REOWAVEpassive – harmonic filter 60 Hz/480V (IP20)


Reduce Harmonics – save up to 30% energy costs.
The REOWAVE®passive filters harmonics caused by the B6 circuit (thyristor, diode bridge, etc.) and motor drives. The supply network is relieved by compensating the harmonics reactive power. This enables cost savings in material selection and energy consumption. Starting currents and current peaks are greatly attenuated.This increases the service life and reliability of electrical systems. Due to the compact and ready-build an easy installation is possible. The REOWAVE®passive helps to comply with international power quality standards IEEE 519 or EN 61000-3.


What’s more, REOWAVE®passive can be supplied to the basic equipment as REOWAVE®passive Plus, including the following additional options:
• Traffic-light function
• Temperature monitoring
• Potential-free signal contacts
• Switching off of the filter function in the event of an error
• Switching off/on of the filter circuit to optimise the reductive power

The options should help to better control the grid quality and issue messages to the control centre in the event of faults, meaning you have full control of your power consumption and increase operating safety at the same time.
