July 10, 2012 – WEG Electric describes its new line of power correction products as improving a plants power factor and supporting users in their efforts of reducing energy consumption, while avoiding costs or penalties from the utilities. Incorporated in the line are contactors, individual single and three phase capacitors, and a new three phase enclosed capacitor with a NEMA 4 enclosure as standard. According to WEG Electric, the products will increase energy efficiency and also increase a plant’s system capacity by allowing additional loads utilizing the same KVA. Additional benefits include the reduction of watt loss, increased life span of motors, equipment and conductors and the reduction of reactive current on the electrical network within the plant, it adds.
