Siemens, Enphase Combine Arc Fault Protection, Solar Microinverters

July 8, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Siemens-Energy-ManageSiemens and Enphase partnered to improve arc fault protection for solar applications. By combining Siemens’ arc fault technology with Enphase’s microinverter technology, the combined offering addresses the latest updates in the 2014 NEC, requiring protection of all PV circuits (NEC 2014 705.12(D)6).

Siemens’ arc fault protection technology provides over-current and short-circuit protection to branch circuits. It also provides protection to downstream branch circuit wiring, cord sets and power supply cords against the unwanted effects of arcing.
