BR7000 Series

“Designed To Measure Actual Power Factor And Connect Or Disconnect Capacitor Stages”

The PF (Power Factor) controller, BR7000 is a follow up development of the BR6000 series, featuring two devices in one. It can be used as a controller as well as a grid measuring tool.

The BR7000 offers 15 relay outputs for the steps and three message / alarm relays. Due to the programming ability, the 15 outputs can be used for a broad range of applications, for example:

  • 15 conventional steps, each for one three-phase capacitor
  • 15 steps for single-phase capacitors, where each output will switch a single-phase capacitor to N (usually 5 per phase, balancing of grid is possible)
  • Mixed operation: 6 single-phase capacitors (2 per phase) for balancing plus 9 steps for conventional compensation (three-phase capacitors)
  • The controller can be connected to a PC via a RS485 interface. The Windows-based software BR7000-SOFT allows the readout of acquired data. The possibility of graphical display of all values offers a comfortable visualisation.

  • LCD full graphic display, 128 X 64 dots, 8 lines

  • Oscilloscope mode for graphical display
  • Quick programming

Evaluation Software – BR7000 – SOFT

Windows Based Software

This programme offers the possibility for a comfortable parameterisation, recording, analysis and visualisation of grid parameters in online operation via a PC.

The software allows the recording and graphical evaluation of all values including an export and print function. The spectrum of harmonics can also be displayed as a bar chart for an easy to read display of this information.

The configuration manager allows a complete read out, editing, storing and writing of all parameters of the PF controller via PC. All data can be stored as a configuration file.

  • Connection to RS485 – bus
  • Administration of several PF controllers possible
  • Convenient analysis of recorded values
  • Direct connection to USB via a USB adaptor
  • CD-ROM included
  • To view more information on the BR7000 controller download the Product Information Sheet.
