Plastic Capacitors & More
Plastic Capacitors, Inc. (PCI) offers experience, innovation and small business customer care for defense, industrial and commercial applications.
PCI, a subsidiary of Electro Technik, Inc. (ETI), has a long history of product reliability, with a steady record of expansion and research. All of our products are made with pride in the U.S.A.
Experience & Innovation
For over 60 years we have continued to innovate and provide a wide variety of high quality products to meet the needs of our customers.
We took our name from the fact that we were one of the earliest companies to use plastic, rather than paper or mica, as the dielectric in a high voltage capacitor. We are experienced innovators.
PCI product lines are a combination of standard, off-the-shelf, and Custom High Voltage products. We manufacture a wide variety of capacitors, including:
- Plastic capacitors
- Oil-Filled capacitors
- Power capacitors
- Phenolic capacitors
- High Voltage capacitors
- Standard Plastic Film capacitors
- Paper Dielectric capacitors
- DC Filter capacitors
- Limited Discharge capacitors
A capacitor is an electromechanical device capable of storing electrical energy (electrons). A capacitor can function in a circuit like a battery, a resistor or an inductor. It can also absorb energy, turning some into heat (i.e., a filter capacitor).
We manufacture standard capacitors and custom capacitors, guaranteed meet the needs of your specific application. Some applications include:
- Power Supplies
We will meet your needs with personal attention. We can provide:
- Glass Tubular capacitors
- Phenolic Tubular capacitors
- Phenolic Rectangular capacitors
PCI is your innovative capacitor source for standard and custom capacitors. Our engineering team is ready to meet your needs.
Additional PCI Products
PCI has an extensive line of products. We manufacture a wide variety of standard and customized products including:
Our thousands of catalog items and variations are complimented by decades of custom design experience.
- Pulse-Forming Networks (PFNs)
PFNs, used in radar systems, deliver a shaped pulse of energy at a high level of intensity.
- Power Supplies
PCI manufactures a standard series of AC to high voltage DC power packs, referred to as "brute force" power supplies.
- Special Power Supplies
Our engineering staff is here to consult with you, to design and manufacture a solution to your specific application.
- High Voltage Transformers
We manufacture our own transformers for the power packs that we supply. Custom high voltage transformers for electronic applications are also available.
- Military Products
Our products are industrial equivalents to Qualified Products Lists (QPL) items and, in many cases, are considerably smaller than their counterparts. NONE of our devices are registered to QPL.
- Corona Suppression Devices
The corona caps and corona spheres that are used on our OT capacitors and HV-M power packs are available for sale and make excellent add-ons to your existing equipment.
Centrally located, in the industrial heartland of the US, Plastic Capacitors, Inc., has access to the most complete transportation center in the world, which provides daily service to all domestic markets and hundreds of overseas destinations.
