Bentek Solar Releases Bi-Polar Solar Combiner during Solar Power International

Schneider Electric will introduce its Solar Bi-Polar Array Combiner for the first time during Solar Power International, which takes place October 12-14, 2010.

SAN JOSE, CA ― October 2010 ― Bentek Solar, a leader in the design and manufacture of optimized Configure-To-Order (CTO) solar combiners and re-combiners, announces that Schneider Electric will introduce its Solar Bi-Polar Array Combiner for the first time during Solar Power International, which takes place October 12-14, 2010.


"The Bi-Polar Combiner was designed and manufactured specifically for solar inverters such as the Schneider Electric Xantrex GT30 Grid Tie Inverter. Customers have been requesting a Bi-Polar combiner and a Grid Tie Inverter that works as a transformerless bi-polar design. This gives customers a very small, efficient footprint which lends well to rooftop and electrical room installations," said John H. Buckley, leading the sales and marketing at Bentek Solar.

Bentek Solar's Bi-Polar Combiner is specifically designed for Bi-Polar Arrays up to 00VDC. The combiners feature a finger-safe design and options for integrated disconnect and current sense. Additionally, all Bi-Polar Combiners come standard with lockable NEMA 4X fiberglass enclosures and are UL1741 listed and CSA 22.2 certified.

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.
