Fuse links and fuse holders for photovoltaic applications


Photovoltaic, or PV for short, is a technology that converts light directly into electricity. Photovoltaic is also the fi eld of study relating to this technology and there are many research institutes devoted to work on photovoltaic.

Due to the growing need for solar energy, the manufacture of solar cells and solar photovoltaic array has expanded dramatically in recent years. Photovoltaic production has been doubling every two years,

increasing by an average of 48 percent each year since 2002, making it the world’s fastest-growing energy technology. At the end of 2007, according to preliminary data, cumulative global production was 12,400 megawatts.

Financial incentives, such as preferential feed-in tariffs for solar-generated electricity and net metering, have supported solar PV installations in many countries including Germany, Japan, and the United States.


DF Electric launch a new photovoltaic modular fuse holder and fuse Pv for photovoltaic applications.

The first feature that this news products offers, is the assigned voltages, in one hand the fuse holder with 1000 V DC and in the other hand the fuse with 900 V DC. They have been developed to offer a compact, safety and economic

protection solution in photovoltaic installations where due to the increase of the power and technologic evolution, no-load voltages up to 900V DC.

The fuses can be also used meet the requirements for instruments (multimeters) and traction equipment auxiliary circuits.
