Solar panel disconnect IP addressable

I am looking for a way of disconnecting/connecting a solar array of panels from over the internet.

The panels are an unusual configuration in that they output 110 V DC. They output about 5 amps.

The IP relays from Aviosys are only rated up to 60 V DC (e.g. http://www.aviosys.com/9223k.html)

I have used a number of Elk relays for disconnects of AC loads (http://www.elkproducts.com/_webapp_2...elay_Contactor) but they are rated AC. I am checking with manufacturer if I can use them for DC.

Looking for ideas about how to disconnect a 110 V DC solar array at a remote site over the internet.

Thanks in advance...
