[San Jose, CA] Innovative Solar designed its rapid-shutdown product family to fully comply with NEC Section 690.12. The system not only controls PV source-circuit conductors at the array, but also discharges inverter capacitors in less than 10 seconds. The platform is inverter agnostic, supporting both grounded and ungrounded systems, and certified to the UL 1741 product safety standard. The rapid-shutdown box is available in either a polycarbonate enclosure or a SolaDeck enclosure (pictured here). The 2- or 4-channel models support up to 4 or 8 strings, respectively. Innovative Solar delivers a 24 V power supply with all units and offers an optional emergency stop switch.
