AC and DC isolators
Designed specifically for PV installations, Kraus and Naimer DC isolators have interlocked lids (the lid cannot be removed if the switch is in the 'on' position), padlockable switches, and IP66/67 rated enclosures. They are an excellent, safe choice - and for a quality switch from a European manufacturer, remarkably well priced.
The ratings given in the table below are in accordance with the requirements of IEC/EN 60947-3, utilization category DC-21B. Ratings in accordance with DC-21B are suitable for use in the selection of an isolator to isolate a PV string input to a PV inverter.

Traditional rotary-switch isolators also from Kraus and Naimer offer excellent value.
We also have larger isolators for the higher current three-phase installations.
