Launch of compact power quality filter

We have introduced the new Comsys ADF P25 small compact active filter to our supply range. This ultra-compact filter addresses recurring power quality issues in industry for applications where space is at a premium.

Power quality is a growing concern for utility providers, manufacturers and data centres. The more advanced technology in today’s facilities is putting higher demand on the electrical grid, making machinery particularly susceptible to power quality issues and unexplained equipment malfunctions and stoppages.

This coincides with the dwindling space in today’s facilities — there often isn’t room for a bulky power filter. Improved space optimisation for this equipment enables higher production volumes in the same footprint, saving business huge sums of money in floorspace.

“We have taken 20 years of know-how in high power active harmonic filters and built the most robust small size active harmonic filter on the market,” explained Rickard Jacobson of Comsys.

The Comsys ADF P25 addresses the need for an ultra-compact power filter, without compromising on protection. It filters a variety of electrical disturbances, including transients and harmonics, which could go on to cause overheated transformers, nuisance tripping and non-compliance with grid codes.

“Our customers are attempting to maximise on every inch of floor space,” explained John Mitchell of CP Automation. “At the same time, they are also optimising energy efficiency and proactively protecting machinery from unnecessary downtime. Luckily for them, the ADF P25 offers the same performance as its big brothers, the ADF P300 or ADF P100, but in a much smaller size.

“The filter is suitable for new build facilities or as part of a retrofit approach and it is compatible with all three-phase low voltage applications. To get the filter commissioned, all that is needed is a laptop with an ethernet port and recent web browser. Investing in this is a no-brainer to save on footprint, downtime and parts replacement costs.”

The ADF P25, as with the other Comsys products that CP Automation supplies, are engineered and manufactured in Sweden to extremely high standards. The expert engineering has enabled several ADF P25s to be combined, offering modular and scalable design as facilities increase power demands.
