Euro-Style PFC Capacitors Target Three-Phase Applications
Aerovox announced it has extended its range of AeroPower power factor correction (PFC) capacitors to include round 3-phase designs with mounting studs. The company’s new Euro-style capacitors feature a vacuum-impregnated metalized polypropylene, round aluminum case with M12 mounting studs and a three-contact metric terminal block. They are manufactured at the company’s facility in China and will be inventoried in the USA, to provide fast delivery throughout the world.
The Euro-style capacitors are available in over forty standard configurations, with ratings from 240 to 600 VAC, 50 Hz and 60 Hz, including versions for high harmonic applications.
