Lightning and Surge Protection
VARITECTOR PU PV for more safety
PV systems are directly exposed to environmental influences because they are always installed in exposed locations. Therefore the probability of lightning strikes and resulting overvoltage is high. The components of unprotected PV systems are again and again considerably damaged.
Type I devices are available in 1,000 and 1,500 V DC versions
Type II devices are available in 600, 1,000, 1,200 or 1,500 V DC versions
Optionally with or without a remote signalling contact
The entire product portfolio for photovoltaic systems complies with the current photovoltaic standard EN 50539-11
