2017-07-25 05:13:28 UTC  

@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

2017-07-25 05:15:30 UTC  

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

2017-07-25 05:15:33 UTC

2017-07-25 05:16:11 UTC  

That will read thru mag shields?

2017-07-25 05:16:39 UTC  

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

2017-07-25 05:16:48 UTC  

Holy shit

2017-07-25 05:16:54 UTC  

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

2017-07-25 05:17:05 UTC  

Please shoot me the model info

2017-07-25 05:17:57 UTC  

I have the older model of this one.

2017-07-25 05:18:31 UTC  

Has RJ45 and RG6 barrel connectors

2017-07-25 05:18:34 UTC  

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

2017-07-25 05:18:50 UTC  

Will even test the line too.
