Surge Capacitor AC 125/250vac

Surge capacitors function differently from surge arrestors. They begin to conduct at a voltage above normal line voltage after a specific time delay. Capacitors conduct current at normal line voltage continually, therefore there is no time delay or voltage change before capacitors begin to conduct. A surge arrestor or suppressor might act in as little as five nanoseconds. A surge capacitor reacts continually, therefore the response time is zero. An arrestor or suppressor might react to as little as a ten percent increase in voltage. A capacitor will react to any increase in voltage. Surge capacitors can handle fast low energy surges that can get by an MOV, a surge arrestor, or a surge suppressor. Delta surge arrestors/suppressors can handle high current surges that are too large for an MOV, a surge arrestor, or a surge suppressor. Use of both the Delta surge arrestor/suppressor and the Delta surge capacitor will provide more complete protection. While it is not possible to achieve 100%protection, Delta units will greatly reduce problems due to lightning, power surges, and voltage spikes.
