Automotive capacitors are produced in two groups: the ignition capacitors and the interference suppression capacitors. In the former group the preferred capacitors are: KPs-010 and KPs-014, for use in ignition devices for internal combustion engines of cars and motor vehicles. In the latter group of capacitors the preferred type is KPs-011, used to reduce interference in circuits of alternators, ignition coils and in other circuits of the electrical systems. These capacitors are manufactured on the basis of plastic or paper dielectric. The housings are made from metal cans with appropriately shaped handle (depending on the type and version) or without handle.
We would like to warn our customers against counterfeit KPs-014-1 automotive capacitors which have appeared on the market. In order to view the differences between genuine MIFLEX products and the counterfeit capacitors, please refer to the enclosed image.
WARNING! The counterfeit goods are engraved with the MIFLEX name. We ask you to pay special attention when purchasing automotive capacitors because our company MIFLEX SA shall not be liable for any damages arising from any malfunction of counterfeit products. At the same time we are taking action to eliminate the ‘manufacturers’ pretending to be our company from the market.
