Schneider Electric has launched the Square D 1000 VDC disconnect switch–the first enclosed heavy-duty 1000 VDC solar disconnect on the market, it claims. The “easy-to install” switch functions as a local disconnect for a string of Photovoltaic (PV) panels and is designed for an extended life expectancy in harsh environments, says Schneider. According to the company, the switch is suitable for both grounded and ungrounded PV systems, and offers a preconfigured solar solution and familiar enclosed safety switch design, with no additional components required.
