eCAP II / MCAP II Single Phase Capacitor Controller

The MCAP II and eCAP II series of capacitor controls are a powerful yet affordable choice for controlling single step switched capacitor banks. The MCap II automatically opens or closes the capacitor switch in response to system changes. The eCAP II provides the same functionality plus remote control of the capacitor bank and remote access to system data.

The MCAPII and eCAP II can be programmed to switch based on changes in:

  • Voltage
  • Amps
  • Vars
  • Temperature
  • Watts
  • Time
  • Power Factor
  • Day of week

The MCap II and eCAP II are available as a Standard model or an Extended model, which adds a 2-line LCD display and toggle switches that can be used to program the control in the field without a computer. All models include a USB port for interfacing with a PC, data retrieval and viewing system information.

All controls can be furnished with either full or limited feature set. The Limited version supports time, temperature and voltage switching strategies while the Full Feature version supports all switching parameters.

The control firmware is flash upgradeable via the front panel USB port, so as improvements and bug fixes are released, the control can be easily upgraded to incorporate all the latest feature sets.

All MCAP II and eCAP II controls include support for a line post current sensor regardless of the feature set chosen by the user.
