FCS Capacitor Switch


The Farady’s new generation FCS capacitor switch is a long mechnical life design vacuum switch that provides an operational life of over 100,000 (30,000open/close) maintenance-free operations.

Using the FCS will result in substantial savings from reduced maintenance and maximized bank uptime and will also improve Power Quality.

The FCS all comply with relative standard ANSI C37.66/IEC60071
