PALATINE, IIl. – Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, has announced the introduction of VarSet Low Voltage Capacitor Banks for smart, simple, and reliable power factor correction. This complete range of wall-mounted and floor-standing capacitor banks offers fixed, automatic, and dynamic compensation for reactive power and harmonic distortion to improve power quality and reliability. VarSet is specifically designed to allow operations including retail, small industrial facilities and commercial buildings to benefit from improved power quality. Now, operations can increase energy efficiency, lower utility costs, and prevent costly, unplanned downtime due to power loss.
“With complicated electrical infrastructures and multiple systems to manage, sometimes facilities may not be aware of the need for power factor correction and the benefits it provides,” said Joy Silber, national business development manager, Power Solutions, Schneider Electric. “VarSet is a simple, reliable solution to correct power factor and improve power quality, allowing facilities to lower operating and capital costs while boosting efficiency and productivity.”
Reactive power and harmonic distortion can cause stress and damage to an electrical network, causing equipment reliability issues resulting in costly, unplanned downtime and productivity loss. Besides increased operating expenses due to power losses and inefficiencies, many utility companies charge a penalty fee for poor power factor. Compensating for reactive power and harmonic distortion with VarSet Capacitor Banks is an easy way to maintain power factor and quality at an ideal level for maximum power system efficiency and cost reduction.
Fully type tested and designed for easy installation, VarSet Low Voltage Capacitor Banks are available in wall-mounted and floor-standing enclosures from 25 to 300 kVAR.
