SolarEdge Unveils New Photovoltaic Module-Embedded Products – May 20, 2010
SolarEdge Technologies has introduced a new line of distributed solar power harvesting products. The company says the new units include the first commercially available modules with embedded power optimization; power optimizers for 350 W modules; and 8 kW, 12 kW, and 15 kW three-phase inverters that expand the current range of PowerBoxes and inverters.
SolarEdge PowerBoxes are power optimizers performing maximum power-point tracking and monitoring on a module level to enable constraint-free design, improved maintenance and safety, and up to 25%more energy from residential and commercial PV systems, according to the company. These PowerBoxes are now embedded directly into solar modules manufactured by SolarEdge partners.
In addition, the company range of Add-on PowerBoxes now supports modules of up to 350 W. AOB350PowerBoxes are available from distributors worldwide, to be connected by installers and integrators to almost any crystalline silicon module.
A new L-shaped mounting bracket is also now available to support PowerBox mounting that is co-planar with the roof, in sloped roofs, and inbuilding-integrated photovoltaics applications.
These products and other new items will be formally introduced at Intersolar Europe next month.
