The CBC-8000 Capacitor Bank Control (CBC) is specifically designed to operate utility distribution feeder capacitors. This highly flexible control can be deployed using site metrology, which include Voltage, VARs, Current, Temperature, and Time control configurations.

Each control is a low cost, remote controlled unit which can be readily deployed in advance automation schemes such as Eaton Yukon™ Integrated Volt/VAR Control Application, SCADA or Distribution Management System. Each control also includes a robust offering of communication loss “or failsafe” back up modes in the event that communications become unavailable, the control can utilize the site metrology to maintain grid stability.
