ARCO AMC Fixed Capacitor Banks

ARCO

Construction

  • The fixed capacitor banks are designed for low voltage linear applications and incorporate high quality single phase cells which are wired in a three phase Delta configuration.  The capacitors are housed in a NEMA 3R enclosure panel.  The enclosure is manufactured from 16 gauge steel and is furnished with mounting holes for quick and easy installation.  Other NEMA rated are available – consult the factory

Capacitor Design

  • Internal Pressure Interrupter meets UL 810 requirements.  Discharge voltage is less than 50 volts in less than 1 minute after the cell has electrically been removed from circuit.
  • Environmentally safe epoxidized soybean-oil dielectric fluid.  Soybean-oil is environmentally compatible and biodegradable. 

Capacitor Losses

  • The capacitor design has a total loss which is as low as 2 Watts per kVAR.

Electrical Characteristics

  • Capacitance Tolerance is + or – 15%.
  • Overcurrent Tolerance is 135% of rated current continuously.
  • Overvoltage Tolerance is 110% of rated voltage
  • Standard Operating Temperature
    -40 F to +115 F.  Operation above 115 F will shorten the capacitor life.

Wiring Cable Insulation

  • All internal conductors are insulated stranded copper wire rated at 90 C.

Fuse Protection & Indicator Lights (Optional – Add Suffix Letter “L” to Catalog Number)

  • The internal protection fuses are time-delay and rated at 600 VAC with the sizing based upon the nominal amperage rating of the kVAR size in accordance with the National Electric Code requirements.
 
  • For single phase applications change Prefix Number from 3 to 1.
  • For 208 VAC applications divide kVAR size by .75 to find equivalent in 240 VAC size.
