Capacitors for Lighting

General Information

Gruppo Energia lighting capacitor series LCP (plastic case) and LCM (aluminium case) are designed to improve the power factor of discharge lamps:

  • Fluorescent lamps;
  • Metal iodide lamps;
  • High pressure sodium lamps (HPS);
  • Low pressure sodium lamps;
  • Mercury-vapor.

These lamps require magnetic ballasts and transformers for ignition and for current limitation during discharge. The improvement of the power factor is achieved by the installation of a capacitor of adequate capacitance into the light fitting.

LCP-LCM series capacitors have been designed and developed in accordance with the most updated manufacturing technology available.

Standards:

  • DIN EN 61048 (VDE 0560-61): 2016-11; EN 61048: 2016

Origin: 100% made in Italy
