DISCONNECT UNIT

DISCONNECT UNIT

Full NEC conformity in a single enclosure

The new Disconnect Unit combines all safety measures into a single, compact enclosure. It is suited perfectly for North American Sunny Central inverters in 600 V to 1000 V systems. All load break switches are located on a single switchboard, working under full load conditions and ampacity reserves required by the NEC 2011. The switching handles are installed directly on the front to identify the switching status easily. This guarantees a secure and fast separation of all energy from the inverter in case of emergency or maintenance.
