I have no decoupling capacitors...could that be the reason for the freezes?
I get random freezes, when i switch a relay that is turning on a 230Volt pump.
What are the common uses for these capacitors?The most common use for X & Y capacitors is in EMI/RFI filtering applications where they are directly connected to the AC Power line. These types of capacitors may also be used to suppress electrical noise generated by motors, inverters and electronic ballasts. They are also used in solid state relay snubbers and spark quenchers for suppression of inductive transients.
