[Burnaby, BC] Schneider Electric released the solar industry’s first 1,000 Vdc heavy-duty disconnect. The Square D REHU disconnects are housed in white NEMA 3 enclosures and have an operating temperature range from -37°C to 50°C. For grounded PV arrays, the three-pole disconnect comes preconfigured with all three poles wired in series. Ungrounded PV arrays utilize the fourpole disconnect and have two poles wired in series, resulting in a switch that can disconnect both hot conductors simultaneously. The disconnects are available in 100 A and 200 A ratings.
