Littelfuse Surge Protection Solutions by GD Rectifiers

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.
