    Energy quality with Power Factor Correction and harmonic filtering

Workers at electrical switching station, electrical power distribution

Challenges

Upgrade your electrical network and improve energy efficiency

Compensating reactive energy increases overall installation capacity, reduces voltage drops and minimizes losses due to Joule effect.  It also extends infrastructure service life and lowers operational costs by reducing overheating.

Support from the onset up to equipment end-of-life
