Yes - we are able to offer other sizes of the OutBack OBPV breakers. Another option for odd sizes is to use the touch safe type fuse holders and fuses.

Which PV module brand requires 5 and 8 amps? [img]images/smiles/icon_confused.gif[/img]

Hi,

Many of the modules that I use specify either 8 amps or 5 amps as the maximum protection device. Your price list only shows 6 amp or 9 amp breakers as the closest size for the PSPV.

Do you plan on carrying 5 amp or 8 amp breakers so I can make a code compliant system?

Thanks,
Ron

The Photowatt PW-1000 when wired for 24V nom. uses 5 amps. The Solavolt SV-8500 uses 8 amps. I think the Astropower 75W modules also are 8 amp for the maximum fuse size.
