A token of appreciation from Action Care

Phoenix Contact Middle East has been extending its support to Action Care for more than five years now. From events like the big annual gala dinner to smaller ones, Phoenix Contact team has voluntarily taken the initiative to participate at various occasions, to help support less privileged people in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia.
Additionally, the Action Care Gala Dinner celebrates humanitarian causes that Action Care and its partners supports in the region. Just like in previous years, Phoenix Contact sponsored the gala dinner in 2015 and joined in celebrating the milestones reached, lives changed, and friendships discovered along the way.

Footprints of Lightning Strikes

Lightning strikes in systems

Lightning strikes in systems

Lightning strikes may cause devastating damage to buildings and facilities. Depending on the energy, there is massive destruction or damage, which may cause not so obvious, yet consequential cumulative destruction. Lastly, additional risk persists for high, large or exposed located structures.

The Lightning Monitoring System LM-S from Phoenix Contact captures lightning strikes and also analyzes the peak current, specific energy and charge of lightning surge currents. It consists of sensors for the down conductors of a lightning protection system and the analyzer. This data is easily accessible via the integrated web interface at any time from any place. It provides lightning strike information of the facility and enables preventive maintenance. Based on data from the LM-S system, measures take place quickly in order to avoid consequential damage and downtime. Taking this into consideration, maintenance or service work will be unnecessary as long as the effect is noncritical.

Burj Khalifa - Lightning Strikes Prevention - LMSIn structures that are not significantly prone to but have lightning-related sites, LM-S comes in handy for lightning research.

Phoenix Contact Lightning Monitoring System is installed on world-famous buildings such as Burj Khalifa.

SOLARCHECK RSD – Photovoltaic Panel Shutdown

SOLARCHECK RSD from Phoenix Contact makes working on photovoltaic systems so safe.

Solarcheck rsd

SOLARCHECK RSD consists of units for shutting down the individual photovoltaic panels and startup units, which are used to restart the system. Each shutdown unit disconnects the corresponding panel from the string group. The disconnection takes place automatically in the event of a fault and each time the inverter is shut down. The maximum value for the entire DC side of the photovoltaic system is then in the range of the safety extra-low voltage. There is no risk of an electric shock.
