Hello,

I was wondering what the difference is between  Rated power (EF007051) and Rated apparent power (EF008864).

While "power" is generally given in "W", apparent power is given in "VA". However, in this case, both features have the unit "VA" associated to it. If EF007051 (Rated power) has VA as unit, isn't it the apparent power?

Thanks a lot,

Roberto

Hi Roberto, I guess this is basic knowledge about electrics. I found an article at https://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/apparent-power that might help ...

Hello Marc! Thanks for your answer. I'm sorry I didn't ask my question correctly. I'm not looking for the general difference between power / apparent power, but why EF007051 (Rated power) has VA as unit, when VA is the unit used in apparent power. I don't understand the difference between these two features because of the fact that they share the same unit.

Thanks,

Roberto
