Have you installed a photovoltaic system on your building? Perhaps you also operate a wind farm or solar power plant? – Then take steps to protect your investments and yield against damage caused by lightning and surge voltages.

Your advantages

  • Complete protection from generation, through feed-in, to communication, thanks to a comprehensive product range
  • Optimally tailored protection, thanks to sector-specific products
  • System availability is ensured around the clock, thanks to surge protection
  • Optimized maintenance planning, thanks to remote signaling

Protect your investment

Renewable energy sources are becoming increasingly important. Wind power and photovoltaics have seen a significant increase in installations.

However, the systems are at particularly high risk from lightning currents and surge voltages. This is because most are situated in exposed locations or they are at particular risk of lightning strike due to their surface area.

Take preventive action: surge protection significantly increases the availability of your systems.

String combiner boxes with external string fuse

The string combiner boxes (SCBs) with string fuse outside the control box are a convincing option, thanks to their compact design and flexible field of application. Placing the fuse on the outside significantly reduces the thermal load of the internal components, as the fuses can optimally discharge their waste heat into the environment.

String combiner boxes with standard string fuse

Reliably monitor the status of your photovoltaic system with string combiner boxes from Phoenix Contact. The solutions with standard string fuse offer a temperature-optimized control cabinet design which prevents important components, such as monitoring systems, from failing due to thermal overload.

Protection for wind turbine generators

From low-voltage main distribution via top box, generator, and pitch control, we offer reliable protective devices to prevent downtimes and damage.

Protect your system power supply, communication, and control technology using products that are specially tailored to the requirements of wind energy.

Protection for every circumstance

Surge voltages are potential interference factors. Without effective protection, you can expect high costs for repairing or replacing the equipment affected.

The multi-level concept from Phoenix Contact provides effective protection for your systems and devices.

  • Type 1 protection level:
    Powerful lightning current arrester (type 1+2 combined lightning current and surge arrester or type 1+2 special combined lightning current and surge arrester)
  • Type 2 protection level:
    Surge protection that is essential for any power supply
  • Type 3 protection level:
    Surge protection for sensitive end devices
