Power factor correction

October 1, 2011




The StacoVAR mini automatic power factor correction bank maintains a desired power factor level by using a microprocessor-based controller to adjust to system load conditions. Metalized polypropylene dry-type capacitors inside the compact enclosure incorporate an overpressure device and discharge resistor safety system; capacitor-rated contactors with damping resistors reduce back-to-back switching currents. UL listed, the unit is suitable for a variety of applications including food and beverage processing, water and wastewater treatment, and manufacturing and industrial facilities.
