12 Caution during
A capacitor shall not be touched directly with bare hands during operation in
order to avoid electric shock.
Electric energy held by the capacitor may be discharged through the human
body when touched with a bare hand.
Even when the equipment is off, a capacitor may stay charged. The capacitor
should be handled after being completely discharged using a resistor.
The terminals of a capacitor shall not be short-circuited by any accidental contact
with a conductive object. A capacitor shall not be exposed to a conductive liquid
such as an acid or alkali solution. A conductive object or liquid, such as acid and
alkali, between the terminals may lead to the breakdown of a capacitor due to
Confirm that the environment to which the equipment will be exposed during
transportation and operation meets the specified conditions. Do not to use the
equipment in the following environments.
(1) Environment where a capacitor is spattered with water or oil
(2) Environment where a capacitor is exposed to direct sunlight
(3) Environment where a capacitor is exposed to Ozone, ultraviolet rays or
(4) Environment where a capacitor exposed to corrosive gas(e.g. hydrogen
sulfide, sulfur dioxide, chlorine. ammonia gas etc.)
(5) Environment where a capacitor exposed to vibration or mechanical shock
exceeding the specified limits.
(6) Atmosphere change with causes condensation
