Power Factor Capacitors

“Dry Type, Cylindrical Aluminium Cased Capacitors”

PhaseCap capacitors in cylindrical aluminium cases have been designed for power factor correction in low-voltage applications.

Loads like motors and transformers consume active power as well as reactive power. Generators, supply cables and other electrical distribution equipment, in turn, should be relieved of reactive power.

The MKK (metalized plastic compact) AC series is intended to increase packing density per bank and cut component costs.

Improved thermal response and simplified installation are advantages of the cylindrical aluminium case.
