Power Factor Correction

While we’ve enjoyed enormous benefits from the evolution of solid state technology, the fact is that the microelectronics at the heart of that technology requires clean power. Faster speeds and lower voltages mean that there is less and less tolerance for anything less than quality power.

Power Quality (PQ) covers a wide range of issues, from voltage disturbances like sags, swells, outages and transients, to current harmonics, to performance wiring and grounding.

The symptoms of poor PQ include intermittent lock-ups and resets, corrupted data, premature equipment failure, overheating of components for no apparent cause, etc.

The ultimate cost is in downtime, decreased productivity and frustrated personnel.

The following pages show some of the power quality problems you might be faced with today and how we can help solve these problems.
