SOLAREDGE EXPANDS SMART MODULE PORTFOLIO WITH LEADING MODULE MANUFACTURERS

Smart modules will be on display at Intersolar Europe

Shanghai, China – June 6, 2012 – SolarEdge Technologies, a leading global provider of end-to-end solar power optimization systems and monitoring solutions, announced today that it is cooperating with leading module manufacturers to expand the offering of smart modules to the market. SolarEdge will present smart modules with embedded power optimization, safety and PV monitoring capabilities at Intersolar Europe in Munich, Germany, one of the world's largest solar energy trade fairs.


SolarEdge will showcase at Intersolar, modules from JA Solar, Yingli Green Energy, LDK Solar, Upsolar Group, Phono Solar, and Tianwei New Energy who will benefit from SolarEdge's next generation power optimizer, including the new IndOP™ technology. Smart modules with SolarEdge's new IndOP™ technology can operate without the need for additional interface hardware and can work directly with any third party inverter as well as with the broad range of SolarEdge solar inverters.

"We are very excited about the market potential for smart modules optimized by SolarEdge because by using SolarEdge technology, we are enjoying the highest product quality and performance." Says Mr. Jiang Yong, VP & GM of Module Manufacturing from JA Solar. "With SolarEdge's large existing install base, 25 years warranty, field experience and global presence, we are confident about entering this market."

Smart modules optimized by SolarEdge, available in the market since last year by Solon Energy, are able to perform module-level MPPT, thus eliminating power losses caused by module mismatch, shading, and dust collection. The SolarEdge power optimizer has the highest known efficiency in the industry of 99.5%. In addition, SolarEdge power optimizers enhance system maintenance by monitoring the performance of each module. The smart modules also include the built-in SafeDC™ feature which automatically shuts down a modules' voltage whenever inverter or grid power is shut down. This safety mechanism mitigates high-voltage risks during installation, maintenance and firefighting.

SolarEdge will be presenting its products and services from June 13 to15 at the Intersolar Europe trade fair in Munich Hall, C3 at Stand 110. About

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
