Power Capacitors distributes motor and power electronics capacitors, motors and inverters.
Power Capacitors is the sole manufacturer of TRANSWAVE Converters for the operation of 3-phase equipment where only a single phase electricity supply is available.
PowerCan capacitor elements are cylindrical, manufactured in dry-wound metallised polypropylene (MKP) technology, available from 0.25kVAr to 25kVAr.
The compact dimensions and minimum IP2X protection rating of these capacitors makes them ideally suited to the individual power factor correction of motors. The space they occupy within a motor starter compartment is minimal.
The larger kVAr ratings are also suitable for use as the constituent elements of larger capacitor banks and automatic capacitor systems.
The kVAr ratings of the PowerCan range are calculated at 415 volts, 3 phase 50Hz. These capacitors are suitable for continuous operation at voltages up to at least 450Vrms, at which they are still able to withstand the overvoltage requirements of BSEN-60831. This means that they can be used with detuning reactors on 415V systems. Larger, more expensive capacitors of higher voltage ratings specially selected for detuned applications are not required.
In a home workshop, farm, garage or small business environment there is often a requirement for the operation of machinery driven by three phase induction motors where only a single phase electricity supply is available. The TRANSWAVE Converter ® provides an artificial means by which three-phase motors can be operated from a single-phase supply thereby offering a cost-effective solution to this dilemma. In most instances, no modification to the machine is necessary. The Rotary Converter is particularly suited to the multi-motor, multi-operator environment. Multi-motor applications can be accommodated up to the maximum loading of the converter provided that the specified maximum single motor load is not exceeded. The Static Converter is designed to operate three phase motors with starting characteristics and duty cycles as generally experienced on machine tool applications (i.e. light to medium duty and relatively constant load conditions). This style of converter is typically used in single operator environments where only one machine is used at a time.
IMO INVERTERS (DIGITAL MOTOR CONTROLLERS)
The speed of an induction motor is directly related to its supply frequency. An inverter or frequency converter offers the facility to electronically vary the speed of a three-phase motor from a single-phase supply by varying the frequency of the supply to the motor.

In addition to the range of equipment available, Power Capacitors is able to offer a full range of on-site services.
Equipment Maintenance – whether a simple health-check, repair, rebuild or replacement, regardless of who originally manufactured your Power Factor Correction Equipment (PFC). Your PFC equipment is designed to maintain the amount of energy drawn from your electricity supply at an appropriate level. Over time component parts will gradually deteriorate. Eliminate unforeseen and unwelcome increases in your electricity charges by servicing your PFC equipment regularly. Our site services engineers are available 7 days a week, nationwide.
