VARPLUS² : the benefits

Give safety to End Users

The mechanical resistance of the envelop has been multiplied by 2 compare to VARPLUS M.

High withstand to the fire => self extinguishing (V0 plastic to fulfil the UL compliance)

A High Quality protection system :

VARPLUS² is the one capacitor to use this technology to prevent 100% of the eventual defaults

VARPLUS² : protection system

Give safety to End Users

� Against internal defaults (with a low current), thanks to the overpressure system

� Against external defaults (with high current), thanks to the HRC fuse

Dielectric losses its self healing propertiesGas pressure increases slightly and reaches the below.The below riseThe metallic disc short circuits the terminals across the fuse.The faulty capacitor is out of service.

The fuse protects against high current faults > I fuse

It operates for high current short time faults

CEF - Marketing – 2007 – R.Fontanes 19

The consumed energy has been decreased by 10% compare to VARPLUS M: VARPLUS² total losses < 0,5 Watt/kvar (discharge resistor included).

VARPLUS² is ROHS (Restriction Of Hazardous Substances) compliant. It means that VARPLUS² doesn’t contain any substances with concentrations exceeding the limits fixed by the ROHS Organism.

Involvement to the environment (ISO 14001) :

VARPLUS² is a dry technology : free of liquids.

VARPLUS² is environmentally friendly.

VARPLUS² Give involvement to the environment
