These microinverters are the affordable versions added to Hoymiles classic HMS series. The C as well as D series all included 1,600-V, 1,800-V and 2,000-V output power choices and can be used with mainstream high-powered PV modules

  • HMS-1600C/ D-4T: Used with 320 to 540 W+ PV modules
  • HMS-1800C/ D-4T: Used with 360 to 600 W+ PV modules
  • HMS-2000C/ D-4T: Used with 400 to 670 W+ PV modules.

They have 4 input networks, meaning that one microinverter can be connected to four photovoltaic panels at once. The CEC peak efficiency is up to 96.7%, which stands for the leading level in the industry as well as promises greater solar yield, lower per-watt costs as well as much shorter payback duration. The superb 99.8% MPPT efficiency means that the microinverter can virtually completely track the maximum power point of the modules, for that reason delivering the most effective solar harvest for individuals.

With the IP67 enclosure rating, Hoymiles microinverters can still perform consistently even after a short immersion in water. This ensures the safety as well as long life of the microinverters.

What makes the new C and D series different from the previous HMS series is that they have two MPPTs as opposed to four, meaning that 2 panels share one MPPT. This twist offers a great balance in between effective performance as well as affordability. Both series attribute Sub-1G wireless connection which makes it possible for greater dependability as well as communication over longer distances when coupled with Hoymiles' data transfer units (DTU).

As with various other Hoymiles microinverters, both recently released series are connected to Hoymiles' smart tracking system, S-Miles Cloud, so customers can access aesthetic data on the system's energy production and usage, as well as get positive alerts if the installment needs interest.

Though high-powered microinverters are extra popular amongst company owner, they are additionally an excellent choice for homeowners. This is because of the fact that the high power score can future-proof the home residential property in case the energy demand grows as time goes by.

"We are regularly considering delivering the most effective energy option to our clients with lower costs. This is likewise how we strive to make open power for all. By optimizing item style as well as making innovations, we desire much more users to accessibility clean solar energy at inexpensive rates," claimed Steven Zhang, elderly item engineer at Hoymiles.
