Capacitor Bank

Capacitors help adjust the power factor and voltage and allow electricity to be distributed more efficiently.

They can be remotely controlled and switched into and out of the system as needed. Some capacitor banks are controlled with temperature switches so that if the temperature exceeds a certain value, the capacitor bank is automatically switched into the circuit. Others are set on time clock switches to automatically be connected and disconnected to the system during pre-determined times typically corresponding to operation of a large factory or some other load with a low power factor.
