Electrocube maintains an extensive line of more than 400 precision UL-recognized and ULC-approved RC Networks designed to prevent or substantially minimize the occurrence of arcing and noise generations in relay and switch contacts. Featuring a wide selection of case configurations with a number of leads, Electrocube RC Networks are manufactured both off-the-shelf and made to custom design specifications for single-phase or three-phase applications from 1 network to 40 networks in a container. Thousands of unique suppression designs eliminate surges produced by relays and solenoids.
How They Work: Single-phase RC Networks, Single-phase Heavy Duty RC Networks, Three-phase RC Networks, Three-phase Heavy Duty RC Networks
Arc suppressing resistor-capacitor (RC) Networks consist of specially designed capacitors and resistors connected in a series. Spark discharges and induced noise are absorbed over a wide range by the accumulation characteristic and impedance of the capacitor, while the RC time constant delays and averages surge voltage and oscillations.
To store surge voltages and current energy and afford protection against inductively induced potentials, RC Networks are:
- Made from dielectric material providing a high degree of voltage withstand strength
- Non-inductive types to ensure a high degree of protection against pulse potentials
- Packaged in cases, which meet or exceed the flammability requirements of UL94VO
- Single-to-multiple combination
- Metals cans and epoxy cases
- Solid and stranded wire leads with varying length and terminations
- DIN Rail available
- CE is available
- Environmental and governmental compliant
- Machine tools
- Motor controllers
- Automated equipment
- Industrial appliances
- Elevators and escalators
