Motor Running & Motor Starting Capacitors KNM

Applications
Motor running capacitors type KNM are designed for obtaining an auxiliary phase in singlephase and in three-phase motors connected to a single phase. The capacitors provide a starting moment of 25 % to 30 % of rated moment. The approximate values of capacitors with the respect to motor power are given on the draft below.

Motor running capacitor The capacitor is connected for the entire time the motor is in operation.

Motor starting capacitor The capacitor is connected in series with the auxiliary motor winding only, it operates for short periods of time (3 s max.) and is automatically switched off using a centrifugal switch or electromagnetic relay as soon as the motor has built up speed.

Design
Motor running capacitors type KNM70xx, KNM80xx and KNM90xx are made of metallized polypropylene film. The protection against climatic and mechanical influence is reached by using aluminium can and thermoplastic cover as a casing. The capacitors are impregnated with plant oil (non PCB) and protected with a mechanical disconnector. The leads are designed as soldering tags, two-wire cable lead and single or double fast-on tags.

Design
Motor running capacitors type KNM12xx, KNM22xx and KNM32xx are made of metalized polypropylene film. The protection against climatic and mechanical influences is reached by using prismatic plastic case sealed with epoxy resin. The case and the resin are selfextinguishing. Leads are designed as tinned copper wire or insulated copper wires. Note: Capacitors KNM12xx, KNM22xx and KNM32xx can be used also for other purposes, such as in industrial electronics in electronics circuits where capacitors are lower pulse loaded.

The mechanical and climatic protection is provided by aluminium can and thermoplastic washer (type KNF50xx) or plastic can (type KNF61xx). The type KNF50xx is also protected with the mechanical disconnector. The metallized version provides selfhealing properties. This design assures long life and reliable operation. The terminals are on the top of the capacitors in the form of soldering tags which can be used for soldering the contact wires or as the contact terminals for the screwless connector. The following types of capacitors are available: - with the incorporated discharging resistor - with the fixing bolt on the bottom of the capacitor - QUICK-FIT fixing lugs - with the screwless connector

Compliance with standards:

The Iskra capacitors type KNF do not contain any PCB or PCN
