GEAR: SolarEdge Rapid Shutdown Function

SolarEdge Inverter with rapid shutdown
SolarEdge inverters now available with rapid shutdown technology.

SolarEdge ( inverters now have the rapid shutdown functionality that the 2014 NEC Section 690.12 requires. The inverters’ provider has completed Intertek Laboratories (ETL) testing to verify that its SafeDC technology meets the requirements.

Turning the inverter’s safety switch to the off position de-energizes PV source circuits to less than 30 VDC in less than the NEC’s required 10 seconds. For equipment manufactured prior to built-in rapid shutdown functionality, SolarEdge offers kits for field-retrofitting inverters to meet the requirements.
