Ensure optimal safety for photovoltaic installations

archelios CALC is a software for calculating and sizing of photovoltaic installations. The software takes into account an installation in its entirety from the solar panels to the inverter and inverter to the network/ or self-consumption installation. It controls the safety and compliance of the facility according to CEI-60364 (2002).

In this context of safety, archelios CALC analyses and takes into account the risks associated with lightning through the sizing of surge protectors.

All these protection systems are now available and accessible in the catalogue of components of archelios CALC.
