Optim EMS-C capacitor banks are designed for power factor correction in networks with highly fl uctuating load variations. Their switching system is based on the use of solid state semiconductors and it allows the diff erent steps to be connected and disconnected in only milliseconds.
With this system, transients are prevented between the connection and disconnection of the steps, obtaining an immediate response to the load fl uctuations. In addition, the need for maintenance of the capacitor bank is reduced thanks to the absence of moving elements.
The most common application is with individual loads or in installations where a quick compensation response is needed (for ex., welding units, motors for lifting units, lifts, etc.)
