SmartBank™ Medium-Voltage Pad-Mounted Capacitor Banks

SmartBank™ Medium-Voltage Pad-Mounted Capacitor Banks

Our medium-voltage, pad-mounted capacitor banks for power factor correction are offered as a switched bank using our reliable UltraVac® solid dielectric switches, VS vacuum switches, or CSD oil switches combined with the reliability of Trinetics brand capacitors to provide a complete medium voltage capacitor bank that is fully assembled and ready for installation. Trinetics pad-mounted capacitor banks are also available as a fixed bank which does not contain switches but still provides the reliability of Trinetics brand capacitors to provide a complete medium voltage capacitor bank that is fully assembled and ready for installation.

Trinetics also offers the customer flexibility in the choice of a capacitor bank; Trinetics can supply the bank in any state of completion to meet job requirements. Capacitor banks can be supplied without capacitors, or with customer-supplied, Trinetics-installed capacitors. Trinetics can supply capacitor controllers from various manufacturers or provisions for the customer to mount their own controller.

Our power factor correction banks, whether switched or fixed, are supplied in an outdoor, weatherproof enclosure that meets ANSI standards. Our standard enclosure is mild steel, but we can also supply aluminum or stainless steel enclosures to meet specific requirements in environments prone to rusting.
