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.

    For more information regarding the SPD DC PV installation discover the "SE Electrical Installation Guide"
