Motor Start Capacitors


BMI's type 091A and 092A AC Motor Start units are non-polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors designed for intermittent AC duty. These capacitors

are used in starting fractional  horsepower, singlephase electric motors, as well as in gear motor applications. The capacitors are housed in rugged plastic cases, which require no added insulation. Optional metal case is available. Mounting hardware, end caps and brackets are available to facilitate mounting. Units can be supplied with bleeder resistors and lead wires if required.
