Electro Technik Industries Acquires Plastic Capacitors, Inc.
December 15, 2014
Clearwater, FL -- Electro Technik Industries (ETI) has acquired Plastic Capacitors, Inc. The company was among the earliest manufacturers to use plastic rather than paper or mica as the dielectric in high voltage capacitors, hence the company name. Today, more than 62 years later, Plastic Capacitors, Inc. has an extensive line of standard-catalog plastic film and paper dielectric capacitors, high voltage
Plastic Capacitors, Inc. is the second capacitor company to be acquired by Electro Technik Industries within the past five years. The first, Arizona Capacitors, Inc. is located in Tucson, AZ. While both companies specialize in the manufacture of wound-film capacitors and related products, the two companies really serve entirely different markets.
Plastic Capacitors, Inc. will be incorporated into ETI's Capacitor/Resistor Group and like all other companies within the group -- Arizona Capacitors, Inc. (capacitors), Custom Suppression, Inc. (filters), Tepro of Florida, Inc. (resistors), the company's products will soon be manufactured in an ISO 9001 registered environment. ETI has made ISO approval and compliance, not only part of the corporate culture, but a “must have” for day-to-day operations.
Electro Technik Industries, Inc. (ETI) Expedites Product Sampling & Purchases for All Subsidiary Companies
October 2, 2014
Clearwater, FL -- Electro Technik Industries (ETI) has enacted a new policy to eliminate delay and reduce administrative costs for sample orders and small quantity product purchases. Its ten subsidiary companies, including Raycom Electronics, Hytronics, I-Tech, Winatic, Tepro, Arizona Capacitors, Custom Suppression, Res-net Microwave, Nova Microwave, and Star Microwave are now accepting payment via major credit cards.
"It's increasingly common that would-be customers have budgets and credit cards to obtain samples and small quantities of products for prototyping and testing. A quick credit card purchase enables us to ship product immediately in many cases, well before a purchase order typically can be prepared, transmitted, received and processed," explains Earl Jones, ETI Controller.
The ETI companies now accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover for such purchases.

Electro Technik Industries Moves to New Plant
March 10, 2012
Clearwater, FL -- Electro Technik Industries, Inc. and some of its subsidiaries have moved into a new facility in Clearwater, Florida. They had previously been located in Largo, Florida about 15 minutes away.
The new building has been totally remodeled over the past 6 months, and is equipped with expanded R&D facilities including clean room and fully outfitted engineering laboratory. The new address is 5410 115 Avenue North, Clearwater, Florida 33760.
Largo, Florida: Electro Technik Industries, Inc. has acquired Inductive Technologies, LLC (I-Tech). I-Tech designs and manufactures all types of magnetics, from current sensing transformers to common mode chokes, for many different kinds of applications. They have been manufacturing both a custom and a standard line of magnetics since its inception in 1998 when it was founded from an acquisition of the Magnetics Division of C&K Components.
Although Electro Technik Industries has been in the magnetics industry for over twenty-five years, this is the first time they have had a standard catalog offering in this product field. Over the years, Inductive Technologies has gained a reputation for producing a quality product in the magnetics industry and ETI is proud to be able to play a role in its future.
Tucson, Arizona: Arizona Capacitors, Inc. recently underwent an upgrade to their ISO certification. Now, we are pleased to report, they are certified to ISO 9001: 2012 by Great Western Registrar. Prior to March of 2010 they were certified to ISO 9001: 2000.
Arizona Capacitors had only been acquired by Electro Technik Industries, Inc. a little over two months ago and it has been a very busy quarter for this Tucson company. However, of all the things that needed to be accomplished in these first few months, the new ISO Registration remained their top priority, and a 100% quality remains their goal.
Largo, Florida: Arizona Capacitors, Inc. and Tepro of Florida, Inc., both subsidiaries of Electro Technik Industries, will be attending the 2010 CARTS this March. The show will be held in New Orleans at the Mariott Hotel from the 15th to the 18th. They will be located at booths #15 and #14, respectively.
Arizona Capacitors is a manufacturer of a wide range of film type capacitors for both the industrial and military markets. They have been building capacitors for over 58 years. They are located in Tucson, Arizona.
Tepro of Florida manufactures power and precision resistors for both commercial and military applications. They have over 50 years experience in the resistive industry. They are located in Largo, Florida.
Tucson, Arizona: Electro Technik Industries, Inc., an electronics manufacturing company based out of Largo, Florida, has acquired Arizona Capacitors and its subsidiaries; West Cap of Arizona, SFE Technologies, and Component Research Company. Arizona Capacitors and West Cap manufacture film capacitors for both the industrial and military markets. Arizona Capacitors builds to MIL-STD-790 and they are ISO 9001:2000 approved. They also design and manufacture a family of electronic filters. These filters can be RF, power line, low pass EMI, as well as feed through capacitor filters.
The capacitors produced at the Tucson facility can be wound on paper, foil, plastic, or metalized film. The main products are dielectrics in polyester, polycarbonate, Teflon, polypropylene, Kraft paper and include many other combinations. The various configurations of the products are epoxy-dipped, wrap and fill, pre-formed, molded, tubular, hermetically sealed, as well as many others.
Arizona Capacitors and/or its subsidiaries have been manufacturing capacitors for more than 57 years. This addition will put a fourth product line under the Electro Technik Industries (ETI) umbrella. ETI’s lines already include resistive, microwave, and magnetics. Now with capacitors, as well as filters, they will be able to fill that void and help customers find the passive components they had been seeking.
Solving Design Problems with Flat Pack Transformers
Magnetic components are often viewed as constraints to power supply innovation. Today, market forces and research are driving power supplies to new levels of efficiency and power density. However, along with all this innovation comes a new level of circuit complexity complete with its own issues of reliability and MTBF.
Thick Film Heaters Go Anywhere
It's a well known fact that passing current through a thick film resistor can transform it into a heating element. Such a phenomenon is a nuisance in thick film hybrid circuits where resistors need to operate at low temperature without long-term degradation to their electrical properties
