LPI Photovoltaic Shunt Protector - PV140

Features

High performance surge protector


Nominal impulse discharge current 40kA, 8/20s / Single Mode
35mm DIN rail mount

Product Description
The LPI PV140 is a surge protection device rated for 40kA 8/20s single shot surge
capacity (Imax). The unit is designed for protection of positive and negative busbars of
photovoltaic systems against the surge effects according to EN 61643-11 and IEC
61643-1. It is also designed for easy mounting on standard 35mm DIN rail.
The unit comes with fast, responsive Metal Oxide Varistors (MOV) to provide effective
surge protection with low let-through voltage to protect sensitive electronics and
electrical circuits. The PV140 is fitted with thermal disconnects which will respond
should the varistors be overloaded. In this case, the indicator changes status to red,
and alarm contacts change over. The unit comes as a two part item. The base is
hardwired into the circuit to be protected, and the protection module is plugged into this
base. This enables easy replacement of protection modules should they be degraded or damaged by excessive
transient activity.

Installation:
Fix the PV140 modules onto the DIN
rail.
2.
Connect the positive terminal to one
side and the negative to the other side.
3.
Series connect the normally closed
alarm contacts (1 and 2) for remote
monitoring.
4.
The PV140 is a pluggable module and
the pluggable unit can be replaced
(when the indicator turns red`) without
disconnecting the power supply.
5.
Modules marked with an asterisk in
Figure 1. are only necessary if neither
the +ve or the ve wires are locally
grounded.

Remote Status Indication


A set of voltage-free contacts integral to each of the PV140 protection modules provides the facility to monitor the protection status. With the protection module fully operational, the status indicator will be green and terminals
1 & 2 on the remote monitoring terminals will be connected. When the
PV140 protection module MOV material degrades to a point where replacement is necessary, the status indicator will change to red and the voltage
free contacts will change state so that terminals 2 & 3 are connected (see
Figure 2)

PV140 in IP66 enclosure:


The PV140 is also available in an IP66 enclosure for
outdoor applications. For applications where either
positive or negative is grounded at both supply end
and equipment end, the connections as per figure 3
can be used.
