The new generation LV power factor correction capacitors

Part of Easy Series

LV can type capacitors with exceptional reliability, extended life and high over-current capacity for handling slightly harmonic-polluted networks

  • Features

    EasyCan capacitors are low voltage aluminum can type capacitors specially designed to improve your savings. Its compact design and easy installation delivers high durability and safety in standard operating conditions.

    Technical data:

    • High life expectancy up to 100,000 hours
    • One point mounting and Earthing
    • Voltage up to 525 V
    • Power ratings up to 30 kVar
    • Operating temperature up to 55 °C
    • Degree of protection IP20
    • Compliant with standards IEC 60831-1&-2
    EasyCan capacitors must be selected depending on the working conditions expected during their lifetime. Since the harmonics are caused by non-linear loads, an indicator for the magnitude of harmonics is the ratio NLL of the total power of non-linear loads to the power supply transformer rating.
