I have a High Energy brand capacitor that I am using in my
10 kVA Medusa Tesla system and I was hoping someone
may be able to tell me the original application of this unit.
It is part # -CS414/N 545-04 and manufactured April 23, 1984.
This monster consist of (12) identical .0275 uFD, 42 KVDC
pulse caps encapsulated in a single 3" X 5" X 25" long white
poly plastic unit. I've externally bussed it for (2) strings of 6 for a
total value of .0825 uFD -at- 84 KVDC. It only weighs about 12 lbs.
but easily digest 10 kVA with virtually no external warming above
ambient temperature. I was able to contact High Energy about the
cost of another one and it was over --are y'all ready for this-- $1500!
I purchased mine from a fellow Tesla buddy for a mere $95, in-
cluding shipping! I've heard that there may be another one or two
of these out there in surplus and it would be nice to get my hands
on another one!
