KACO new energy introduces the blueplanet 50.0, 40.0 and 32.0 TL3 inverters in North America

Each power rating is available with integrated visible, lockable AC and DC disconnection means, nearly 98% CEC efficiency rating, and sealed electronics.

GRASS VALLEY, Calif., March 23rd 2013 —KACO new energy introduces the blueplanet 50.0, 40.0, and 32.0 TL3 inverters for the three phase commercial and utility scale market in North America.


Designed as a global platform, the blueplanet 50.0 TL3 product line is based on the field proven 39.0 TL3 with around 700 MW of installed capacity globally. The blueplanet 50.0 TL3 is designed for UL 1741 listing with 1000 VDC operation and 480 VAC grid tie operation. Three power ratings are available: 32, 40 and 50kW with the choice of a single MPP or three MPP model option.

Maximum energy yield, PV system design flexibility, safety, and low maintenance are the goals of the blueplanet 50.0 TL3 product line.
Each power rating is available with integrated visible, lockable AC and DC disconnection means, nearly 98% CEC efficiency rating, and sealed electronics. Operations and performance monitoring is achieved with a standard integrated webserver, on board data logging functions, a graphical user interface, and Modbus read and control functions for 3rd party monitoring.

Bill Reaugh, Senior Director of Product Management says: "We have designed this product after careful study of market trends in North America to meet the needs of solar designers, installers, and maintenance teams to ensure maximum flexibility, reliability, and energy harvest. With multiple sizes and configurations it provides great flexibility in project design for systems from 30 kW up to multi-megawatt PV systems."
