Tier 500 Dynamic Power Factor Correction

The Tier 500 Dynamic Power Factor Correction features a patent pending controller that actively monitors power and engages the precise amount of correction in less than one cycle; its unique design not only responds within microseconds, it sequences and engages components in a way that minimizes stress on both the product and electrical network. There is no better product to increase your system capacity, lower your utility bills, improve your power quality and efficiency, and reduce your carbon footprint.

The 4 patent pending technologies in the STT Tier 500 PFC unit allow our product to offer the same amount of power factor correction as our competitors at 1/4 of the size. This allows our units to be retrofitted to areas where our competitors units will not fit, closer to disruptive loads, and can offer 4 times as much power factor correction in the same amount of space!

Our patent pending dynamic switching technology does not only greatly reduce the size of our units, but also the operating costs and generated heat. The Tier 500 PFC operates on only 40 Watts, compared to our competition that operates nearly 1,500 Watts, the Tier 500 PFC saves operating costs and further increases plant capacity, whereas the operating costs of our competitors often offsets their cost savings and capacity increases. This makes the payback on our unit only 1-4 years(based on your utility’s reactive energy charge) in comparison to over 10 years payback for the competitors’ units.

Save money, increase system capacity, and reduce my carbon footprint with Dynamic Power Factor Correction. Our Tier 500 unit delivers the most efficient operating costs, intelligent monitoring and control, and the fastest and most precise corrective response in the industry. It accomplishes this with dynamic switching, sub-cycle response time, 40 watt power usage, electronic & text alerts, remote monitoring and control over ethernet/internet and programmable auto-disconnect with alarms, and a system sequencer. Our patent pending Dynamic Switching Technology allows our units to be 97% more efficient, have greatly reduced heat generation, and are 1/4 the size of competitors for the same amount of power factor correction.
