Hammond Power Solutions is now offering remote demonstrations in the HPS Power Quality Lab. Experience real-time testing of line and load side HPS power quality products via their virtual video system. It would be great to have you in person, but if travel logistics are an obstacle please consider arranging a virtual HPS PQ Lab visit. Arrange your visit
The HPS Power Quality Lab allows customers to experience real time testing of line side HPS power quality products such as transformers, line reactors, active harmonic filters and passive harmonic filters as well as load side products such as load reactors and different types of dV/dT filters with various cable lengths. The power quality products can run at full load using either 10HP, 25HP and 100HP VFD systems and associated motor/load.
For customers who are not able to visit the HPS PQ lab in person, HPS offers virtual demonstrations via a video monitoring system. Cameras are set up in the lab to allow customers to get the full experience of a demonstration, including interaction with our HPS power quality experts.

The HPS Centurion™ P passive harmonic filter already employs a low kVAR to HP ratio in its mitigation of harmonics to meet IEEE 519 guidelines. The new capacitor contactor option for the HPS Centurion™ P passive harmonic filter allows users to open and close a contact, removing the filter’s capacitors from the circuit. Typically the user will control the contactor by providing a configurable contact output from a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) which opens at light loads.
