Compact. Rugged. Easy to Install.

PowerCap is Powerside’s complete range of reliable wall or floor mount, fixed and automatic low voltage capacitor and harmonic filter banks. Used in industrial and commercial environments, they’re designed for load-side compensation use and for nominal voltages ranging from 480V to 600V.  They’re an affordable choice to improve power factor correction caused by loads such as reactive power demand, harmonics, and unbalanced consumption.

The PowerCap series is designed to provide power factor correction for:

  • Normal, fixed loads
  • Moderate harmonics, fixed loads
  • High harmonics, fixed loads
  • Normal, variable loads

Features

  • Compact, rugged, easy to install
  • Floor or easy to install wall mount enclosure
  • Factory tested
  • Short lead times
  • Competitive pricing

Benefits

  • Reduce or eliminate power factor penalties
  • Reduce power losses in cables and transformers
  • Improve energy efficiency
  • Increase operational reliability
  • Improved equipment reliability

Applications

  • All types of motor loads
  • Motor drives, lighting or grouped loads were electronic and inductive loads require compensation
  • High load compensation in high harmonic environments
  • Mixed load applications
  • Variable loads that require dynamic power factor compensation
  • PowerCap PFC
