NOVAR 2418 3-p apfcr

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

NOVAR 2418 (and NOVAR 2407, 2409, 2416) represents basic type of a new product line of three phase APFCR with advanced functions and parameters. It has compact enclosure and large bright segment LCD display. All important run-time information is available directly on its screen. High contrast and active back lit provides great readability in all possible light conditions.

This PFC builds on an innovated hardware and firmware platform with continual high accuracy measurement of all network parameters and energy. It also includes complete digital power monitor and precise four-quadrant electricity meterIt is fully automatic and it has a simple installation. Up to 18 relay outputs can control combinations of single-, two and three-phase compensation steps with compensation capacitors and de-compensation reactors. 

Optional remote communication line offers RS-485 or Ethernet. These interfaces allows the controller to be fully supervised and managed from remote ENVIS application. It also supports ModBus RTU and ModBus TCP so integration with common SCADA systems is straightforward.

Typical applications: power factor correction in three phase unbalanced networks, for systems with higher precision requirements, of to compensate frequent load changes (18 steps)

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.
