Residential

Residential / light commercial integrators
Eaton can supply the DC and AC part of electrical balance of system package for a residential / light commercial solar PV installation. Eaton products improve overall system reliability and safety because they are designed and tested to the latest IEC standards.

MCBs, RCDs and RCBOs   MCBs, RCDs and RCBOs – Protective switchgears
A new type of protective switchgear equipped with integrated and patent registered digital technology adds even more safety and reliability to photovoltaic systems of the future. Digital RCDs featuring a B+ characteristic are able to identify fault currents in both the alternate and direct current range, they warn operators at a very early stage before any damage can occur in the system, and they meet all the requirements for enhanced fire protection pursuant to the relevant standard. MCBs and combined RCBOs complete our offering for safe energy distribution.

Fireman's switch
   
DC disconnect switches & combiner boxes
PV fireman‘s switches are DC switch-disconnectors that isolate the lines between solar modules and inverters. They allow firefighters to operate without risk of electrocution in case of an emergency. In addition to the SOL30-Safety for small installations Eaton offers prefabricated fireman‘s switches housing 2, 3, 4 or 6 switch-disconnectors in a common enclosure. The fireman‘s switch opens automatically with the aid of its built-in undervoltage release when the firefighters isolate the fire location from mains power through the public utility and/or at the PV Off switch. The tripping is indicated through a signal lamp connected to the feedback contacts of the fireman’s switch, when provided power is present.

DC Overvoltage protection
   
DC Overvoltage protection
The surge arrester SPPT2PA has been developed especially for photovoltaic applications and protects the installations against transient overvoltages that can be induced by indirect lightning strikes. Eaton provides versions for both earthed and unearthed installations, where spark gaps are used to ensure galvanic isolation. Naturally, the units are available as prewired ready-to use modules – just install and they are ready to go.

AC Overvoltage protection
   
AC Overvoltage protection
The cost-effective way to combat disruption or damage to sensitive electronic equipment due to surge-related events, keeping the equipment and the related processes up and running. The overvoltage protection of low voltage distribution systems protects the installation against direct lightning strike into the overhead power supply line or  external lightning protection system. Depending on application the protection is available in single, pre-assembled with busbar, or preconfigured for most applications and power grids.

Insulated enclosures CI/CS
   
Insulated enclosures CI/CS
The weather-proof CI insulated enclosures with the enhanced degree of protection IP 65 and the CS steel enclosures IP66 are ideal for outdoor installation. Thus, you can safely and cost-effectively protect and install your switchgear. The modular design simplifies the adaptation to different application areas, such as generator connection enclosures for direct protection of several strings in a field.
