For use in running single-phase asynchronous motors and in all general a.c. applications at 50/60Hz, ITALFARAD proposes a range of self-healing capacitors, manufactured using a self-extinguishing plastic case filled with resin. This range gives very good electrical reliability together with high mechanical resistance to shock and vibration.

All ITALFARAD motor capacitors have VDE approvals in accordance with European Standard EN 60252.

We show below the life rating of the operating classes :

Class D = 1000 hours

Class C = 3000 hours

Class B = 10000 hours

Class A = 30000 hours

25 = minimum working temperature

085 = maximum working temperature

21 = duration (days) of the humidity test.

ITALFARAD motor capacitors are divided in two groups (according to the terminations):

RPN = capacitors with fast-on terminals

RPC = capacitors with double insulated cable or with two single conductor leads

(these capacitors have an IP55 rating).

The Italfarad Circuit Breaker is a device connected to the running capacitor of a single phase electric motor that provides an extra help when starting, staying connected for a very short time with an additional starting capacitor.

It replaces the old starting methods like the centrifugal one, cumbersome and wearisome in fitting up.

The Italfarad Circuit Breaker is largely adopted for several applications like electric motors for air compressors, washing machines, pumps and generally for all those applications in which the motor is supposed to overcome a considerable opposite mechanical torque.

Currently there are 4 models: 2 electromechanical (ITF05 and ITF06) and 2 electronic (ITF05E and ITF06E).

ITF05 - ITF06 - ITF05E - ITF06E
