Energy is undergoing rapid changes in the quest for higher efficiency and longer life. And TE Circuit Protection offers the solutions necessary to keep your energy applications from being damaged due to overcurrent, overvoltage and thermal events.
The power provided by your solar panels to your backup battery tends to fluctuate depending on several factors such as the sun’s angle and temperature. Any faults in the charge controller may adversely affect the charging process and may expose the batteries to un-stable current and voltage values, causing them to overcharge. TE Connectivity’s Metal Hybrid PPTC (MHP) device can help protect against these faults.
Charge controllers may get permanently damaged due to reverse flow from faulty batteries such as a dead short, or resistive short. Overloading and short-circuiting of your system is another issue that may lead to other hazards. TE Connectivity’s Polyswitch devices help protect against damage from these faults.
Cable insulation breakdown in conduits, faulty load condition, such as shorts in control charger are few of the common causes that lead to inverter damage. TE Connectivity’s fuses and RTP devices help protect then from such faults.
