Protection from residual currents
More safety for humans, plants and assets
The number of electrical consumers in residential homes and commercial buildings has increased significantly in recent decades. The latest electrical devices often have quite different characteristics in terms of current consumption than earlier devices, due to frequency converters in washing machines, for example, or switched-mode power supply units in TVs, PCs or LED lights. There are also decentralized power producers like photovoltaic systems or charging devices for electric vehicles. All of this requires new protection strategies for electrical installations. This also includes appropriate residual current protection devices or residual current circuit breakers that will cut the current immediately and safely in the event of a fault.

5SV1 RCBOs - Double protection in one deviceThe compact 5SV1 RCBOs reliably protect different electrical circuits against fault currents. They combine residual current detection and overcurrent protection in just one modular width (MW) and ensure reliable personal and cable protection in numerous areas of application with just one device.
- Space savings of 50% thanks to a compact solution for residual current and line protection
- Simple retrofit in existing systems thanks to the same design
- Easy integration on DIN rails thanks to slider actuation
- Possibility of adding a 5SM6 AFD unit for protection against fault currents, overcurrent, short-circuits and arcing faults in just two modular widths
