Power-One Aurora® Inverters Now Available in North America for 3kW to 4.2kW PV Installations

These grid-connected products, having already demonstrated acceptance in European markets, offer ultra-high efficiencies, installer-friendly designs, long service life, and competitive initial acquisition costs; significantly increasing ROI in photovoltaic installations from 3kW to 4.2kW.

The Aurora® PVI-3.0, PVI-3.6, and PVI-4.2 Series provide 208VAC and 277VAC single-phase and 240VAC (split phase) outputs rated at 3.0kW, 3.6kW, and 4.2kW; at up to 96.8% efficiency (CEC 96%). Other features include full-rated output power available up to 50°C ambient, and a 90 to 580VDC input range. Applications flexibility is enhanced by optional parallel-array-input configuration capabilities, and input-blocking diodes on PVI-4.2 models. A five-year warranty is extendable to twelve years as an option.


These latest-generation Aurora® products offer dual-input sections with independent, high-speed MPPTs that optimize energy harvesting from multiple PV strings oriented in different directions. Additional features include: grid-connected operation certified to international standards, integrated RS-485 and USB serial communications, IP65 (NEMA 4) rated enclosures, with or without integrated DC input disconnect switches.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV 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 over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
