Solectria Renewables LLC, a manufacturer of utility-scale solar PV inverters, has debuted its ARCCOM product - a disconnecting string combiner with integrated arc fault detection and interruption (AFDI) capabilities.

ARCCOM is compliant with NEC 2014 arc fault and rapid shutdown requirements and contains a contactor disconnect, lockable switch and string-level arc fault protection, allowing it to detect and interrupt a series arc. It is designed and built for extreme conditions and temperature ranges, having endured highly accelerated lifetime testing (HALT). The ARCCOM also features standard oversized compression lugs that allow for long home-run conductors, and additional options include a surge arrestor, AC power supply and stud connector plates.

ARCCOM has been field-tested for over nine months with Solectria's inverters to avoid any nuisance tripping. It is compatible with all of Solectria's three-phase central inverters: PVI 50-100KW Series, SGI 225-500PE Series, SGI 500XT and SGI 500/750XTM.
