Full range of Class B earth leakage protection and monitoring units

 CIRCUTOR extends the range for total earth leakage protection

All protection elements installed upstream must have the same or higher rating than those installed downstream, never lower, in order to guarantee the correct operation of the selective classification process. Therefore, if Class B is the maximum protection level of an element, a class A or AC unit cannot be installed downstream.

CIRCUTOR's range of Class B earth leakage protection units covers all the protection levels in your installation.

Why install Class B solutions?

Installing Class B earth leakage protection units ensures the safety of individuals and correct functioning for alternating current (AC), direct current (DC) or mixed current (AC/DC) intensities up to frequencies of 1 kHz.

Type A and AC earth leakage protection units do not detect smooth residual direct currents. Moreover, Type A units become more sensitive when a pulsating earth leakage current is accompanied by an smooth direct current. In these cases, protection is not as effective and compromises the expected safety levels.

CIRCUTOR Heavy Duty Capacitor: Consolidated strength

For twenty years CIRCUTOR has been using gas impregnation technology which, together with other advances, provides the capacitors with what are known in the market as HEAVY DUTY features.

The capacitors permanently support 1.8 times the rated current, reaching 2.5 times RC, and can reach an inrush current of up to 400 times RC.

Class D of the IEC-60831, the low voltage capacitor manufacturing standard, sets a maximum working value of 55ºC, but the strength of the CIRCUTOR Heavy Duty capacitor enables capacitors to work in extreme temperature conditions, occasionally supporting up to 65ºC, with this being another key feature in ensuring 150,000 h of useful life. All these features make CIRCUTOR Heavy Duty capacitors highly resistant and long lasting.

Huge interest for energy efficiency at Expo Eléctrica Internacional 2014 Mexico

From 10 to 12 June, CIRCUTOR took part, as it does every year, in Expo Eléctrica Internacional 2014 Mexico, with good attendance from the public and a huge amount of interest in energy efficiency.

Special interest was shown in CIRCUTOR's new products, specifically the new Computer SMART III power factor regulator with power analyzer, and the new CVM-B 100/150 state-of-the-art power analyzers, the CVM-C10 compact power analyzer for panels and the CVM-C5 multi-function multimeter.

Visitors were also interested in CIRCUTOR's portable power analyzers as well as the CLZ-FP capacitors, due to its forthcoming manufacture in Mexico, with exclusive CIRCUTOR technology.

The market is also eagerly awaiting the imminent publication of the energy reform plan and therefore there was a lot of interest in self-consumption solar photovoltaic installations. Although there is still a high level of ignorance concerning the possible economic savings that these systems can achieve, numerous professionals are already interested in their benefits and installation.

CDP-0: An essential element in any photovoltaic self-consumption installation

Constant increases in energy prices are leading more and more people to want to install a self-generation system with solar photovoltaic energy in their house or business to reduce energy dependence and reduce their current energy-consumption costs.

In 2013 CIRCUTOR developed the concept of the Dynamic Power Controller, an element that ensures zero injection to the mains. This has allowed CIRCUTOR to position itself as a leading company in the marketing of self-consumption systems and solutions.

Today, the CDP-0 has become an essential element in any photovoltaic self-consumption installation. In line with its objective of constant improvement, CIRCUTOR has now brought the version 2 of the CDP-0 firmware to market, which includes new features such as:

  • Ability to manage the major inverter brands
  • Web monitoring (smartphone, tablet or PC)
  • Ability to manage several inverters in a single installation
  • Double protection against network injection
  • Ability to download the *.csv file with historical data on consumption and generation via the Web

The new version of the CDP-0 firmware is available free of charge and allows users to update their units to incorporate these new features. Units sold from now on will come with this new version by default.

These new features have made the CDP-0 a useful element for installations with small consumption (homes, second residences and service buildings) and large consumption (companies and medium-sized industries with the space available to install photovoltaic generation systems).

Manage and control the maximum demand with the new MDC series

Due to the constant increase of the electricity price, all types of customers must find new formulas to reduce their electricity bill. To succeed in this, we are presenting our new power management system to control the maximum demand: MDC series (MDC 4 and MDC 20)

FNov MDC

The main objective of the new CIRCUTOR MDC series is to manage and control the maximum demand of an installation. To achieve this objective, the device connects and disconnects some loads (non-critical ones) to ensure that the maximum demand will never be higher than the contracted power, avoiding electricity bill surprises. Moreover, the extended MDC 20 range, allows a tariff control to adjust the loads for being connected on periods with lower price, avoiding high consumptions due to loads simultaneity during high tariff price periods.

Renewable energies - Self-consumption: technologies and practical guides

The fall in the cost of solar photovoltaic installations, along with the increased cost of electrical energy incurred by end users in recent years has accelerated the installation of renewable energy generating installations. In particular, photovoltaic generation systems are being installed as a result of their lower cost, modular nature and easy installation.

In these articles, we explain the most common technical solutions, including photovoltaic kits, as well as the technical and legal guidelines to ensure a safe and profitable installation.
