The X-Type Switch Disconnect

The Santon X-type switch is of a modular design and enables a variety of construction combinations. Combinations of DC and AC in one switch are available, for example for simultaneously switching both sides of the inverter if required. 

The switching range is from 10Amp through to 32Amp, with operational voltages from 500Volt through to 1,000Volt.

The Santon X-type switch has many modes of fixing: panel mounting by single hole mounting, base mounting (screw fix) or Din rail mounting.

 

All terminals are easily accessible from the rear or the front of the switch (depending on the model). 

A variety of accessories is available for the Santon X-type switch, consisting of, amongst others, various knobs, padlocking handles and IP65 waterproof seals.

Arc Fault Detection Unit

The Arc fault Detection Unit (ADU) offers extra safety, efficiency and convenience to any PV system. The electronic device developed specifically for PV systems detects arc faults within a string and gives both visual and acoustic feedback the moment an arc fault occurs.

The electronic fault detection units are available for DIN rail and wall mounting and supplied loose or in PV boxes.The electronic fault detection units are available for DIN rail and wall mounting and supplied loose or in PV boxes.

The Domestic Firefighter safety Switch

In most photovoltaic systems, the DC isolator is integrated into the DC/AC power inverter. After switching off the DC isolator, the cables between the DC solar modules and DC/AC power inverter running through the building are still subject to up to 1000 V DC. In the event of a fire, firefighters are exposed to a very serious source of potential danger.

The Santon domestic firefighter safety switch (DFS) provides the solution. It directly disconnects the DC current in close proximity to the solar modules and creates a safer situation for firefighters.

Silios

Santon has developed a range of DC safety switches for the protection of Photo voltaic solar systems. This standard range is called the Silios range. 

This switch was developed in close cooperation with major manufactures of solar systems and the relevant German Certification institutes.
