How to connect capacitors?
In the field of high-quality car audio power capacitors have long occupied the honorary status of an integral and important accessory designed for a powerful sound system. In addition to improving the characteristics of sound, capacitors also allow you to facilitate the work of the battery, with the so-called "cold start the engine."
How to connect a capacitor, is written below. Just keep in mind that it is better to use a capacitor equipped with a voltmeter. And in order for it to display the voltage, you need to take (from the radio tape recorder) another "+" contact.
How to connect a capacitor to an amplifier?
The capacitor is always connected to the system in parallel with the amplifier. This device is needed as an additional source of energy, through which the amplifier is able to quickly receive energy when such a need arises (for example, when playing low bass). A very convenient diagram of how to properly connect a capacitor is presented on the page:.
The electrical theory of connecting a capacitor is that when an attempt is made to use an amplifier to draw more current, not only the battery will “respond” too slowly, but the voltage at the amplifier will be slightly lower than the battery. This phenomenon is called the linear fall. A capacitor installed near the amplifier and having the same voltage as the battery will tend to stabilize the degree of voltage at the amplifier by applying current to it.
How to connect a capacitor to the engine?
- Carefully read the engine. If it has six pins with jumpers, remember how they are installed. In the case when the engine only six conclusions (without pads), it is better to collect them in two bunches. One bundle - will contain the beginning of the windings, and the second - the ends.
- In the case when the motor has only three leads, it is necessary to disassemble the motor: remove the cover from the side of the pad and find the connection of these three wires in the existing windings. Then disconnect the wires from each other and solder to them the tips of lead wires. Then combine all the wiring in a bundle.Further, these six wires will be connected according to the "triangle" scheme.
- Calculate the approximate capacitance of the capacitor according to the formula: Smff = P / 10. And Р - is the nominal power (in watts), and Cmkf - displays the capacity of one capacitor in microfarads. Note: the operating voltage of the capacitor must correspond to a high value.
- When connecting volt capacitors in a consistent way, there is a "loss" of half the capacitance, as the voltage doubles. A pair of such capacitors and forms a battery of the desired capacity.
