Designed to Handle High RMS Currents

For today’s high energy AC filtering, the 3MP series has a robust integrated flange for versatile mounting positions along with male and female terminal options. It’s most unique feature is that it has been outfitted to accept a thermal sensing device located at the capacitor hot spot. A normally closed thermal cut-out (TCO) is potted in the geometric center of the device. As the capacitor reaches critical temperatures the TCO opens and a user defined circuit will trigger the appropriate action. The capacitor can also accept other sensing technology per customer specification.
