ADPV Series — Surge Protection Device

DynaShield® ADPV Surge Suppression

ALLTEC’s ADPV Series is designed to protect DC photovoltaic and wind power systems against lightning and transient surges.It offers a convenient DIN rail base with replaceable suppression modules, status window, and remote alarm contacts. 2 pole (600 VDC) or 3 pole (1000 and 1500 VDC) models are available to protect all common solar DC applications. The ADPV DC Series employs fast-acting, high-energy thermally protected metal oxide varistors (MOV) in its suppression circuits. ADPV products are equipped with a visual status window to monitor its operation.

DynaShield Applications

ALLTEC’s Protection Pyramid depends on DynaShield® products to support its comprehensive facility framework. The second tier of protection diminishes the significance of random high-energy, short-duration electrical power transients through properly installed surge protective devices. These occurrences are typically caused by atmospheric phenomena (such as lightning strikes), utility switching, inductive loads, and internally generated overvoltages. You can view typical installation locations in the application map to the right by locating number 5.
