Maxwell Technologies

High Voltage Overview

Fifty years of experience in manufacturing high-voltage capacitors enables Maxwell to be the world’s leading producer of capacitors for use in utility infrastructure. CONDIS® high-voltage grading and coupling capacitors as well as capacitive voltage dividers help ensure safety and reliability in applications involving transmission, distribution and measurement of electrical energy. Our capacitors are typically used in Life Tank and Gas Insulated Switchgear Circuit Breakers for voltage distribution uniformity, Dead Tank Switchgear Circuit Breakers for increasing the breaking power, generator breakers of power plants, as well as Capacitive Voltage Transformers for precise voltage measurement. Key features of our products are first-in-class products’ quality and reliability, excellent electrical & mechanical strength resulting in long lifetime, especially required for tough environments with extreme temperature variations.
