Next february SIBA South Africa exhibits at the leading solar and energy event in Africa.
Ultra-rapid fuses: when every tenth of a second counts
Photovoltaic: Protection for small domestic equipment as well as for big solar farms
From small-scale house installations to large-scale solar power plants, from bungalow rooftops in Germany to American supermarkets, from sports arenas in Asia all the way to self-sufficient systems in rural India. It is a current trend that especially mid-scale PV plants increasingly are using string inverters with rated voltages of 800 V AC and higher. To meet these requirements SIBA has expanded its portfolio.
Read more about our 800 V AC portfolio for string inverters.

Battery systems and energy storage:
There will soon be a new standard to address the much stricter requirements that fuses for energy storage and battery systems will be expected to satisfy. SIBA already has a number of products that meet this standard in its portfolio. In addition to its well-known back-up fuses that exclusively provide short-circuit protection, SIBA now also has a new family of full-range fuse inserts that respond to overload currents as well. Both product ranges have rated breaking capacities in excess of 100 kA and so can meet the tough requirements of modern-day battery systems.

Not just frequency converters firmly
Frequency converters used in motor control allow variable speeds, constant torques and gentle starts. A high-quality solution, therefore. And so all the more important to ensure that such investments are properly protected. Our URDC fuses keep your frequency converters safe from harm. And not just them: UPS, power converters and special applications in the field of wind and solar energy are some of the other areas in which these fuses are used.
Power electronics, easily and efficiently protected
The renewable energy boom and recent innovations in power electronics mean that more and more components have to be manufactured in large lots. This production method works best when you can easily mount as many components as possible on boards using a fully or semi-automated process. SIBA’s product line of power electronic fuses now includes five body types with soldering pins: from 10 x 30 mm to NH000. They are all easy to install. And are as powerful as always.
Other applications: At home in
many operating classes
Our UR fuses cover the whole range of uses for power semiconductors, starting from classical short-circuit fuses mounted directly on the semiconductor with the back-up operating class, aR, and extending to the full-range operating class gR, which is also able to protect against overload currents, and also to operating class gS, originally introduced by SIBA as operating class gRL. This product protects not only the semiconductor itself, but also the leads. And in doing so, it preserves your investment from harm.
