NEW! HPS TruWave Active Harmonic Filter
The new HPS TruWave combines advanced control and proven reliability to provide a comprehensive and flexible solution for harmonic mitigation.

HPS TruWave is designed to achieve total harmonic distortion, or THD, ≤ 5%, while requiring minimal impedance on the line side of a variable frequency drive (VFD). It provides compliance to ANSI/IEEE Standard 519-2014 requirements as well as other stringent power quality standards.

It offers excellent performance and its application does not require detailed knowledge regarding the nature of the load(s) or the type of harmonics present. The AHF responds to the exact system needs as they develop. The degree of the load current distortion, determines the magnitude, as well as the order of harmonics, that drives the dynamic output of the filter.
