ALPHA series thyristor modules are designed to switch capacitive loads up to 80 kVAr in power factor correction (PFC) applications. The modules can switch capacitive loads within 10ms of receiving a triggering signal. The microprocessor-based architecture and its algorithm switches at the voltage zero crossing, thereby avoiding capacitor abrasion
Technical specifications presented here are provided for 40ºC ambient temperature and 70ºC heat sink temperature, unless otherwise specified. Exceeding these guaranteed ratings will significantly reduce module life expectancy.
