Intelligent photovoltaic panel shutdown with SOLARCHECK RSD  

Work safely on photovoltaic systems with SOLARCHECK RSD

The new SOLARCHECK RSD automatic photovoltaic panel shutdown from Phoenix Contact independently puts photovoltaic systems into a safe state.

Personnel are protected from electric shock during installation and maintenance or in dangerous situations. In 95 percent of photovoltaic systems the panels are connected to strings in series. This can generate potentially lethal DC voltages of up to 1000 V. Disconnection can be difficult. This requires global safety regulations for protection against electric shock when working with electrical equipment above 120 V DC. Shutdown via the inverter or additional DC switches interrupts the current flow but not the voltage. Occupational health and safety can only be guaranteed if each individual panel is disconnected automatically. SOLARCHECK is a self-controlling system that shuts down every photovoltaic panel automatically in the event of a fault or servicing. By disconnecting each individual panel, a safe state is achieved without intervention by an electrician. Even those who are not familiar with the safety rules and dangers, such as roofers or cleaning personnel, are protected.
