SolarEdge Power Optimizers
Panel Level Optimisation Create a new solution to overcome limitations :• Maximise power generation • Increase design flexibility • High resolution monitoring • Enhanced safety The SolarEdge power optimiser is a DC/DC converter which is connected by installers to each PV panel or embedded by panel manufacturers, replacing the traditional solar junction box. The SolarEdge power optimisers increase energy output from PV systems by constantly tracking the maximum power point (MPPT) of each panel individually. Furthermore, the power optimisers monitor the performance of each panel and communicate performance data to the SolarEdge monitoring portal for enhanced, cost-effective panel-level maintenance. Each power optimiser is equipped with the unique SafeDC™ feature which automatically shuts down panels’ DC voltage whenever the inverter or grid power is shut down. The MPPT per panel allows for flexible installation design with multiple orientations, tilts and panel types in the same string. When working with SolarEdge Inverters, SolarEdge power optimisers automatically maintain a fixed string voltage, allowing installers even greater flexibility with longer strings and strings of different lengths in order to design optimal PV systems. The SolarEdge power optimisers are compatible with c-Si and thin-film panels and have a 25-year warranty. To find more about SolarEdge power optimisers, please click here.
Grid-Connected Inverters: for Residential and Commercial Projects.
Single Phase InverterThe SolarEdge single phase inverter is specifically designed to work with the SolarEdge power optimisers. Because MPPT and voltage management are handled separately for each panel by the power optimiser, the inverter is only responsible for DC to AC inversion. Consequently, it is a simpler, more cost effective, more reliable solar inverter with a standard 12-year warranty, extendable to 20 or 25 years. The fixed string voltage ensures operation at the highest efficiency at all times independent of string length and temperature. In addition to its functionality as a DC-optimised PV inverter, the single phase inverter also manages battery and system energy as part of SolarEdge’s battery storage solution. Feature Highlights: – Solar inverters specifically designed to work with SolarEdge power optimisers – 2.5kW to 10kW inverter range – Superior efficiency – Standard 12-year warranty (extendable to 20 or 25 years) – Built-in panel-level monitoring receiver – Communication to internet via Ethernet, wireless connectivity (using Wi-Fi, ZigBee® or GSM plug-ins) – Supports PV and battery management as part of the StorEdge solution – IP65 / NEMA 3R – suitable for outdoor and indoor installations – Small lightweight and easy to install – 99% weighted efficiency (33%-50% less losses than the market standard) – High reliability due to lower heat dissipation – Up to 155% oversizing allowed To find more about SolarEdge single phase inverter, please click here.

Three Phase InverterThe SolarEdge three phase inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage, regardless of the number of panels in a string or environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimiser performance data from each PV panel. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge monitoring platform for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems. Feature Highlights: • Inverters specifically designed to work with SolarEdge power optimisers • Superior efficiency • Excellent reliability with standard 12-year warranty (extendable to 20 or 25 years) • Small, lightweight and easy to install • Built-in panel-level monitoring receiver • Internet connection through Ethernet or wireless connectivity (using Wi-Fi, ZigBee®, or GSM plug-ins) • IP65 / NEMA 3R – suitable for outdoor and indoor installations To find more about SolarEdge three phase inverter, please click here.
