Product Information:

Surge arresters for use in photovoltaic systems with ‘U’ connection. Protects both poles.

Features:

  • Pluggable module
  • Visual fault signalling
  • Module locking
  • Remote fault signalling

Benefits: Ideal for use with photovoltaic systems where the separating spark-over distance is without a Lightning Protection system.

Standards: BS:EN 62305 (Lightning Protection) and EN 61643-11 (Surge Protection Devices).

Application: Use on Photovoltaic Systems up to 560 volts.

More Information:

Photovoltaic (PV) arrays and their associated equipment are expensive assets to purchase and so the need to protect them from the effects of lightning is of paramount importance.

Kingsmill has a range of Earthing, Structural Lightning Protection, and Surge Protection products that can be used to provide protection against both the direct and indirect effects of lightning. Products relating to Earthing and Structural Lightning Protection are dealt with in their respective sections.
