Rapidly disconnect PV strings

Alencon's Ground Arc and Rapid Disconnect unit, the GARD, is a solution for detecting harmful arc and ground faults in a PV array at the string level. The GARD also offers the ability to rapidly and safely disconnect PV strings with either a mechanical switch or remote command. The GARD can be deployed as a standalone device or in conjunction with Alencon's String Power Optimizer and Transmitter - the SPOT. Additionally, the GARD can be used with or without remote communications. The GARD can be installed in new PV systems or as a retrofit to existing solar plants.
