Supply, protection, and monitoring in the residential building
Digitalization has also been making its way into private residential buildings for a long time. The large number of intelligent devices used here must be supplied reliably with power. In addition, appropriate protection for sensitive loads is recommended. At the same time, electrification is increasing the energy consumption in residential buildings. Detailed monitoring and analysis of the data help to counteract this and to operate the building as efficiently as possible. COMPLETE line provides you with systemic solutions for the supply, protection, and monitoring of energy in residential buildings.
The FLASHTRAB type 1+2+3 combined lightning current and surge arrester reliably protects electrical installations against overvoltage. The optional remote signaling module with digital output signals tripping and maintenance requirements.
Sockets for DIN rail mounting in the rail-mounted-device format enable direct connection of 230 V devices to the main distribution board.
For devices with a cable length distance of more than 10 m from the protected main distribution, an additional micro-protection unit is recommended.
In particular in outdoor areas, loads such as wall boxes, outdoor lighting, pumps, and photovoltaic systems must be protected against overvoltage. In some cases, these devices are already equipped with surge protection ex-works; in other cases, an on-site extension is required.
Photovoltaic systems require both AC and DC-side protection. Fully prefabricated string combiner boxes simplify the connection considerably. Special photovoltaic connectors also enable a secure connection.
DC voltage is often used to power electrical door systems, alarm systems, notification systems, and other security and convenience systems. For this purpose, the conversion of the AC voltage is necessary. Historically, different systems require different voltage levels. STEP POWER power supplies provide solutions in finely graduated power classes for all of these.
The use of a DC UPS reliably prevents the failure of electrical systems. With its rail-mounted-device construction, the STEP POWER DC UPS is designed for the requirements in the subdistribution system.
As the number of electrical loads increases, so does the potential for energy optimization, and thus the need for monitoring. EMpro energy measuring devices, which can be integrated into the corresponding networks via various interfaces, are suitable for this purpose.
