Automatic PFC Cubicles - PowerCab & PowerCab Plus.
The PowerCab and PowerCab Plus range of power factor correction cabinets have a proven pedigree in finding the perfect balance between cost, performance and flexibility. We can offer common and popular ratings from 50kVAr to 450kVAr with both standard and detuned systems incorporating a range of dimensions, incoming cable arrangements and stage sizes.
The PowerCab range is suitable for use on standard power systems, whilst the PowerCab Plus ranges includes detuning reactors for use on systems prone to harmonic distortion. We offer the same quick turnaround on any non-standard designs and requirements for more challenging applications.
