The GIT Security Award nominated Phoenix Contact’s Photovoltaic SOLARCHECK RSD panel shutdown as a finalist. Therefore, your Vote counts!
How to ensure electrical safety in photovoltaics systems?
Electrical equipment with voltage of 120 V DC or more must always be disconnected. This is as a general health and safety measure to protect against electric shock. Ideally, it should also be possible to put the photovoltaic systems automatically into a safe state as a result.
SOLARCHECK RSD makes working on photovoltaic systems so safe
SOLARCHECK RSD safely and automatically shuts down your system during installation, maintenance, or in dangerous situations. Photovoltaic rooftop systems generate DC voltages of up to 1000 V, therefore it is not easy to disconnect them on the DC side. If for instance, the system is damaged, this presents a problem. SOLARCHECK RSD automatically switches your system to a safe state. hence protect you from life-threatening electric shocks during installation and maintenance or in dangerous situations.
A jury with representatives from BHE, TÜV, VDMA, ZVEI, integrators, and users decided to nominate the automatic SOLARCHECK RSD photovoltaic panel shutdown as a finalist for the GIT Security Award.
Each year, the Wiley VCH publishing house awards the prize from the GIT Security trade journal for innovative products and systems in safety technology. There are five categories that the products fall under. SOLARCHECK RSD belongs to category B, which covers fire protection, Ex protection, and occupational health and safety.
This product independently puts photovoltaic systems into a safe state. Therefore, it protects personnel against potentially lethal electric shocks during installation and maintenance or in dangerous situations.
We invite all readers and those interested in the GIT Sicherheit journal and the international GIT Security journal to vote.
