3-Phase capacitors are designed for long life
The ASC X382 (Three Phase) capacitors, manufactured with very high quality metallised polypropylene film have been released by New Yorker Electronics.
They are designed for long life, low dielectric losses, higher RMS current ratings, and low ESR.
The capacitors are filled with ASC soft gel or biodegradable vegetable based oil designed to offer excellent thermal conductivity to help reduce internal heating and extend the life of the capacitor.
The capacitor is incorporated with internal UL recognised fusing mechanisms that interrupt when pressure reaches a tested level.
The ASC X382 3-Phase Capacitance Range is 3 x 8.0 to 3 x 233uF, its voltage range is 240 to 850VAC. Its construction consists of a sealed aluminum can with an M12 stud and either the gel or oil fill.
It is UL Approved to 10000AFC for voltages up to 620Vrms. The gel-filled offers the same protections as oil filled but can be mounted in any direction.
Applications for this capacitor include 3-phase filtering and power factor correction. The capacitor is incorporated with internal UL recognised fusing mechanisms that interrupt when pressure reaches a tested level.
