Hej Francois Robbertze. Tack för ditt meddelande 18:16 2002-09-07 enligt nedan:

>The distubutor send me a 0.01uF X2 Type cap. What is the meaning of the X2?
X2 are rated to safely be ysed between L and N on 230VAC line input.
(used for noise suppression)
So, it can cope with 230VAC PLUS TRANSIENTS.
This is far more than your requested 250VDC, so i is OK.
BTW, "Y" types are rated to be used between L and GND, and N and GND, for noise suppression.
