Capacitor label with EIA-456
Air conditioner capacitor has quality standards issues by Electronic Industries Association. This standard is EIA-456. When a capacitor have EIA-456 label on it, This mean the capacitor have been tested for 2,000 hours on a 125 percent above it rated voltage and 10°C above it actual rated temperature under Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) method.
For example, ac capacitor that is rated 30/5 MFD 370 VAC with 50°C, will be test at 463 VAC and 60°C for 2, 000 hours under Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) method. A HVAC capacitor that is test under Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) method have failing rated less than .50 percent. Choosing capacitor that meet EIA-456 standards will last longer. All of our capacitors are EIA-456. Give us a call: 239-596-5855
