Specialist filters make energy cleaner

Alternative Energy - Sun, 11/19/2017 - 09:06
Power quality specialist REO UK has extended its range of harmonic filters with the REOWAVE passive plus. The new product features specially developed control circuitry that minimises reactive power by only activating the filter circuit at certain currents, while also protecting the device against overheating and electrical overload. This technology reduces power consumption of the overall electrical system by approximately 20 per cent.
