BVX Special Purpose CapacitorType BVX capacitors are convenient for smoothing the spikes generated by SCR's. All have low inductance and use low-loss dielectric film. All oil seal locations are soldered, assuring trouble free operation. The type BVX capacitors are designed for demanding usage in the electrical industry, to take the "Peak" off of an SCR's pulse, especially for large horsepower motor controls. Al items in this series are low inductance, use polypropylene film dielectric. Liquid impregnant has a flash point greater than 200ºC.
Capacitance Tolerance is ±10% of nominal value; closer tolerance available on special order. Standard 10% value is not marked on capacitors.
GraphTemperature Range is -55ºC to 75ºC with nameplate voltage applied. Storage temperature range is -55ºC to 90ºC.
Test Voltage: A DC test voltage range equal to 200% of the rated peak AC voltage for 1 minute, at 25ºC.
Design Life of type BVX capacitors, is 40,000 hours at 65ºC. A suitable life test is the application of a DC voltage equal to 140% of the peak AC voltage for 1,000 hours at 65ºC ambient temperature. Compliance is indicated with less than 2 failures in a sample lot of 12.Graph
Power Factor will not exceed .03% over the operating temperatures range, measured at 1KHz.
Mounting: Capacitors are designed to be mounted in any position.
Case Construction: Cases are drawn oval cans, made of terneplated steel. The cover is double-roll seamed and soldered. Soldering avoids the problems encountered with sealant-gasket techniques. The case is painted with grey lacquer.
Terminals: Are glazed steatite, with all sealing points metallized and solder sealed. No gaskets are used, avoiding potential leakage problems. Studs are electro tinned brass, 1/4-20 threads.
Torque: On terminals should not exceed 20 pound-inches.
Brackets: Footed mounting brackets are available at extra charge.
