Merus® 4DRIVES is an optimized active harmonic filter for Variable Frequency Drives (VFD). It is our simple solution to complex power quality problems.
Casinos have a particularly high concentration of non-linear loads such as slot machines, electronic table machines, and table games. Operating continuously 24 hours a day, these non-linear loads are prone to power quality issues. High harmonic current and voltage distortion can cause significant energy losses, premature equipment failure, and data corruption, which lead to high machine payouts.
Power disturbances and outages not only negatively affect gaming operations and gambling revenue, but the security of the facility gets compromised as well. Power quality is an extremely important matter to consider in casino design and operations. Improved power quality and energy efficiency minimize game downtime, protect the functionality of sensitive gaming machinery, and decrease the chance of potential data and revenue losses.
