SCHURTER ASO solar fuses available from Koloona Industries now meet both IEC 60269-6 and UL 2579 standards for the protection of photovoltaic systems.
Specifically designed for the protection of photovoltaic equipment, ASO solar fuses safeguard PV modules and conductors from reverse overcurrent conditions.
The increasing size of solar panel systems is correspondingly matched by the increase in voltage requirements. The increase in system voltage is intended to minimise power loss associated with long conductor runs.
Standard circuit protection devices are not designed to completely protect solar panels. ASO solar fuses are UL listed to safely interrupt faulty circuits up to demanding voltage levels.
SCHURTER offers ASO solar fuses in 13 different ampere ratings to match specific requirements of various applications such as inverter chargers and battery charger modules. A PCB version with bolted contacts is also available on request.
SCHURTER also supplies suitable touch-safe fuse holders and fuse clips.
