  • SolarEdge Technologies has revealed at RE+ the launch of the S-Series new series of smart Power Optimizers. Currently available for commercial and commercial PV applications throughout The United States and Canada, the future generation Power Optimizers adds SolarEdge Sense Connect technology to its multi-layered approach for safety.

SolarEdge Sense Connect is an industry-first modern technology that detects temperature level rise at the connector level to prevent possible electrical arcs. By detecting and reacting to uncommon connector overheating that might take place due to damaged setups or adapters, SolarEdge Sense Connect technology stops power flow prior to an arc can take place. With module-level site exposure, procedure and also maintenance (O&M) providers are educated of the determined place of the connector, so repairs can be carried out promptly as well as easily. This aids make the most of system safety and security and also uptime and minimize O&M expenses. The SolarEdge Sense Connect innovation signs up with an enhanced series of safety and security attributes, amongst them the SafeDC technology that is made to enable PV systems' DC voltage to be automatically minimized to touch-safe degrees (1V DC per module), in grid failings or when the inverter is shut down. Including in these, the rapid closure attribute allows installers to activate SafeDC at the flip of a button, releasing the conductors to secure voltage degrees within just 30 seconds.

The S-Series Power Optimizer is created to accommodate higher power modules as well as bifacial modules, which, because of the rear-side module inequality can suffer from even higher possible power loss. Providing 99.5% efficiency and also supporting two high-power, high-input present PV modules, the S-Series reduces Levelized Price of Energy thanks to higher return as well as allows longer and also a lot more effective strings

Furthermore, the S-Series uses a simplified cable design, enabling faster installation as well as lowering potential seclusion faults.

" Multi-layered safety innovation and also simplicity of setup are key differentiators of our modern technology, alongside breakthroughs in energy efficiency and also enhanced economics which are additional crucial variables for the proliferation of solar power," claimed Peter Mathews, basic supervisor of SolarEdge North America. "We will remain to establish standards in industry security by concentrating on cutting-edge options that bring even more dependability to the market."
