LT –All-PP Capacitor unit: Capacitor units are manufactured in the range of 5KVAr to 200KVAr in the voltage range of 110 V to 1000Volts. Capacitor banks (220 Volts to 440V / 1000V) are formed by series parallel combination of these units connected in various formations depending upon customer’s requirement / applications and applicable protection schemes. Bare capacitor units are used inside the automatic PF correction panels. Capacitors are type tested as per IEC / ISS (IS-13585/1994) in CRPI /ERDA Laboratory

** All PP capacitor does not require inrush suppression coils which are used in MPP design capacitors. Coils contribute heavy power losses (2 to 4 Watts / Kvar) in MPP Capacitors
Special Features of SLDT (Single Layer Double Thick) Design over Double layer APP design
Life tested for 1000 hours at 1.2 times rated voltage & at 50 Degree C ambient.
LV Capacitors are manufactured in same machines, which are used, for HV capacitors and hence very high standards of process are maintained for all capacitors of LV range.
More than Two Million-KVAr capacitors with SLDT, All PP dielectric design are in operation in India and abroad.
Design / Technology
Universal Cables Ltd (UCL) entered into manufacturing of capacitors in the year 1967 under the technical collaboration with “Toshiba” of Japan. In the year 1977 we initiated Mixed dielectric (MD) technology capacitors in India with the General Electric of USA. As a continuous development process, we come up with the revolutionary technology of All-PP Capacitors with another technological tie-up with GE-USA in the year 1985.
For the continuous up-gradation in manufacturing process, UCL has one of the most modern plant in the Country. Cleanliness in our winding section is maintained as per US federal standards. Dust particles of 0.5 micron and above are limited to 100 particles on the winding machine and 1000 particle level in the room.
UCL is one of the few companies having its own R & D department to experiment with new raw materials and processes. Through R & D UCL were the first to develop successful technology of single layer double thick All-PP Capacitor in LT range.
Capacitors are type tested as per IEC / ISS (IS-13925) in CRPI Laboratory at Bangalore (NABL accredited, laboratory of Govt of India)
