Power factor correction capacitor banks from Janitza Electronics, available at Westek , are suitable for LV three-phase power distribution. These capacitor banks are now available complete with detuning chokes, discharge resistors, internal busbar system, and HRC fusegear. The power factor correction capacitors utilise dry, gas filled technology, and failure protection. Low loss dielectric of metallized polypropylene, PCB free, and nonflammable mineral filling with adhesive stabilization provide reliable 100% duty cycle.
Banks are available with reactive correction capacity of 150 kVAr and 100 kVAr, with individual step adjustment of 25, 50 and 75 kVAr. The Janitza power factor correction capacitor banks can be directly installed in switchboards, motor control centres, etc, or may be housed in TS-series cabinets together with controllers and line monitoring equipment. The Janitza Prophi series controller provides for solid state/magnetic contactor control whereby it is possible to compensate the basic load by contactors and the fast changing load component with thyristor switches.
The Janitza DIN-rail mounting, UMG 604 Power Analyser and controller completes the total power factor correction system. The analyzer is capable of providing 24/7 continuous monitoring and analysis of single and three-phase, three and four wire networks as well as providing intelligent energy management and functions as a multi-functional power and harmonics analyzer, data logger, kilowatt-hour and kiloVAR-hour meter as well as a maximum demand and PLC controller utilizing logic programming.
