Product Announcement from MTE Corporation
Harmonic distortion has become an increasing concern for
power companies, industrial, and residential users of electrical (especially electronic) equipment and specifying engineers alike. Harmonics
disrupt communication equipment, degrade electronic reliability, reduce system efficiency and equipment productivity.
Advanced Patented Harmonics solution provides best value and highest protection
Matrix Single Phase filters allow users to achieve superior attenuation of harmonics when used with single phase drives or 4 pulse
power supplies. The new patent pending reactor optimizes the technology for smaller packaging requiring less floor or panel
space than other filter schemes. Matrix filters, provide protection against voltage spikes that could cause over voltage tripping or
damage to input power components while preventing current harmonics from adversely affecting upstream circuit breakers,
fuses, conductors, and transformers.
Unlike other harmonic filter technologies, the performance of MTE Matrix
Harmonic Filters is guaranteed! On AC variable frequency, variable
torque drive applications (fans & pumps), Matrix filters will meet the guaranteed maximum levels of THID (total harmonic current distortion) at full
load. Additionally, Matrix filters will not cause power system resonance
nor attract harmonics from other non-linear loads. .
No system analysis is required to select and apply Matrix Filters
UL Listed (UL-508)
Matrix Harmonic filters are UL Listed
(File E180243) for both USA and Canada.
Product Selection: See TR-1705 for M1 Matrix Series B selection guides and option details.
Installation Options: Matrix Harmonic Filters are available in a variety of enclosure options. The standard enclosure meets
the requirements of both Nema 1 & Nema 2. The Nema 3R provides weather protection and is available in optional stainless
or galvanized steel construction. Optional Serpent /rodent screens can be added to block small animals from entering
enclosures. For maximum flexibility,Matrix filters are also offered asopen modular constructionforintegration into customer enclosures and panels.
Electrical Options: Various contactor options may be added to provide for load dependent leading KVARcancellation to
enhance compatibility with standby power and support service requirements.
Typical uses include:
Mission critical facilities
AC variable frequency drivesDC adjustable speed drivesElectronic welders
Battery chargersFans and Pumps
Water Treatment Facilities
Induction heating equipment
