Metal-Enclosed Capacitor Bank


Reduce losses and CO2 emissions, improve power quality, safety, and reliability in your underground distribution system. Eaton, with more than 70 years of capacitor development experience, introduces metal-enclosed capacitor banks that are smaller, easier-to-install and maintain, and less-intrusive compared to traditional capacitor banks.

Additionally, capacitors--the sustainable solution--improve efficiency in the power system by reducing losses from point of application to the generator, saving money and decreasing CO2 emissions. Capacitors also improve power quality by supporting voltage and mitigating harmonic issues--when applied as harmonic filters.

Meets the following standards ANSI/IEEE, NEMA, IEC
Ratings 2.4kV to 38.0kV; Up to 200kV BIL; Up to 63kA (sym)
Applications Padmount banks; Single & Multiple Step banks; Detuned banks; Harmonic Filter banks
