Power Factor Correction Modules

Power Factor Correction Modules

The PFCQor® Power Factor Correction module is an essential building block of an AC-DC power supply. Used in conjunction with a hold-up capacitor, SynQor’s high efficiency DC-DC converters and SynQor’s AC line filter, the PFCQor will draw a nearly perfect sinusoidal current (PF>0.99) from a single phase AC input. Up to three PFCQor modules can be paralleled to achieve higher power. The module is supplied completely encased to provide protection from the harsh conditions seen in many industrial and transportation environments.
