LV aluminium can capacitors for long life and low losses

VarPlus Can
  • Features

    VarPlus Can are low voltage aluminium can capacitors specially designed to contribute to power quality and power factor mitigation and deliver a long working life in industrial networks, with low losses in standard, heavy-duty and severe operating conditions.

    •  Technical data:
        - High life expectancy up to 160,000 hours
        - Voltage up to 830 V
        - Power ratings up to 50 kvar
        - Operating temperature up to 70 °C
        - Degree of protection IP20
        - Compliant with standards IEC 60831-1 and -2.

    VarPlus Can capacitors must be selected depending on the working conditions expected during their lifetime. Since 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.
