DEHNguard MP YPV – Compact protection installed quickly

The importance of decentralised energy generation through PV systems will continue to increase. Safe operation of these systems is therefore essential for a stable energy supply. However, solar power cannot be generated without an inverter, the central component of a solar power system. But the inverter could be disrupted or even fail completely if, for example, subjected to the force of a lightning strike. Surge arresters (SPDs) for protecting the DC side of inverters are therefore an important component of protection concepts. DEHNguard MP YPV is the new surge protective device from DEHN for protecting photovoltaic systems on residential buildings. This Type 2 DC surge arrester expands the product range with its practical push-in double terminal. As a prewired, modular complete unit for photovoltaic systems, consisting of a base part and plug-in protection modules, it offers advantages for planning, installation and maintenance.

Safely earthing pipelines - with screwable earth rods from DEHN

Pipelines are the lifeline of our industrialised society. Their reliable functioning is essential for many supply and production systems. Increased bundling of transportation and energy routes increases inductive and ohmic interference on pipelines. As a result, voltage can occur on and damage pipelines. This may present a hazard to people, material assets and the environment, often resulting in high repair costs. Interference voltages can be caused, for example, by nearby high-voltage transmission lines and railway lines, but also by earth faults and lightning currents. The screwable earth rod from DEHN is the solution for safe earthing. The very low earth electrode resistances achieved with it reduce the corresponding voltages on the pipelines to a minimum. Interference voltages are safely discharged, thus protecting pipelines and people.

Telescopic air-termination rods from DEHN – quick and easy to set up, practical for transport and storage

Air-termination rods are part of an air-termination system, and thus essential elements for the external lightning protection of roof-mounted structures or buildings. Their size and dimensions depend on the building in question. The telescopic air-termination rods from DEHN are quick to install, do not take up much space when stored and are convenient to transport. The latching mechanism automatically stops the respective segment part of the air-termination rod, thus preventing it from slipping back uncontrolledly.

The Supervisory Board of DEHN SE and Helmut Pusch, CSO DEHN SE have agreed, after joint consideration, to end their cooperation. In his almost 30 years at DEHN, he has had an exceptionally positive influence on the company as a whole and on its sales department in particular. Customers, business partners, employees and shareholders perceived Mr Pusch as a representative of DEHN who was always honest and full of integrity. His outstanding professional and market knowledge, his boundless commitment in a wide variety of areas and his high quality standards have characterised him over all these years. Looking ahead, both parties have come to the conclusion that they hold different opinions on fundamental aspects - too different to continue the previously successful cooperation.
