Guard III Harmonic Mitigating

Guard III Harmonic Mitigating Transformers help eliminate harmonics, improve power quality, and help save energy by reducing the energy (heating) losses. They maintain DOE2016 energy efficiency even when harmonics are present.

 

Power supplies that convert AC to DC current – for plant floor equipment, computers, copiers, electronic ballasts, and others –  generate harmonics that create an irregular current waveform. These harmonics, in turn, create power quality problems such as overheated transformers, motors and neutral wires; nuisance breaker trips; and electronic equipment malfunction and failure.

Benefits

  • Helps improve power quality and helps save energy by reducing heating losses
  • Designed to help reduce operating costs
  • Easy access for installation and service
