Drive Automation Panel
We are engaged in manufacturing a wide range of automatic power factor control (APFC) panels. These electrical control panels maintain the power factor of the system automatically by switching the capacitor banks as per the needs of the system. Moreover, our range of electrical control panels also maintains the desired power factor through the APFCR (Automatic Power Factor Control Relay).
The APFC panels we offer to our clients are equipped with different outgoing of 630A, 400A, 63A & 32A. They comprise of one main ACB 1600A 4 pole MDO and a capacitor bank 400KVAR. Our products are used in various applications in different industries.
APFC Panel has microcontroller based programmable controller which switches the capacitor banks of suitable capacity automatically in multiple stages by directly reading the reactive load (RKVA) which works in the principle of VAR sensing tends to maintain the PF to 0.99 Lag. The capacitor banks may be selected in number of stages as 4/6/8 according to the load pattern.
Install APFC Panel to avoid penalties and enjoy the benefits automatically.
Here are various parameters on which these APFC Works.
current - Sensing based APFC
Power Factor Sensing based APFC (It is the mostly used type of APFC Panel)
