New Mounting Options for High Performance ASO Solar Fuse

The ASO fuse is rated from 1-30A at 1000 VDC with a breaking capacity of 20kA. It is UL listed and VDE approved according to the latest gPV requirements for the protection of photovoltaic systems, according to IEC 60269-6 and UL 2579.

SANTA ROSA, California, September 26, 2011 – Schurter is pleased to announce an expanded range of mounting options for its ASO solar fuse. Equipped with PCB terminals or bolt-mount tabs, the ASO can be mounted directly to the PCB to save board space and overall cost of assembly for combiner boxes. The new mounting solutions are offered in addition to Schurter's DIN-Rail touch-safe fuseholder and conventional PCB fuse clips, providing a wide range of mounting options for string and other PV system protection.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
