The ADF P100 active filter gives you everything in a compact format. Although compact and cost-effective, the ADF P100 features the same excellent cutting-edge performance as its bigger ADF P300 family member.
Like its bigger brother, the ADF P100 is ultra-efficient and easy to use. However the wall mounted format gives a more cost-effective packaging and allows the use of ADF technology in applications the ADF P300 cannot access.
The ADF P100 has a nominal compensation current of 70 to 130 A RMS (three wire, 480V), 100 A RMS (four wire, 415V), and 90 A RMS (three wire, 690V). It is available in the voltage ranges 208 - 690 V RMS nominal, four wire up to 415 V RMS. The tall and narrow design allows the ADF P100 to be used in applications where space is at a premium.
The ADF P100 can be commissioned using the Web User Interface (WUI) called ADF Dashboard. No special software needs to be installed on the laptop to perform commissioning, all that is needed is a laptop with an ethernet port and an ethernet cable and a recent web browser.
The new optional HMI-3 provides a graphical interface for commissioning, operation and systems management. Standard equipment is an indicator button which can start and stop the system. The HMI-3 is a new, optional, graphical HMI with color touch screen display.
In addition to the WUI, you can interface to the standard hardware using Modbus TCP (license key is required). You can start/stop the system, read out power quality data, and change control parameters and settings via fieldbus. The flexible functionality allows integration to overlying control such as a PLC or SCADA systems. The overlying system can change control parameters, or change compensation sets on the fly. This is useful in for example marine- and generator applications.
Other fieldbus interfaces (such as Profibus, Profinet) are available on request.

Case Stories where ADF P100 have been used
Due to the space available onboard Seihav, Fitjar Mekaniske needed a filter solution that would be able to fit into to the main engine room, which can often exceed 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). At temperatures this high, there is a risk of equipment overheating and/or malfunction.
Without a power quality solution, Sandvik experienced unplanned stops and equipment breakdowns. The control systems for overhead cranes were especially prone to issues and breakdowns, resulting in costly disruptions to production and the need for component replacement.
The primary power quality concern for Bourbon was compliance with the Bureau Veritas (BV) class requirement. The BV requirement demanded the ships to have a voltage THD (total harmonic distortion) of 5% in all operating conditions, even during the energy intensive process of DP.
Due to current limitations during operation, Arkticheskaya struggled with multiple harmonic disturbances and insufficient current, leaving Gazprom flot unable run the operation at full capacity.
As the delousing vessels, do not travel above three knots, they are not subject to conventional maritime power quality regulations. However, as there are many drives onboard controlling multiple pumps, the risk was that their collective load would generate a high level of harmonics.
