Plastic case motor run capacitors

A range of self-healing capacitors, manufactured using a self-extinguishing plastic case, filled with resin.

For using in running single-phase asynchronous motors and in all general a.c. applications at 50/60Hz, this range gives very good electrical reliability together with high mechanical resistance to shock and vibration.

ITALFARAD motor capacitors are divided in two groups, according to the terminals:

RPN = capacitors with fast-on terminals
RPC = capacitors with double insulated cable or with two single conductor leads

Case and cover Flame retardant plastic material
Fixing M8 metal stud, if required

All the ITALFARAD motor running capacitors are VDE approved, in compliance with the Standards EN 60252-1.

For a better understanding of the performances with the Standards rating, refer to the following table of the expected life and data:

Class D = 1.000 hours
Class C = 3.000 hours
Class B = 10.000 hours
Class A = 30.000 hours

25 = minimum operating temperature
085 = maximum operating temperature
21 = duration (days) of the damp-heat test
