It's certainly similar but I hit Panasonic's site and don't see anything about a ZY series in any of their catalogs. It could have been retired but the computer in which it was installed is only two years old so you'd think I'd be able to find some mention about it somewhere via google.

Regardless, I appreciate your response and I'll keep scouring.

Big capacitors brands are sometimes making caps for vendors, for example - Panasonic FL and FJ, NCC W for seasonic, NCC PSF Black polys and Nichicon/Fujitsu FPCAP FP10K and FP12K

Sometimes they have a model that is on a datasheet but with a size that does not exist on it, so you can't tell the exact ripple/esr

I've attached an image showing the following lettering:

I know it's 100uF 25V series ZY but I'm coming up dry on locating the manufacturer.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

It might be a Rubycon, look closer, and if you see a K vent, then it's Ruby

The print format looks pretty close

Question Re: Post help identifying capacitors here

I've been told to post capacitor identification here.

Original thread here

The markings on this capacitor look vaguely familiar, but I haven't found the manufacturer of this capacitor (yet). Capacitor from video card.

Who manufacturers this capacitor?

Can you give full name of the videocard ?

I recal EAX brand from mid 2000's, it was something about audio stuff, i think games used it.

Maybe some custom audio caps for the EAX ?

upd: looks like Chinsan(Elite), but they have little bit diffrent markings

Capacitor from a GTX 1070 Ti card.

Elite capacitor? Maybe, but EA(X) series not shown on their website. Unless capacitor is discontinued, or maybe capacitor is custom made (by Elite)?

Well, just one more thing

Brand and PN of card, so maybe I could find some more info on caps which this brand uses often

Capacitor from a MSI card I believe. Card part number unknown, although as far as I know there is only one version of this card from MSI.

Partly by chance by searching on the internet, I now suspect that this capacitor is customized for MSI and possibly manufactured by Apaq.

Apaq have an EA series of capacitors with markings similar to this capacitor in question. But the standard EA series capacitors are marked in red color, and also include Apaq "eye" logo at the beginning of the second line of text/marking. But this "customized" capacitor has blue marking instead of red marking, and the Apaq logo was not included.

So at this time, Apaq seems to be the more likely manufacturer of this capacitor.

I think you're correct !

There are also AV5K caps as I can see on images from google

Thanks for the image!

Yes, I also noticed the presence of the "5k" capacitors as well.
