Discuss Dc isolators in the Solar PV Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net
as long as it's within the manufacturers specs - k&E have a sheet on their site that details the specs for each isolator for single and 2 strong operation - we always give it plenty of leeway with them, if in doubt use the next size up (technically I believe ampage & voltage +20% is the recomendation)Hi guys
Is it possible to use 2 strings through one isolator. For example 2 no 820v strings..trying to clear up a disagreement. 1000v isolators used. Thanks in advance and when is 3rd edition of the pv guide coming out ???
yes, we nearly fell for it! Fortunately I'm in the habit of reading the instructions on any new item even if it looks straightforward, and also buzzed it through to confirm (people do look at me a bit odd sometimes when I sit reading the instructions for a bathroom light, but sometimes it pays dividends! Actually, maybe they are just looking at me a bit odd for other reasons!)Pay careful attention to the wiring diagram for this item. The first time we used one lets just say we didn't!!
