As solar power grows in popularity as a source of alternative energy, the requirement for safety has never been greater.
The cells are constantly generating whilst there is daylight, therefore, the inverter needs to be isolated for servicing and repair. To ensure complete safety and peace of mind, fit a Katko DC Safety Switch between the photovoltaic cells and the input to the inverter and an AC Safety Switch between the output of the inverter and the main switchboard.
For increased awareness, and safety, Katko supply the DC switches in grey enclosures with a black padlockable handle and the AC switches in a yellow enclosure with a yellow/red padlockable handle, making it immediately apparent to the end user which switch is DC and which is AC.
Katko’s DC range covers from 6A DC22 at 440V to 200A DC21 at 1000V. Katko’s AC range covers from 16A to 630A.
