SIM Mini Solar Isolator

SIM Mini Solar Isolator

IMO’s heritage of manufacturing TRUE DC solar isolators is unrivalled. Our market-leading SI range has surpassed 3.5 million field installed units worldwide, with ZERO reported electrical failures. As an evolution of the DC Isolator product range, we have now manufactured a compact version with a 35% reduction in cubic volume, we like to call the SIM Mini Solar Isolator.

Based on the supremely successful SI series design, we have created a smaller, more compact switch that not only has improved switching capacity, but also offers extended mounting options. These enhanced attributes accompany the already high standard of features which include guaranteed electrical arc suppression (3ms typical), knife-edge contacts which increase reliability and prolong electrical ife, and our operator independent switching mechanism.

The entire SI range was specifically developed for arduous DC disconnect applications, and are used by many of the world’s largest Solar Inverter manufacturers, and with the 35% reduction in size, the SIM series is the ideal next generation choice for OEM’s globally.

Constructed from high quality materials and utilising the latest technologies to bring to you a best in class performance product, IMO’s SIM series is robust and reliable, continuing the IMO TRUE DC legacy. As with the SI series, the SIM solar isolator carries all the approvals you would expect from a market-leading product, including IEC (60947-3), VDE (0660) and UL508i (E359344).

With 14 different mounting types created to meet the demands of integrating into new and existing applications, the SIM is the entire DC isolation package for safety, reliability, flexibility and quality.

High Temperature Polyimide Sockets

High Temperature Polyimide Sockets

E-tec introduce any shape, any pattern, any pin count custom hi temp sockets – customers can build their own turned pin socket and E-tec will produce the parts in days with no tooling costs ( unless a new brass terminal design is required ) and at a price comparable to conventional turned pin sockets.

Sockets and adaptors are produced in FR4 or hi temp polyimide for applications requiring elevated operating temperatures up to 300 degrees C. Sockets can also be produced in MT40 and Rogers material for special applications.

E-tec offer a wide range of sockets including circular, rectangular, single, double, triple strips etc. on any pitch. Elevated sockets used for example with LED displays can be produced by incorporating a raised turned pin terminal. Applications for hi temp sockets are found in the Oil and Gas industry, Aerospace and Defence, Industrial and Instrumentation, Sensors, Medical, Automotive and Transport. Enquiries are invited – send a simple sketch to sales@phoenix1.co.uk or call 01555 751566 and we will be pleased to offer a quotation.

Connection technology for ME and ME-MAX housings

Connection technology for ME and ME-MAX housings

Phoenix Contact PCB connectors for the modular electronics housings from the ME and ME-MAX series are now also available with gold-plated contact surfaces.

Thanks to their excellent resistance to corrosion and good transmission properties, the gold-plated contacts are particularly suitable for demanding device solutions with high contact reliability.

The two- to four-position MSTBO 2,5 PCB headers are designed for currents up to 8 A and voltages up to 320 V. All numbers of positions are available with right or left soldering posts (5.0 mm pitch), and versions for wave soldering as well as the automated THR process can also be supplied.

Photovoltaic string protection fuses

Photovoltaic string protection fuses

The subcomponents have been tested in accordance with IEC 62852 (connectors) and IEC 60269-6 (fuse-links) and their safe triggering confirmed. Users can thus be assured that, under the conditions described in the standards, the photovoltaic system is always reliably protected against residual currents.

The robust fuse adapters of the SUNCLIX product family are equipped with high-quality Littelfuse fuse-links for 3.5 to 30 A and are rated for voltages up to 1,500 V. The easy-to-install protective elements are designed in accordance with degree of protection IP68 (24 h / 2 m) and are particularly suited for safe field cabling between the PV panels and inverter.

Powerful security for PV systems

Powerful security for PV systems

The new Valvetrab MS Type 1+2 combined lightning current and surge arresters from Phoenix Contact have a 3+V circuit.
Thanks to their high short-circuit current rating and high-performance protective circuit, they deliver high system availability to PV systems.
Due to the voltage limiting varistors in the surge protective devices, you can use them in isolated DC voltage systems of up to 1,000 V DC. They secure each PV cable individually. The arresters supplement the existing VAL-MS product family with lightning current and surge protective devices with high continuous voltage and a high discharge capacity.
Alongside simple replacement when servicing is required, the coded plugs ensure a safe solution since it is impossible to plug them in incorrectly. In addition, the plugs offer an optical-mechanical status indicator for function monitoring and as required, a floating remote indication contact.
