Siemens Arc Fault Detection Devices

Perfect protection knows no compromise

Arc fault protection devices are highly recommended and preemptively protect materials and especially personnel against injury. In our product range, we offer the high-quality series 5SV6 arc fault circuit breakers from Siemens that guarantee you the best possible safety. You can find out why arc fault protection is now highly recommended and why the new Siemens series offers the perfect protection for you here.

New Generation of Arc Fault Detection Devices

5SV6 Series – Product-Highlights


Complete safety: Protection against short circuit and overload!

In Europe, more than two million fires are reported annually. Of these, more than a third are due to dangerous defects in electrical installations. Billions of dollars of fire damage, thousands of injured and even dead are the terrible result. That is why arc fault detection devices (AFDD) are now highly recommended in many applications!

With the publication of the 18th edition of BS 7671 effective January 1st 2019, the installation of arc fault protection devices in Great Britain is highly recommended for many locations such as sleeping and recreation rooms in day-care centers, retirement homes, barrier-free apartments, buildings made of combustible building materials, e.g. wooden houses, fire-endangered premises and buildings with irreplaceable goods. The installation of arc fault detection devices according to IEC 60364-4-42 is also recommended internationally.

New Generation of Arc Fault Detection Devices

With the 5SV6 series, Siemens is presenting the new and technically advanced protection components for preventive arc fault protection in electrical installations.

The arc fault detection device combines the function of the second generation AFDD along with the function of a miniature circuit breaker in only one pitch unit (TE) and is therefore the smallest arc fault detection device in the world.

In previous installations, it was always necessary to provide two pitch units per circuit for this solution. The new 5SV6 thus significantly reduces the space required for new installations and enables standard-compliant expansion of existing systems. With the simple replacement of a normal circuit breaker, the protection for existing circuits can be significantly increased.
