AC isolators are versatile components that find application on the AC side of solar inverters and in a range of AC systems. They accommodate different voltage requirements and serve essential functions in both standalone and grid-connected setups.

In solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, AC isolators are strategically placed on the AC side of the inverter. Their primary role is to enable the safe disconnection of the AC power generated by solar panels. This disconnection is crucial for routine maintenance, ensuring safety, and in emergency situations.

These AC isolators are designed to be compatible with a wide range of AC applications, making them suitable for various voltage requirements. Whether in standalone systems operating independently or grid-connected systems, AC isolators play a pivotal role.

In the context of grid-connected systems, compliance with standards like G83/1 is important. This standard stipulates that a PV system must be directly connected to an isolation switch capable of isolating both live and neutral conductors. The switch should also have the capability to secure itself in the “OFF” position and be easily accessible within the installation.

Moreover, AC isolator switches are well-suited for controlling AC circuit systems, such as those found in PV systems and air conditioning systems. These weatherproof disconnectors are designed for outdoor installation and can provide a high level of protection. Their base-mounted mechanism offers convenient termination and wiring options, enhancing their functionality in various applications.
