KACO new en­ergy equips in­vert­ers with ad­di­tional safety func­tion

Power Watch India - - EQUIPMENT WATCH -

In­creased mea­sures against over­volt­age will be re­quired from pho­to­voltaic sys­tems in fu­ture. In preparation for this, Ger­man in­verter man­u­fac­turer, KACO new en­ergy GmbH, is ex­tend­ing its prod­uct range in the medium power class. Three in­vert­ers are equipped as stan­dard for fit­ting with over­volt­age pro­tec­tion of Type 1+2.

To pro­tect pho­to­voltaic sys­tems against dam­age caused by over­volt­age, KACO new en­ergy GmbH of­fers three in­vert­ers with the cor­re­spond­ing safety func­tion. These in­vert­ers are sup­plied as stan­dard with an SPD (Surge Pro­tec­tion De­vice) socket. The ap­pro­pri­ate de­vice for over­volt­age pro­tec­tion can be fit­ted into the socket as re­quired. Type 1+2 SPDs are also avail­able to or­der from KACO new en­ergy. In­stallers can eas­ily and safely in­sert them into the SPD socket as a plug-and-play so­lu­tion when in­stalling the in­verter. Two of the in­vert­ers are the ex­ist­ing mod­els, Powador 12.0 TL3 and blue­planet 20.0 TL3, and will be avail­able as SPD ver­sions from March 2017 on­wards. The third in­verter is the new blue­planet 15.0 TL3, which will be sup­plied with the pre-fit­ted socket from its mar­ket launch in July 2017. If the de­ci­sion for pro­tec­tion against over­volt­age is only made af­ter ini­tial in­stal­la­tion, the com­bined SPD fit­ting can also be or­dered and retro­fit­ted later. There is also no down­side for buy­ers if the surge pro­tec­tion de­vice is not used: the socket is in­cluded at no ad­di­tional charge. With this move, the Ger­man in­verter man­u­fac­turer is ex­tend­ing its range of prod­ucts which in­te­grate over­volt­age pro­tec­tion: In­vert­ers of higher power classes, up to 60 kilo­watts, have al­ready been avail­able in SPD ver­sions for some time.
