Power Caps Feature Lever-Operated Spring Terminal

Vishay Intertechnology’s LVAC power capacitors feature ESTAspring, described as the industry's first lever-operated spring terminal connection. Reducing assembly time by 60 %, the ESTA PhMKP series capacitors increase connection reliability in high-vibration applications.

While most tubular power capacitors feature an IP20 terminal block with a screw connection, the ESTAspring connection of the PhMKP series is screwless. This promises a faster and easier connection, and the continuous contact force ensures the highest level of contact reliability over the devices' entire lifetime, making them ideal for applications prone to loose connections.

The PhMKP series offers voltages from 230V to 1 kV, output from 2 kvar to 37.1 kvar, and a maximum terminal current of 90A. Featuring a stainless-steel spring, the capacitors are corrosion-proof and available in oil-filled and dry gas-filled versions. Additionally, the components are RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, UL- and cUL-approved, and Vishay Green.
