Default fwiw. The capacitors just came in......

and I might install them before I leave work.

These are the Aevorox caps with the 2 blue wires coming out.

I have electrical cords going to the lights so I just connect one blue wire tothe black wire and the other blue to white right?

Default RE: fwiw. The capacitors just came in......

I have read where guys do it that way but I would check the amp draw and see if it does any good. The diagram shows it before the transformer and ignitor, so I would check it to see. I have finished my box except for the caps and this is what it looks like:





I have installed twist lock receptacles on each end to plug my lights into (in case I need to take my lights off for some reason I won't have to un-wire). I hope my caps get here soon. I am working on putting my lights on the brackets now. I used 3/16" aluminum 1 1/2 inches wide with spacers so I can adjust the lights. I will post a picture of them later.

Thats how mine would work. Power going through the capacitor first, then the transformer and ignitorthen onto the light.

You are correct! I had a brain fart thinking that you had taken the transformer and ignitors out of the lights:banghead:banghead I am going tonight with the metal halides and hope for the best.....

Yes that is correct. That puts the Cap in parallel with the circuit.



What does that box measure BBB?

One of the pictures from previous post showed the capacitors andtransformers in a plastic tool box mounted on a yellow board. Will the caps and transformers generate to much heat to possibly cause a problem in the plastic tool box?

The guy said after a whole night of bowfishing the heat inside the box was minimal.

Here ishow I have my capacitors mounted for the time being. After I mounted them and hooked them up, I turned on all 5 lights and the Honda 2000 had no problems running them. I'll go ahead and add my 6th light this weekend.

Also I gained a little over an extra hour of run time on a tank of gas by going to these lights with capacitors.



A couple of pics from last night.

Question about taking the pix's?



Did you cover the flash from the camera?

I have a Nikon D50 and use a custom setting. 1600 ISO and a medium to slow shutter speed. But yes, on the custom setting, I leave the flash off.

Dang! That's a lot of camera to take around saltwater.



I just use a cheap Kodiak C613 point and shoot.
