Matrix Filters®

Product Overview
MTE Matrix Filters solve the problem of harmonic distortion on virtually any kind of six pulse rectifier. These power supplies are commonly found in three phase electronic equipment such as adjustable speed motor drives, welders, battery chargers, servo drives and other equipment.

Harmonics are a problem
Harmonic distortion has become an increasing concern for facility managers, users of automation equipment and specifying engineers alike. Harmonics not only waste energy, but they reduce equipment life, electrical system reliability, system efficiency and equipment productivity.

Guaranteed results
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) all the way from no load to 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.

Typical Applications Include:

    Mission critical facilities
    AC variable frequency drives
    DC adjustable speed drives
    Electronic welders
    Battery chargers
    Fans and Pumps
    Water Treatment Facilities
    Induction heating equipment
    Elevator drives
    3-phase power supplies
    Any 6-pulse rectifier

    Meets International power quality standards
    such as:
    IEEE-519, G5/4, AS2279,EN61000

    UL Listed (UL-508)
    Matrix Harmonic filters are UL listed (File E180243) for both USA and Canada. Convert 6-pulse Drives to Multi-pulse Harmonic Performance
    Matrix filters allow users to achieve attenuation of harmonics to levels below that previously attainable only by using 12-pulse or 18-pulse rectification methods. Use standard 6-pulse drives and our MD & M5 seriesMatrix Filters in place of 18-pulse rectifiers and use our M8 Series in lieu of 12-pulse rectifiers.

    Guard-AC reactors are manufactured to the exacting standards of MIL-I-45208, VDE-0550, are UL recognized and CSA certified. All UL approvals are for USA and Canada.
    · CSA File #LR29753, open units up to 2400A
    · UL-508 File #E180243, open and enclosed up to 2400A
    All higher current reactors offer UL recognized insulation systems and construction.
