Common features

The power factor correction Elcontrol panels are internally designed and manufactured not only in their power side, but the same regulator PFR96 is a 100% Elcontrol product. This allows Elcontrol to adapt its panels to the most demanding applications with specific steps up to ad hoc command firmware. The willingness to carry out preventive measures campaigns with their NANOVIP, completes the picture of the professional services offered by Elcontrol to its customers.

ARCM serie panles are structured with standard power steps that allows system to be easily improved just adding new steps
