Components for Power Factor Correction
EL-Dr Discharge Reactor
The increasing call for shorter discharge periods can not be satisfied by traditional discharge means (fixed resistors). On the other hand, the installation of additional fast discharge resistors at the capacitor contactor would require increased expenses for material and installation.
Our discharge reactor replaces the common fixed resistors and additional rapid discharge resistors, and at the same time it substantially reduces the heat losses inside the capacitor bank.
Available for direct mounting on capacitor terminals (designs L and M) for up to 600Vrms or mounting on rails or even base for up to 690Vrms.
