Capacitor Contactor Addresses Switching Powers of 80 kvar
Wed, 01/19/2011 - 9:21am
TDK-EPC has developed a new capacitor contactor for switching powers of 80 kvar. It supplements the previous series for powers of 12.5, 20, 25, 33, 50, 75 and 100 kvar, enabling cost-effective PFC solutions to be implemented in specific configurations. Use of a 100 kvar contactor or parallel connection of lower powers is no longer required. The new 80 kvar contactor offers the same features and technical properties as the other types of this series such as desirable attenuation of inrush currents; optimized switching behaviour that extends the operating life of PFC capacitors and of the entire system; transient avoidance; reduced resistive losses; simple installation; isolated and protected resistor function; and improved energy quality.
