German term or phrase:Strangsicherung
I have a feeling I'm going to be asking more than one question about this text. It's a powerpoint presentation about Photovoltaic systems and has been fine to date (Page 50!). However, I've come up against a detailed diagram showing a DC circuit breaker and I'm struggling with the electrical terminology.
This is the note beneath the slide, which basically shows inside the circuit breaker:
Aufbau und Anschlüsse von DC-Trennschaltern
mit oder ohne **Strangsicherung**.
I can't find anything conclusive for Strangsicherung - line fuse? or maybe phase fuse?
Many thanks John - and everyone else who contributed. There still seemed to be a diversity of opinion, so I checked with the client and line fuse was their preferred option. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
