Citel DS50PVS-600/51 SPD, PV, type 2, 600VDC, 15kA

Solar PV Balance Of System

DS50PV/51 are type 2 surge protectors are designed to protect against lightning surge voltages in photovoltaic power supply network. Based on the use of specific varistors, providing a protection in common mode or common and differential mode.

DS50PV/51 surge protectors use varistors as the primary protective element. Varistors are devices that have a nonlinear resistance that decreases as the applied voltage increases. This characteristic makes them ideal for use in surge protectors, as they can effectively shunt high voltage surges to ground and protect sensitive equipment.

The DS50PV/51 surge protectors also feature a compact and robust design, making them well-suited for use in harsh outdoor environments. They have a high discharge capacity and are designed to be installed in series with the DC power supply, providing protection for PV systems against transient overvoltages.

Overall, DS50PV/51 surge protectors are a reliable and effective solution for protecting photovoltaic power supply networks against lightning surge voltages. Their use of specific varistors provides both common mode and differential mode protection, making them suitable for a wide range of PV system configurations.
