GEC Electric Motor 256/180

RE: GEC Electric Motor 256/180

(Cap size in microfarad) = {(ENERGY in joules) / [(0.5) * (Volt) * (Volt)]} * 10^6

For Start Cap, use START ENERGY (Start caps are generally somewhere between 50 and 150 uF)
For Run Cap, use RUN ENERGY (Run caps are generally somewhere between 5 and 100 uF)

Converting energy to motion for more than half a century
