How do you convert a single capacitor to a dual capacitor?
Can I use two capacitors instead of one? You often can achieve higher ripple current rating and lower ESR by using multiple capacitors in parallel rather than a single cap of the same total capacitance and voltage rating. Improving these ratings translates to longer lifetime. The cost is likely to be a bit higher using multiple caps, but not always.
What is the difference between a single and dual capacitor? Single vs.
A single unit run capacitor hooks up to a single motor, and it is more commonly used in smaller HVAC systems, like small air conditioners. A dual run capacitor incorporates two capacitors into a single unit. With a dual run capacitor, you can power two electric motors.
What is the purpose of a dual capacitor? A dual run capacitor supports two electric motors, with both a fan motor and a compressor motor. It saves space by combining two physical capacitors into one case. The dual capacitor has three terminals, labeled C for common, FAN, and HERM for hermetically-sealed compressor.
