New Aerovox 50 Hz Euro Power Factor Correction Capacitors
Get the Same Rugged Power Conversion and Efficient Field Performance
as Our 60 Hz EPFCs!

We've developed a class of rugged, long lasting power factor correction capacitors (PFCs) purposely designed for 50 Hz applications. These substantially improve performance over competitive offerings. 50 Hz PFC capacitors are used in most of the world with the exception of North America, some of South America and Japan where 60 Hz is standard.

PFC capacitors help filter the harmonics load in an electric power system for more efficient usage of utility power and reduction in lost current. More useful power is transferred to the system without requiring heavier wiring or more robust equipment for significant cost savings and longer equipment life. Better use of power also means the utility grid can avoid building additional power generators, saving capital cost, specifically in emerging markets.

  • Aerovox's new 50 Hz PFC capacitors are manufactured to the same stringent standards as our 60 Hz PFCs.
  • Aerovox PFC capacitors provide higher overall efficiency and performance since they were designed specifically for 60 Hz and 50 Hz applications
  • Aerovox 50 Hz PFC capacitors are more robust and can take more current on a given voltage rating than other competitive products.
  • Aerovox capacitors can filter out "dirty" power (fluctuations, harmonic dissonance, etc.) without failing.
  • Aerovox capacitors have built-in self-healing properties. The elements are wound on fully automatic numerically controlled winding machines which ensure no corona discharge or ionization.
  • Aerovox 50 Hz capacitors are customizable, including custom ratings and terminal options. They are available in a wide range of configurations including high harmonic, voltage and KVAR ranges.
  • Our 50 Hz PFC capacitors are manufactured in our state-of-the-art facility in Hydrabad, India under an ISO 9001 -certified quality management system.
  • They are 100% tested prior to shipment, and test data is retained for five years for complete traceability by individual work order numbers.
These new capacitors meet the reliability requirements of 50 Hz customers including IEC 60831-1 & 2 and IS :13340 PART 1 & 2 as well as CE compliance standards. They are available for immediate shipment.
