MORGAN TECHNICAL CERAMICS: Capacitors

January 21, 2013

This company recently announced the launch of a new range of powerline coupling communication capacitors, which reportedly can provide transmission solutions for high frequency communication signals, such as those used to transfer automatic meter reading (AMR) information and broadband Internet data.

Reportedly introduced to meet demand in the utilities sector, the new AC high-voltage capacitor range has been designed to operate continuously on 24 kV medium-voltage transmission lines, which can be adapted to carry high-frequency communication signals. Installation of the powerline coupling communication capacitors on the transmission lines can effectively couple/decouple data signals to and from the high-voltage line, protecting the data processing equipment from exposure to high system voltage (50/60Hz).

The AC high-voltage capacitor range is manufactured from a high-permittivity, strontium titanate-based, dielectric ceramic, which reportedly provides a negligible change of capacitance with voltage within a small footprint. The products also offer a high self-resonant frequency, allowing them to be used at higher frequency bands.
