It's amazing how the difference in materials in a capacitor can determine failure or success. This took quite an effort of perseverance and deduction to determine the source of the problem.
This is also one of the more technical Sherlok Ohms postings we're seen. I'd like to hear from commenters about whether you prefer tech problems like this or the more everyday problems like how to figure out why your car is stalling.

For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
