    Acti 9 iPRD-DC-PV

    Surge Protection Devices for Photovoltaic applications

    Withdrawable Surge Arresters Type 2 for Photovoltaic applications to prevent the risks linked to lightning, compliant with IEC/EN 50539-11 :2013

    Acti 9 iPRD-DC-PV
    • Features

      Acti 9 iPRD-DC-PV Surge Protection Devices Type 2 are meant to protect against the overvoltages coming from the lightning strikes:
      - of the PV inverter direct current input
      - and of the photovoltaic panels.
      Maximum steady state voltage: 800 V DC, 1000 V DC
      Maximum discharge current Imax = 40 kA


      Surge Protection Devices should be installed in a switchboard inside the building. If the switchboard is located outside, it must be weatherproof.
