ESP PV Series

The ESP PV Series is a combined Type 1 and 2 tested protector (to BS EN 61643) for a Photovoltaic PV solar panel system that is on a building where a structural Lightning Protection System (LPS) is employed, for equipotential bonding.

For use at boundaries up to LPZ 0 to protect against flashover (on the DC side of the DC-AC inverter) through to LPZ 2 to protect the PV system from damage.

Features & benefits

  • Enhanced protection (to IEC/BS EN 62305) offering low let through voltage further minimizing the risk of flashover creating dangerous sparking or electric shock
  • Repeated protection in lightning intense environments
  • The varistor based design eliminates the high follow current (If) associated with spark gap based surge protection
  • Compact, space saving design
  • Indicator shows when the protector requires replacement
  • Remote signal contact can indicate the protector’s status through interfacing with a building management system
