    LV aluminium can capacitors

    LV aluminium can capacitors for long life and low losses

    VarplusCan
    • Features

      VarplusCan are low voltage aluminium can capacitors specially designed to deliver a long working life with low losses in standard, heavy-duty and severe operating conditions.

      • Technical data:
        - High life expectancy up to 160,000 hours
        - Voltage up to 830 V
        - Power ratings up to 50 kvar
        - Operating temperature up to 70 °C
        - Degree of protection IP20
        - Compliant with standards IEC 60811-1 and -2

      VarplusCan capacitors must be selected depending on the working conditions expected during their lifetime. Since the harmonics are caused by non-linear loads, an indicator for the magnitude of harmonics is the ratio NLL of the total power of non-linear loads to the power supply transformer rating.
