PNL-GFDI-80Q PV Ground-Fault Detector Interrupter 80 Amp 150VDC four pole panel mount
Outback Power PNL-GFDI-80Q Four Pole 80-Amp DC Ground Fault Protection System
Ground fault detection and interruption is required by US National Electric Code for PV arrays mounted on or within a specified vicinity of residential dwelling roofs as a safety precaution. The OutBack PV Ground-Fault Detection and Interruption System protects wiring and system components for one, two or four PV arrays when used in a FLEXware 250, FLEXware 500 or FLEXware 1000.
Features of the Outback Power PNL-GFDI-80Q Four Pole 80-Amp DC Ground Fault Protection System:
- The GFDI consists of a single 0.5 amp breaker, mechanically connected to a combination of 1, 2, or 4 standard OutBack 80 amp breakers
- When a ground fault occurs, the 0.5 amp breaker will trip. Due to the common internal tripping mechanism, all the other breakers connected to the GFDI will also trip and shut power down.
- All power production from PV array charge controllers ceases when the breakers trip and remove their connection to the batteries.
- The GFDI meets the requirements of the 2008 NEC section 690.5 (A) through (C) to reduce fire hazards when wired according to the wiring diagram contained in these instructions.
