The “MACP” capacitor is representative of Hammarlund’s efforts to meet the demand for smaller dependable components. It is a scaled-down version of the popular “APC” with everything reduced except the quality and performance characteristics. For example, an “MAPC” is about half the size and weight of an “APC.” Lower minimum capacities and low inductance make the “MAPC” suitable for VHF use.
The standard “APC” construction is used in this capacitor. Rotors and stators are fabricated by soldering brass plates to supporting members and nickel-plating the assemblies. Nickel-plated phosphor bronze wiper assures positive rotor contact. Tapped brass mounting studs fastened to silicone treated steatite base permit mounting capacitor without grounding rotor.
Straight line capacity. Available either with screwdriver or socket wrench adjustment or with 7/16″ extended shaft for knob control or shaft coupling. “MAPC-C” Lock Type now also available through distributors. Air Gap is 0.0135″ nominal. Tested at 600 V. R.M.S., 60 hertz.
Optional Base type depicted is not available through distributors. Inquires from manufacturers for this and other modifications should be directed to our sales and engineering headquarters.
