IMPORTANT USER INFORMATION
NOTICE
MTE Series RLW reactors are components designed to improve the reliability of three or
single phase AC adjustable frequency drives, DC drives and a wide variety of other types
of power electronic equipment. In addition they provide input line current harmonic
mitigation and 100 foot long lead protection for inverter fed motors. MTE reactors are
available in a large number of current ratings and a variety of inductance values. The
suitability of a reactor for a specific application must therefore be ultimately determined by
the customer. In no event will MTE Corporation assume responsibility or liability for any
direct or consequential damages resulting from the use or application of reactors. Nor will
MTE Corporation assume patent liability with respect to the use of information, circuits or
equipment described in this instruction manual.

1. IMPORTANT SAFETY NFORMATION WARNING
ONLY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN CAN CARRY OUT THE ELECTRICAL
INSTALLATION OF LINE/LOAD REACTORS
WARNING
High voltage is used in the operation of line/load reactors. Use Extreme caution to avoid contact with high voltage
when operating, installing or repairing equipment containing line/load reactors.
INJURY OR DEATH MAY RESULT IF SAFETY PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT OBSERVED.
Line/load reactors are used in conjunction with inverters, or other electrical equipment that may feedback lethal
voltages. Follow the safety instructions in the equipment used with the reactor in addition to the safety instruction in
this manual.
WARNING
The opening of the branch circuit protective device may be an indication that a fault current has been
interrupted. To reduce the risk of fire or electrical shock, line/load reactors should be examined and
replaced if damaged.
WARNING
An upstream disconnect/protection device must be used as required by the National Electrical Code
(NEC).
WARNING
Even if the upstream disconnect/protection device is open, a drive or inverter down stream of the
line/load reactor may feed back high voltage to the reactor. The inverter or drive safety instructions
must be followed. INJURY OR DEATH MAY RESULT IF THE DRIVE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS ARE
NOT OBSERVED.
WARNING
The frame of line/load reactors must be grounded at least at one of the reactor’s mounting holes.
WARNING
Only spare parts obtained from MTE Corporation or an authorized MTE distributor can be used

RLW Reactor Users Manual
2. INTRODUCTION
This manual was specifically developed to assist in the installation, interconnection and operation of
MTE Corporation Series RLW reactors
This manual is intended for use by personnel experienced in the operation and maintenance of electronic
drives, inverters and similar types of power electronic equipment. Because of the high voltages required by the
equipment connected to line/load reactors and the potential dangers presented by rotating machinery, it is
essential that all personnel involved in the operation and maintenance of line/load reactors know and practice
the necessary safety precautions for this type of equipment. Personnel should read and understand
the instructions contained in this manual before installing, operating or servicing line/load reactors and
the drive to which the reactor is connected.
Upon Receipt of a Reactor:
MTE Line/load Reactors have been subjected to demanding factory tests before shipment. Carefully
inspect the shipping container for damage that may have occurred in transit. Then unpack the filter and
carefully inspect for any signs of damage. Save the shipping container for future transport of the
reactor.
In the event of damage, please contact and file a claim with the freight carrier involved
immediately.
If the equipment is not going to be put into service upon receipt, cover and store the reactor in a clean, dry
location. After storage, ensure that the equipment is dry and that no condensation has accumulated on
the reactor before applying power.
Repair/Exchange Procedure
MTE Corporation requires a Returned Material Authorization Number before it can accept any reactors
that qualify for return or repair. If problems or questions arise during installation, setup, or operation of the filter,
please call us for assistance at:

RLW Reactor Users Manual
Selection & Application Guide
The MTE World reactor (RLW) is an international product that is a low cost line side
alternative to the present line of MTE “RL” line/ load reactors. RLW’s are RMS current rated
impedance devices. Selection is based on the choice of inductance correlated to the
application motor full load amps, voltage and frequency and the number of phases. Use
PB-1101 selection tables to identify corresponding reactor part numbers for the desired
percent impedances. For critical impedance selection based on specific HP or load currents
consult MTE applications engineering.
Single phase applications: The RLW like RL reactors may also be sized to protect single
phase drives. Please see MTE application AN0120 for details
For load side applications use the indicated part number in PB-1101 or contact
MTE application engineering.
Choose the impedance level:
1.5%
Minimum impedance for reduction of low level voltage transients.
RLW reactors may be used as a supplement to already installed reactors.
3%
Helps minimize (95%) most drive nuisance tripping and faults caused by
over voltage and input line disturbances. 3% is typical impedance specified
by most drive manufacturers.
5%
The MTE recommended value to protect drive components from transient
over-voltage prevents (99.9%) nuisance trips and offers limited harmonic
protection to input line power from drive induced harmonics.

Note:
1. The RLW was designed to support global IEC and NEC input VFD drive motor
applications. To gain optimum performance and size advantages use the RLW
selections tables by HP and voltage in PB-1101.
2. RLW output selection is based on 80% of fundamental RLW current capacity for
output load applications up to 100 foot motor leads!
The above cross reference table is based on 480 VAC applications.
* Grey part numbers are NEMA 1-2 and 3R enclosed are not available for sale contact factory.

Reactor Installation
MTE world reactors are available in open construction and in NEMA 1 enclosures. Open reactors are
designed for mounting within an appropriate electrical equipment enclosure. Reactors rated 300
amperes RMS and under are designed for mounting in both a vertical and horizontal position. Larger
reactors must be mounted in a horizontal position typically on the floor of the enclosure. Include the power
dissipation of the reactor along with all the other components located in the enclosure to determine the
internal temperature rise and cooling requirements of the enclosure.
Reactors may be located in any region of the enclosure where the ambient temperature does not exceed
45 degrees C. Allow a minimum side clearances of four (4) inches and vertical clearances of six (6) inches
for proper heat dissipation and access. Do not locate the reactor next to resistors or any other component
with operating surface temperatures above 125 degree C.
Select a well ventilated, dust-free area away from direct sunlight, rain or moisture. Do not install in or near a
corrosive environment. Avoid locations where the reactor will be subjected to excessive vibrations.
NEMA 1 Enclosed world Reactor Installation
MTE RLW reactors mounted in enclosures with part number, CAB-8, are designed for wall mounting.
All other enclosures are designed for floor mounting.
WARNING
MTE NEMA 1 enclosures designed for floor mounting must be mounted with the enclosure base
horizontal for proper ventilation. Wall mounting a floor mounted enclosure with the base
against the wall will cause the reactor to over heat resulting in equipment damage.
Allow a minimum side, front, and back clearances of twelve (12) inches and vertical clearances of
eighteen (18) inches for proper heat dissipation and access. Do not locate the enclosure next to resistors
or any other component with operating surface temperatures above 125 degree C.
Select a well ventilated, dust-free area away from direct sunlight, rain or moisture where the ambient
temperature does not exceed 40 degrees C.
Do not install in or near a corrosive environment.
Avoid locations where the reactor will be subjected to excessive vibrations.
Where desirable, reactors or enclosures may be mounted on vibration isolating pads to reduce audible
noise. Standard vibration control pads made from neoprene or natural rubber and selected for the
weight of the enclosed reactor are effective.

Power Wiring Connection
WARNING
Input and output power wiring to the reactor should be performed by authorized
personnel in accordance with the NEC and all local electrical codes and
regulations.
Verify that the power source to which the reactor is to be connected is in agreement with the nameplate
data on the reactor. A fused disconnect switch or circuit breaker should be installed between the reactor
and its source of power in accordance with the requirements of the NEC and all local electrical codes and
regulations. Refer to the drive, inverter, or other electrical equipment user manual for selection of the correct
fuse rating and class.
The reactor is suitable for use on a circuit capable of delivering not more than 65,000 rms symmetrical
amperes at 480 volts when protected by Bussman type JJS, KTK, KTK-R, SPP or T class fuses.
Reactor are designed for use with copper conductors with a minimum temperature rating of 75 degrees
C. Table 2 lists the wire range and terminal torque requirements for the power input and output
connections by reactor part number.
Refer to Figure 7 for typical electrical diagrams describing the application of reactors in both line and
load applications. For reactors supplied as a component part of a drive system or a component part of
power electronic apparatus follow the interconnection diagram supplied by the System Engineer.
Where desirable, a flexible conduit connection to the reactor enclosure should be made to reduce
audible noise.
WARNING
Failure to connect reactors supplied as a component part of a drive system or other power
electronic system according to the system interconnection diagram supplied by the System
Engineer will result in equipment damage, injury, or death.
WARNING
If a line reactor or a line reactor and a load reactor are used with a drive equipped with a bypass
circuit, the reactors must be removed from the motor circuit in the bypass mode. Damage to the
motor and other equipment will result if this warning is not observed.

Grounding
A stud is provided on enclosed reactors for grounding the enclosure. The enclosure must be
grounded. Open reactors must be grounded at the designated grounding terminal or the
reactor mounting holes if no designated grounding terminal is provided.
WARNING
The frame of line/load reactors must be grounded at the designated grounding terminal or one of the
reactor mounting holes if no designated grounding terminal is provided. The enclosure of reactors
supplied in enclosures must be grounded.
INJURY OR DEATH MAY RESULT IF SAFETY PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT OBSERVED.

STARTUP
Safety Precautions
Before startup, observe the following warnings and instructions:
WARNING
A Reactor is at line potential when the Reactor is connected to the utility. This voltage is
extremely dangerous and may cause death or severe injury if you come in contact with it.
WARNING
High voltage is used in the operation of line/load reactors. Use Extreme caution to avoid
contact with high voltage when operating, installing or repairing equipment
containing reactors. RLW reactors are used in conjunction with inverters, or other
electrical equipment that may feedback lethal voltages.
Follow the safety instructions in the equipment used with the reactor in addition to the safety
instruction in this manual.
INJURY OR DEATH MAY RESULT IF SAFETYPRECAUTIONS ARE NOT OBSERVED.
Sequence of Operation
1. Read and follow safety precautions.
2. After installation, ensure that:
• All Reactor ground terminals are connected to ground.
• Power wiring to the utility, drive and motor is in accordance with the interconnection
diagrams supplied by the System Engineer.
3. Check that moisture has not condensed on the Reactor. If moisture is present, do not
proceed with startup until the moisture has been removed.
4. Proceed with startup according to the instructions provided by the system supplier.
WARNING
