DESIGN / CONSTRUCTIONAMBER series ‘PF’ Low Voltage Three Phase Power Capacitors in ‘Resin Encapsulated – Dry Type’ design are manufactured out of Modules made of Low Loss Self-Healing Metallised Polypropylene Film, encapsulated in resin. The modular construction allows repair / maintenance of the assembly at the component level.

DISCHARGE RESISTORSFitted to reduce the voltage to a level below 75V within 3 minutes of switch-off.

TERMINATIONPlated Terminals for termination of Cables.

HOUSING: Electrostatic Powder Coated MS sheet, 1 mm.

kVAr RANGE Please refer to the data given on the next pages. For ranges not mentioned there, please enquire.

WARNING: Capacitor replacement may be hazardous since residual voltage may be present across the capacitor terminals. Always discharge capacitors by short-circuiting the terminals with an insulated wire, even though discharge resistors may have been provided.

ATTENTION: Capacitors covered by this catalogue comply with international standards such as IEC, VDE, BS, EN, UL etc. It is the user’s responsibility to take utmost care both in the selection of capacitors for a particular usage, and their correct installation. AMBER shall not be liable for any consequential damages occurring for any reasons what-so-ever.

Note:

  • Due to continuous research and development in our technology, the data and sizes given in this catalogue may be changed without prior notice.
  • Please reconfirm the dimensions with AMBER if this information is crucial for your application.
  • Please contact AMBER for your requirements of non-standard working voltages, capacitance values, container dimensions, lead-lengths, tolerances, etc.

3rd and 4th positions Voltage code – Working Voltage ÷ 10
5th, 6th, 7th and 8th positions kVAr code – kVAr x 100
9th position Frequency code
A = 50 Hz
B = 60 Hz

Example: If customer has three phases, 50 Hz, 25 kVAr with 440 volts than its ordering code is: PF440250A
