New Yorker Electronics has released the ASC X382 (three phase) capacitors, manufactured with very high quality metallized polypropylene film, designed for long life, low dielectric losses, higher root mean square current ratings and low equivalent series resistance. The capacitors are filled with ASC soft gel or biodegradable vegetable based oil designed to offer excellent thermal conductivity to help reduce internal heating and extend the life of the capacitor. The capacitor is incorporated with internal UL recognized fusing mechanisms that interrupt when pressure reaches a tested level.
The ASC X382 three-phase capacitance range is 3 x 8.0 uF to 3 x 233 uF, its voltage range is 240 V AC to 850 V AC. Its construction consists of a sealed aluminum can with an M12 stud and either the gel or oil fill. It is UL approved to 10,000 available fault current for voltages up to 620 root-mean-square voltage. The gel-filled offers the same protections as oil-filled but can be mounted in any direction.
Applications for this capacitor include three-phase filtering and power factor correction.
