When would I need to use the PCS100 SFC?

Perry Field, Global Product Manager

ABB's answer

The PCS100 SFC is an ideal solution for supplying loads with frequency that is different to the utility supply. This is required when manufacturing equipment may be shifted from one country to another which as a different utility frequency. The other main application is supplying power to docked vessels, as these are typically 60Hz whereas many countries are 50Hz.
