Abstract:

Sixteen experimental lots Nos. 37-39, 41, 42, and 49-59 completed processing during this period and were placed on life test. Descriptions of the ratings making up these lots, the processing incorporated in them, and the results of pre-life test measurements on them are presented in this report. No additional experimental lots are scheduled to be started through the manufacturing process. Also provided in this report are final life test results on the capacitors of Lots 28-33, 40, 45, and 47 which are undergoing the 85C, rated voltage life test, interim and final life test results on the capacitors of Lots 24-30, 40, and 45 which are undergoing the 125C, rated voltage life test, and interim life test results on the capacitors of Lots 31-33, 46, and 47 which are undergoing the 125C, rated voltage life test. All design and construction work on equipment for mechanizing the assembly operation was completed during this quarter. Three of the seven machines have been successfully tested, two others are about to be evaluated, and the remaining two machines are undergoing minor revisions. Author
