LV Panels

General Description
LV Panels

Any non-linear loads like:

  • Non power factor corrected fluorescent and HID lighting fixture ballasts (40-80% p.f.)
  • Arc welders (50-70% pf)
  • Solenoids (20-50% pf)
  • Induction heating equipment (60-90% pf)
  • Small "dry-pack" transformers (30-95% pf)
  • Induction motors (55-90%) etc.

can cause poor power factor. In many areas electricity boards imposes a penalty charge for low power factor (pf). A poor power factor due to an inductive load can be improved by addition of capacitors in shunt. Awareness of necessity of power factor quality is increasing. Enhancing power quality i.e improvement of power factor saves cost and ensures a rapid return on investments.

Installing "APIPL" APFC Panels provides a reliable solution for elimination of penalties and a cost reduction in the electricity bills by approximately 25%. This panel offers designs that are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. They are designed to minimize installation time and cost and offers high reliability, long life and is suitable for operation over a temperature range of - 10 C to 50 C. A wide range of ratings with standard devices are available
