PhaseCap HD series of capacitorsEpcos launched its MKK440-D-56-01 type in the PhaseCap HD series of capacitors for power factor correction. This type is rated at 56kvar for a supply voltage of 440V at 50Hz and makes it possible to implement a 50kvar stage with just one capacitor. Up till now, Epcos said, two 28kvar capacitors were needed to obtain a 50kvar stage in a PFC system with a detuning level of 7 percent in a 400V grid.

The capacitor is rated at 3 x 307?F for a rated current of 74A. Like all PFC capacitors from Epcos, this new product is self-healing and PCB-free. The mean life expectancy of the capacitor is 115, 000 hours at 5,000 switching operations per year. Special customer benefits include a lower space requirement in switching cabinets and simplified logistics. Installation time and costs are also cut, said the press release.
