Eaton Electric Systems supplies the PVD series of solar cell surge diverters designed to protect home and industrial solar panel arrays commonly used in grid interactive solar power systems.
Suitable for solar panel systems in the 1.5kW to 5kW range, Eaton’s photovoltaic surge diverters are used for 500, 600 and 1000VDC solar panel arrays commonly found in grid-interactive systems.
PVD series surge diverters are designed to protect the DC input side of grid-interactive inverters from harmful transients that can appear on the output of solar arrays, especially when they are located on roofs or other high infrastructure locations.
Compliant with IEC61643-1 and UL1449 ed3 standards, the PV surge diverters are available in three models to suit 500, 600 and 1000VDC systems.
The surge diverters are suitable for use in standalone and grid-interactive solar array systems.
Key features of PVD series surge diverters:
- 2-mode plug-in protection
- 40kA surge suppression rating
- Compact modular solution
- 2-unit and 3-unit DIN43880 case
- 36mm and 54mm DIN-rail mount
- Floating contact alarm output
