Schaffner’s ECOsine® Active Eliminates Harmonics and Reduces the Cost for Reactive Power

Schaffner Active FilterWhether for machinery, welding equipment, variable-frequency drives, or electric motors almost all non-linear consumers can cause substantial voltage distortion. Harmonic currents up to the 50th harmonic and expensive reactive power: ECOsine® Active eliminates both direct and reliable harmonic currents up to the 50th harmonic and expensive reactive power. This improves power quality and reduces cost. It’s easy to calculate the cost savings in reactive power, however, cost reduction due to less wear on equipment, less troubleshooting, or even prevented production downtime are more difficult to quantify.

Studies show that this amounts to billions of dollars in damages each year. This is what makes ECOsine® Active such good investment for all areas with system movement problems. As the latest generation of active harmonic filters ECOsine® Active offers numerous additional advantages compared to traditional technology from being faster, smaller and offering better performance. All making power quality easier to manage.
