SPI 2014 - Solectria Renewables Announces Accessory Enhancements to its Transformerless Inverters

Solectria Renewables, LLC, a leading U.S. PV inverter manufacturer, announced today at Solar Power International in Las Vegas, Nevada, the introduction of installation accessories for the PVI 3800-7600TL and PVI 14-36TL transformerless inverters.

The value-add accessories reduce overall installation costs and time.

The new accessories for the PVI 14-36TL, three-phase, transformerless inverters include:

•Shade cover – especially designed for inverters mounted at a 15 degree tilt angle; it protects the inverter from harsh weather and direct sunlight/extremely hot temperatures while reducing thermal gain on the inverter and increasing energy harvest.

•AC & DC Disconnect Covers – tamper resistant cover for AC & DC disconnects; for customers that have inverters in public places so the disconnects cannot be turned while inverter is running.

•Simple and Easy Mounting Bracket – a ballasted mounting system with no roof penetration; inverters may be mounted at 15 or 30 degree angle; simple, quick and easy way to mount inverters with a PV array.

Solectria has introduced a rapid shutdown combiner option that can be paired with its single-phase residential inverter offering, PVI 3800-7600TL. It offers customers a solution to NEC 2014, Article 690.12 requiring single-phase installations to shutdown immediately at the source if the inverter cannot be mounted near the array.

"Solectria Renewables continuously seeks to improve its products and its customers' overall system and installation costs," said Phil Vyhanek, President of Solectria Renewables. "The new transformerless options enhance Solectria's product offering providing customers what they need and have asked us to provide."

Solectria Renewables will be in booth 842 at Solar Power International. Solectria will also host two trainings on meeting new arc fault detection and rapid shut down requirements and being a good citizen of the grid. For more information on these trainings or to sign up, please click here.

In addition, Solectria's CTO, Michael Zuercher-Martinson, will speak during the Advanced Inverters and Deployment session where he will discuss the importance of frequency ride through and droop function to a PV system and reactive power control. To learn more, please click here.
