Solar Isolator Cover Adelaide

A rooftop DC isolator is a switch situated adjacent to a solar panel array intended as an additional safety mechanism. Manually operated, the switch shuts off DC current between the solar panels and the solar inverter. It was intended as an additional safety mechanism as there are also isolator switches at ground level adjacent to the inverter or enclosed within the inverter itself.

How old is the isolating switch on your rooftop solar? Is it one of the models that has been subject to recall since 2014? If not, how well insulated against weather is your isolator.

Don’t hesitate to contact with Sharpe Services and ask them about the ultimate protection against stormwater and potential summer UV damage weatherproof cover. 

In addition to using the highest quality isolators, Sharpe Services also install all rooftop isolators with a metal housing to shade the isolator and limit the exposure to the harsh Australian elements.

As roof temperatures can soar to well over 50C in summer it makes sense to safeguard a key component of your solar year-round.

Solar Isolator Cover Adelaide

Solar power system owners don’t have a choice as to whether a rooftop isolator is installed – it is currently required. The reasoning behind the requirement was primarily to help better protect emergency services. But fires occurring in rooftop solar arrays have been rare and the use of the switch by emergency services, given its location, has apparently been even rarer.

Main issues with the actual Rooftop Isolators

These devices have to operate for years in what is a particularly harsh environment. Aside from installation issues, there have been a number of recalls of various isolator devices due to issues such as the potential for water ingress or other faults that can cause the isolator to overheat and subsequently pose a fire/electrocution hazard. In some of the fires that have occurred in rooftop solar installations, the isolator has been the culprit.

Winter & Stormwater  are the main enemies, particularly for systems that were badly installed initially.

It is vitally important that the wiring and isolating switches are sealed and working correctly.
