The ballasts of fluorescent lamps fittings can be parallel or
series compensated. For each of these applications, ITALFARAD
produces suitable capacitors.
parallel compensation applications, the MFP-F “type A” range
with thermoplastic case and also, MFR-25, MFR-1 and MFR-40 “type
B” ranges with metallic case (equipped with overpressure
protection device) are used.
MFP-F range is particularly suitable for use with fluorescent
lamps. MFR-25, MFR-1 and MFR-40 ranges are ideal for
compensation of mercury, metal halide and sodium high pressure
series compensation, we have available MFR-45 “type B” ranges,
in aluminium case, equipped with an overpressure protection
regard to the working environment, we recommend the MFP-F range
for temperate climate and MFR-25, MFR-1 or MFR-45 ranges for
these capacitors utilize metalized polypropylene dielectric
which has inherent self-healing properties.
capacitors are able to solve any power factor correction problem
in lighting applications. The high quality and reliability, with
long experience in his field, bring ITALFARAD to a world leader
our capacitors are ENEC approved according to European Standards
EN61048+AII(1999) and EN61049. The manufacturing process is CSQ
approved according to ISO 9001/2000 Standards.
Furthermore, several strict tests verify the capacitors security
by means of a “destruction” test.
MFR-1 series are also UL/ULc (construction only) homologated
