Capacitors for Motors

Capacitors for Motors

General Information

Gruppo Energia motor run and motor start capacitors are designed for continuous duty and for starting single phase induction motors, respectively.

Motor run capacitors are an essential part of every HVAC system. They store and release energy in less than a couple of seconds. These capacitors significantly improve the efficiency of the motor: they support the blower motor, the condenser fan motor and/or the compressor of a HVAC system.

For these reasons, the choice of motor capacitors cannot be left to chance and must be carefully taken to avoid any possible overheating of the auxiliary winding. Gruppo Energia can manufacture capacitors according to your specific needs.

Standards:

  • DIN EN 60252-1 (VDE 0560-8): 2014-07; EN 60252-1: 2014

UL certification available

Origin: 100% made in Italy
