Conext TX inverters use Schneider Electric's Fast Sweep technology, containing an innovative maximum power point tracking (MPPT) feature that helps ensure increased energy harvest in shaded conditions. They are easily installed as a single inverter for a single photovoltaic (PV) array or in a multiple-inverter configuration for larger PV systems.  

Also presented will be the new Schneider Electric Conext Core XC Series, a new line of central inverters designed for high efficiency and flexibility for any PV panel type and installation. The Atlas XC series has peak efficiencies of 98.7%, and its flexibility allows the inverter to be configured with voltage and power outputs up to 680 kVA. In addition, the Atlas XC series is designed to allow for DC inputs up to 1000 Vdc for longer string lengths.

Another highlight of the booth will be the Schneider Electric PV Box, a customizable pre-wired equipment package specifically designed to meet the growing demand of a large-scale grid-tied solar farms and large commercial installations in any region of the world, even in the harshest environments.
