The DPVN1-VG is CITEL's new series of type '1+2' SPDs for photovoltaic applications. The development of these SPDs is based on two technologies, patented exclusively by CITEL. The 'VG Technology' guarantees total absence of leakage current and maximum reliability. Using 'CTC Technology', the DPVN1 incorporates a thermosensitive separation point placed at the center of the SPD, guaranteeing the safest disconnection on the market. The products are designed for DIN rail mounting. Compact and equipped with a fault indicator, these products are easy to install and maintain.
