The First Comprehensive Portfolio of 1500VDC PV Components from Mersen

Mersen 1500vdc solar offerMersen has introduced in the marketplace the first comprehensive portfolio of PV components rated for 1500VDC applications.

These applications are utility-scale ones mainly in solar farms.

In their global differentiating platform of passive components, Mersen Electrical Power offer a wide offering of solution branded  HelioProtection® for solar PV market . It encompasses gPV fuses and holders (from 600VDC up to 1500VDC rating), DC switches and Surge Protective Devices.

Since Intersolar Europe 2015 Mersen have launched in the market:
•    New 1500VDC-rated blade-style gPV fuses for direct bolt mounting onto standardized power busbars. These new gPV solutions can be optionally fitted with a striker enabling a remote control capability via a microswitch. With this option the customer benefits from both shorter time of mounting and remote control feature.
•    New HP15M cylindrical gPV fuses with 10x85mm dimensions. These fuses are approved by both IEC (60269-6) and UL ( Listed UL2579) standards. For combiner box application it is recommended to mount these fuses onto brand-new US15M1HEL holders.
•    New STPT2-40K1500V-YPV(M) Surge-Trap® SPD. All Surge-Trap® Pluggable PV solutions are reversible and they include the optimized dynamic thermal disconnection system. The 1500VDC SPD does therefore not require any back-up fuse, just like the 600VDC and 1000VDC models of the same series.
