Who knows what K63 means? I think it comes from an old Philips CRT.

It looks like a blue capacitor It says: N47K63

I think N47 stands for 47 nanoFahrad, but what can K63 mean?

    \$\begingroup\$ N47 usually does not mean 47 nF, but 47K can mean 47000 pF which is 47 nF, 63 means 63 Volts. So My guess is that this is a 47 nF, 63 V capacitor. I'd use an MKT model if it needed to be replaced. \$\endgroup\$ – Bimpelrekkie Aug 27 '17 at 13:45
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Bimpelrekkie Thank you ... I don't need to replace it, the CRT was fully dead. It's my first salvage project and just don't recognize all components (so I learn by asking what it is). I couldn't find it by searching on google. \$\endgroup\$ – Michel Keijzers Aug 27 '17 at 13:49

63 means 63 Volts maximum voltage. Since it is not written that that is AC, assume it is DC so the maximum voltage is 63 V DC. Although that sounds like an odd value, it is often used.

So My guess is that this is a 47 nF, 63 V capacitor. I'd use an MKT model if it needed to be replaced.
