GARCHING, Germany & MUNICH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Garching/Munich, 8. April 2019 Raycap introduces ProBloc B 1000 DC, a new overvoltage protection for DC applications. With the new solution, numerous systems in the growing electro mobility market (e-mobility) can be protected. E-mobility often uses technologies such as fast charging or battery storage systems, especially with DC applications. This requires dedicated arresters with corresponding extended safety requirements, such as larger air and creepage distances. Since the DC voltage, in contrast to the AC voltage, does not have a zero crossing, resulting electric arcs cannot be automatically extinguished. As a result, fires can easily occur. With the new ProBloc B 1000 DC, Raycap offers a product that is UL Type 2 CA certified and future-proof for a large number of DC sources. Its main features include a compact design and an innovative patented disconnecting device with a rotating mechanism that can be used to safely extinguish a switching arc. Due to the high self-extinguishing capacity, a prospective short-circuit current of 50kA can be separated, for example as caused by battery storage. Due to its combination o...
