Success with Active Harmonic Filters

VAR Services Ltd has a wide range of experience in solving harmonic related problems for our industrial and commercial customers using Active and Passive Harmonic Filters. As the use of switch-mode power supplies increases, our business has expanded in to other sectors such as Data Centres, Universities and Healthcare Trusts.

VAR Services want to offer our customers reliable products with UK technical based support and to that end we have built up a strong relationship with Danfoss VLT Drives: VAR are an approved Power Quality Competence Centre for Danfoss

Increased Power Quality Monitoring Capability

Power Quality monitoring is an important part of our business offer and over recent years demand has increased for this type of work. VAR have now purchased our forth Fluke 1750 Power Quality analyser. The Fluke 1750 meets the requirements of the IEC 61999-1-4 Class 1, IEC 61000-4-30 & EN50160. As well as measuring the levels of Harmonic Distortion, the 1750 will capture Voltage Transients, Swells & Dips with a date / time stamp to the nearest cycle. Our Flukes have been used successfully on numerous occasions for multi-point disturbance capture.

Safety First – SafeContractor and Constructionline

At VAR Services Ltd we take safety seriously, whether visiting customer sites or carrying out monitoring or service work. To ensure the use of safe working practices, our engineers attend the Safety Pass Alliance (SPA) health & safety course, as part of the Passport to Safety Scheme. This has proved of particular interest to our customers in the Food industry as the scheme incorporates a specific food safety element. VAR Services are also part of the SSIP Scheme gained by accreditation through SafeContractor and we are externally audited on an annual basis.

As many organisations in the public and private sectors are now looking for pre-qualification from their suppliers we are pleased to announce our membership of the Constructionline scheme.
