Solar Safety ShutOFF - Solution to an identified workplace health and safety issue

Safework NSW awarded Remote Solar Isolator a finalist in the 2016 Safework Awards for best solution to an identified workplace health and safety issue.

All string inverter solar installations cannot remove the lethal d.c. voltages required for solar generation. Solar panels continue to combine and generate lethal d.c. voltages even if damaged creating unpredictable current paths making roofs, gutters, modules and frames live. Even when following the standard shutdown procedure, it is unsafe to access the roof for homeowners, maintenance and tradesmen, and emergency personnel like fire-fighters and SES.

Solar Safety ShutOFF is a unique Australian designed and manufactured safety device for solar.
* Eliminates the issue of lethal d.c. voltage by controlling the solar panels before they combine
* Automatically shuts down when the grid power is disconnected or excessive heat is detected from the solar array
* Provides the ability for any operator to stop the output voltage generated by any solar array even when the sun is shining
* Eliminates the risk of electric shock to the operator
* Can be retrofitted to any existing solar installation
* Requires no additional training to operate

The Solar Safety ShutOFF is easy to install and provides the safety expected on any worksite.

Also recognised by the electrical industry, Remote Solar Isolator won Innovative Product of the Year at the National Annual Excellence Awards held by the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) and Master Electricians Australia (MEA).

Township Worker is Good Samaritan as Solar Panel Fire Damages a Second East Brunswick Business

Chief Geoffrey Herald of the Marlborough, Massachusetts, Fire Department said, "Obviously the shock factor, the potential for injury for our firefighters is still there even though the power is shut off from the street." Had a #RemoteSolarIsolator #SolarSafetyShutOFF been installed, shutting off the power from the street would have disconnected the panels leaving zero DC voltage and mitigated the threat to the fire-fighters. @Solarisolator Remote Solar Isolator www.solarsafetyshutoff.com

"One complicating factor was that no one could shut off the power to the solar panels were producing....." With Remote Solar Isolator Safety ShutOFF power can be switched off immediately. 99.9% of solar cannot shutoff power from the solar panels. This can delay fire fighting and potentially put people and building in harms way. Get your Remote Solar Isolator Safety ShutOFF.

Solar Safety ShutOFF and Arc Detection | Remote Solar Isolator

The ultimate safety device for any solar installation is the inclusion of a Solar Safety Shutoff combined with an Arc Detection Unit.

What does it do?

When installed an Arc Detection Unit constantly searches for any series arcs within your entire solar array. This means that when a series arc fault occurs, whether caused by a damaged or poor quality panel, aged connectors and wiring or even a recalled dc isolator, the arc detection unit will sense the problem and remove power to the Solar Safety ShutOFF. This then stops the lethal dc voltage being generated by your solar panels leaving no voltage circulating within your entire solar array. In other words your solar array will not be further damaged by continuous arcing and will not catch fire.

Why do I need this?

Current solar installations have been installed with no way of sensing a fault or way of stopping lethal dc voltages being generated. In other words there is no true isolator, fuse, circuit breaker or safety switch available for the generator on your roof. Many recorded failures have been noted where fire has occurred and has spread because the solar array could not be shut down. Roof top dc isolators and shutdown procedures at the switchboard do not stop lethal dc voltages being generated throughout the entire solar array whenever the sun is shining.

Automatic 24/7 Safety Monitoring

The Solar Safety ShutOFF is the first step in resolving the safety issues accompanied with solar installations by providing the only air gap solution to shutting down an entire solar installation just by disconnecting the incoming grid supply. With both an Arc Detection Unit and the Solar Safety ShutOFF any installation can be provided the following safety features

* Automatic 24/7 safety monitoring system
* Can safely detect any series arcing within the solar array and automatically shut down the solar generator before any fire occurs
* Can be remotely turned off in case of fire flood or maintenance, removing all lethal voltages from the solar array
* Any operator can shut down the entire solar array just by disconnecting the incoming mains or following the standard shutdown procedure
* Detect and shutdown if heat sensed from a fire other than the solar panels making it safe for access to fight the fireProvides an audible alarm when an Arc fault has been detected
* The Solar Safety ShutOFF is proudly Australian owned and manufactured

Solar panels need to be connected straight into a Solar Safety ShutOFF so in emergencies,  maintenance or whenever access to the roof is required there is no combined DC voltage from the panels.  This allows fire fighters to vent the roof by putting their axe  straight through the panel if need be without the risk of electrocution.
