SIBA launches new "fuse.on" series: publications that explain the world of fuses in a clear and comprehensible way - beginning with photovoltaics
2009 - There's no question that photovoltaics (PV) is booming. Private home
owners are scrambling to have their roofs equipped with high-tech modules as
quick as they can. In order to ensure that safety isn't getting short shrift in
this, SIBA is making its own contribution: The Lünen-based company is dedicating
the first issue of its specialized information series "fuse.on" to the solar electricity
phenomenon. It's title is program: "PV-fuses: selecting the right one in just
four steps". The publication squarely targets the technically versed who want to
know exactly how to proceed, giving tried-and-tested advice.
photovoltaics is just the beginning, at least as far as "fuse.on" is concerned.
In its occasional series of publications, SIBA is going to cover other,
similarly application-oriented topics. In stepping up to the plate, the
Lünen-based manufacturer is able to draw on its exhaustive experience in the
industry - not least owing to the fact that its own engineers are continually
making their products even better and more versatile, from miniature and low
voltage fuses all the way to medium voltage, power semiconductor and high
voltage protection. And because SIBA has become an international player with 11
subsidiaries distributed the world over, there will also be an English-language
edition of "fuse.on".
first issue, "fuse.on" highlights selecting the right fuse for solar energy
installations. Despite the fact that literally thousands of PV-modules have
already been installed on German roofs, the concomitant electrical conditions
are all but easy to understand as module manufacturers, converter producers and
system installers tend to give partly contradictory advice.
through the fog, Heinz-Ulrich Haas, head of development at SIBA, is providing a
calculation method in "fuse.on" that is easy to understand and which in just
four steps leads to a fuse that is going to offer reliable protection without
tripping prematurely. In his method, Haas considered the relevant factors
coming into play, such as module data, ambient temperature and MPP, the
"maximum point of power".
issue will be distributed initially on trade fairs such as Intersolar, but is
also available by mail on request (see right for contact address).
