Protections are devices and systems designed to safeguard the solar system and its components from possible damage, failure or dangerous situations. The main objective of these protections is to guarantee the safety, optimal performance and durability of the solar system. Some of the most common protections in solar systems include:
Overcurrent Protections: These devices, such as fuses or circuit breakers, are used to interrupt electrical current in the event of an overload or short circuit in the system. They help prevent damage to components and cables from excess current and reduce the risk of fire or electric shock.
Surge Protections – Surge protectors help protect the solar system from voltage fluctuations and transient surges that can occur due to lightning strikes, utility switching, or other events. These devices divert excess voltage and protect solar system components from possible damage.
Harsh Environmental Enclosures – These are weather-resistant enclosures that protect solar system components from exposure to moisture, dust, excessive solar radiation, or other harsh environmental conditions.
