eCAP 9445 Three-Phase Capacitor Controller

Based upon QEI’s field proven 6ACP6 platform, the eCAP-9445 provides three-phase, single-phase, 3-step, or 2-step capacitor bank control in a cost effective package.When equipped with a suitable serial or TCP/IP based communication channel, it provides SCADA functionality via DNP3 or any other current or legacy protocol from the 6ACP6 library to smoothly integrate with your larger distribution management system.

The eCAP-9445 accepts voltage and current inputs from either line post sensors or instrument transformers directly. Capacitor switching may be based on either voltage or kVAR, with a local voltage override option included, which has precedence over kVAR control. Neutral current detection is also present.

The +12VDC 2.0A power supply provides power for both the 6ACP6 board itself and a user supplied radio. Six control relay outputs (each rated at 10A/250VAC) are arranged as 3 trip/close pairs for independent or ganged control of three cap bank switches. Front panel switches are included for phases A,B,C open/ close , auto, manual, local/remote and lock-out. Front panel LED indicators are included for easy assessment of operations.
