The TÜV Rheinland test institute has certified the photovoltaic string protection fuses from Phoenix Contact.
On the occasion of the Intersolar trade fair in Munich, Germany, Roman Brück, Head of Energy Storage Systems and PV Components at TÜV Rheinland, awarded the certificate for the test specification in accordance with PfG 2380/02.14. “I am pleased to be able to hand over the certificate to Phoenix Contact after the demanding tests”, said Brück.
The subcomponents have been tested in accordance with IEC 62852 (connectors) and IEC 60269-6 (fuse-links) and their safe triggering confirmed. Users can thus be assured that, under the conditions described in the standards, the photovoltaic system is always reliably protected against residual currents.
The robust fuse adapters of the SUNCLIX product family are equipped with high-quality Littelfuse fuse-links for 3.5 to 30 A and are rated for voltages up to 1,500 V. The easy-to-install protective elements are designed in accordance with degree of protection IP68 (24 h / 2 m) and are particularly suited for safe field cabling between the PV panels and inverter.
