Product description

GRIDCON® ACF Building version is a 4-wire device. If necessary, currents in the neutral conductor can be filtered at up to three times the rated current. Moreover, the device is very compact. If requested by the customer, it can also meet very stringent EMC standards for use in residential environments. Outside industrial environments, power quality is often specifically improved in a decentralized manner in the sub-distributions:

  • 4-wire device with up to three times the neutral conductor current
  • Operation up to 415 V +10% at full power without derating
  • Rated current can be extended in a modular manner in small units from 60 A to 300 A
  • High power density and extremely compact design
  • Low losses
  • Degree of protection up to IP 21 possible
  • Dynamic compensation of reactive power, harmonics, and flicker, as well as load balancing and neutral conductor relief in one unit







GRIDCON® ACF Building version is particularly at home in these Areas:

  • Offices and commercial buildings
  • Renewable energy
  • Data centers
  • Hospitals
