Texas Instruments (TI) Inc.

The RD-195 from Texas Instruments (TI) Inc., Dallas, TX, is a fully programmable DC arc-detect reference system that lets designers safeguard high-power DC systems, such as automobile and aircraft battery management systems, industrial factory equipment, and photovoltaic units from arc faults. The RD-195 detects different types of arcs, including series, parallel, and ground arcs and is designed to operate in noisy environments with RF interference. Typical response time is <100 ms. You can program the RD-195 to optimize the balance between arc-detection accuracy and false-detection prevention; a supplied software application tool lets you alter the system's threshold detection parameters. The RD-195 is certified to the UL1699B standard and complies with the NEC690.11 solar power safety requirements.
