1500 Watt Metal Halide 32UF 525 Volt (Metal Round)
Aerovox Z74S5232NN/ 32UF 525 Volt, 1500 Watt Metal Halide Capacitor.
Commonly used for replacement for 1500 Watt metal halide fixtures and works with M-48 bulbs with a Constant wattage autotransformer ballast. The case is oval 1.75" x 4.92" tall with a maximum temperature rating of 100oC. This case has a resistor that dissipates charges to less than 50 Volts in 60 seconds when DE energized. This unit has a protective interrupter device to open the circuit at failure or the end of life.
All Aerovox lighting capacitors have resistors, some resistors are internal and others are external.
Capacitors do deteriorate; stop replacing ballast kits if the transformer is good. The average life of an Aerovox capacitor is 60,000 hours, most other brands of capacitors only average 10,000 hours. They can become weak, this is easy to check. See the Meters Section or Video Section on home page.
