The new 5SV6 arc fault detection device

Pioneer with the 5SV6 AFDD

With the innovative 5SV6 arc fault detection device (AFDD), Siemens is the first manufacturer in the IEC market to present the third generation of fire-prevention products. The 5SV6 AFDD is the first device with integrated miniature circuit breaker (MCB) in just one modular width (instead of the previous 2 MW). Additionally, it is the smallest of its kind worldwide.


Due to its narrow design, the 5SV6 AFDD allows for a particularly space-saving installation. For new electrical installations, this saves fifty percent space compared to the installation of two separate devices. 


The world’s smallest AFDD

The new arc fault detection device is super compact making it suitable for both installing in new buildings and retrofitting into existing. At any time, a standard-compliant expansion of the electrical installation to protect against electric fires is possible – easily and without the need for additional space.


Your benefits:

  • First arc fault detection device in the IEC market (2012)
  • First AFDD with integrated MCB in just one modular width 
  • 50% space savings during installation 
  • Siemens-patented SIARC detection technology
  • Consistent product portfolio with a high level of variance (300 possible combinations)
