Default Class X2 and Class Y Capacitors.

For any position where a capacitor is connected across the mains or is subjected to similar AC voltages, Class X2 suppresser capacitors must be used. If the failure of the capacitor could put the user in danger (such as a blocking capacitor in line with an aerial, earth or gram socket on an AC/DC set) a Class Y suppresser must be used to comply with electrical safety regulations.
