NOVAR 2618 3-p apfcr

NOVAR 2618 High class three phase APFC with internal memory option.

NOVAR 2618 (and NOVAR 2607, 2609, 2616) represents a professional model of the innovated APFC line NOVAR with three data logging options. It is based on the innovated hardware platform with improved, precise and continuous evaluation and control of all required parameters in a complete three phase system. It is fully automatic and it has a simple installation. It offers up to 18 relay outputs to control combinations of single-, two and three-phase compensation steps of both the compensation capacitors and decompensation reactors. 

As an addition to the three phase automatic power factor controller function the instrument also includes a universal power meter (multimeter). It can be equipped with optional 512MB of internal memory where the runtime data can be logged. Archives can be downloaded into the PC and simply analysed to evaluate history of compensation system performance. The built-in four-quadrant electricity meter registers both active and reactive energy in up to 3 different user defined tariffs(TOU).

A large, bright and high resolution display provides all the required information on one screen. All important parameters can be also configured in a very intuitive and simple menu navigation.

Online monitoring of the NOVAR operated power factor correction cabinet is possible with the supported ENVIS application or with other SCADA systems. This APFCR offers a wide range of communication options: USB, RS485 and Ethernet is available in various combinations.

ENVIS application suite provides all features for basic instrument management (configuration, supervision, fw update). It also downloads and archives data from all the supported instruments. import/export, data analysis and advanced reporting of the records is also provided. ENVIS is available free of charge to be used with all our instruments.

Typická instalace aplikace ENVIS

ENVIS.Online system service can be used to implement complex power quality monitoring and/or energy efficienci control and monitoring systems. By using email,  SMS or SNMP all registered users and administrators can be warned upon exeptional situations, malfunction of supply or monitored instruments or it can be used to post periodical analysis/reports.

Additional plugin modules can also add special features or customizations to booth ENVIS and ENVIS.Online in a modular manner.
