June 2021 - Littelfuse’s Surge Protection for PV Systems
Published on: 07/06/2021
Littelfuse offers a wide range of surge protection solutions
Photovoltaic (PV) systems – just by their nature alone, require surge protection due to the inherent risk of damage from direct or indirect lightning.
In order to protect your solar application from overvoltage, you need to understand the different types of surge protective devices (SPDs) available and their capabilities. Other considerations that could impact protection for your system include: location, elevation, voltage, short-circuit current rating and operating temperature.
Alongside Littelfuse’s LED lighting surge protection modules and type 2 surge protection devices, GD Rectifiers has access to Littelfuse’s semiconductors and circuit protection devices, including: fuses, specialty fuses, resettable PTC fuses, medium voltage fuses, industrial power and UL fuses, varistors and TVS diodes.
