600W Wet capacitor, 55 MFD/300 VAC MIN, for use with older model PowerHouse ballasts (Universal transformers).
- Verify your transformer is a Universal by checking the label before ordering this capacitor. Universal is the manufacturer name.
- For newer model PowerHouse Ballasts (Venture transformers), use BACPSD6.
Capacitors store the power in the event of an increased demand on energy. High-powered drives may experience a need for a capacitor to handle the power they run, which often exceeds that available from the power source.
Hydrofarm capacitors and replacement capacitors are available in a variety of wattages, brands, and types. Choosing a capacitor to best fit your system can be a confusing process. Contact your Hydrofarm sales representative with questions or for assistance shopping for capacitors and replacements, or to ask what best suits your current ballast and grow room setup.
