A capacitor designed specifically for AC harmonic filtering or Power Factor Correction applications is available at New Yorker Electronics. The ASC Capacitor HCO/HCG Single Phase AC Filter Capacitor is engineered for input and output filtering in UPS, Motor Drives, LC/LCL Filtering, Wind and Solar Power and other power conversion technologies.
The high current, single phase capacitors are manufactured with very high quality metallised polypropylene film, designed for long life, low dielectric losses, higher RMS current ratings and low ESR.
There are two types, the HCG is filled with ASC soft gel and the HCO is filled with biodegradable vegetable-based oil.
Both designs offer excellent thermal conductivity to help reduce internal heating and extend the life of the capacitor. The oil-filled version is mounted upright, while the gel-filled model can be mounted in any position.
Both are covered in aluminum casing and the male terminals (M6 or M8) and the female terminals (M5-M8) are tin plated brass.
This line of capacitors is also incorporated with internal UL recognized fusing mechanisms that interrupt when pressure reaches a tested level. The products meet IEC61071, IEC60831 and UL810 standards.
Features include a capacitance Range of17.5μF - 760μF and voltage Range from 250Vrms to 1000Vrms Operational temperature range is 40°/70°C (custom ratings available), storage temperature Range is -40°/85°C.
The capacitor has RMS Current Up to 80Arms. It meets IEC6071, IEC60831, UL810 standards.
Applications include AC Harmonic Filtering and Power Factor Correction.
