Already renowned for their ease of installation, APS microinverters are now even more installer friendly.


The new ArrayApp mobile application from APS allows installers to map a PV array and complete the microinverter registration process in the field through their mobile device.

"Being able to register a whole PV installation from the job site really simplifies things for installers," said Tommy VanCleave, APS's Technical Support manager. "The ArrayApp is a great new tool that our APS installers will appreciate."

ArrayApp lets installers log in from a remote location and enter system information including microinverter serial numbers and a PV array map.

Serial numbers on each microinverter unit are scanned using a wireless barcode reader or the mobile device's camera, and automatically entered into the APS customer database for warranty and support.

Once the microinverter installation is in the database, PV system performance can be monitored by the owner through any web-enabled device via the APS Energy Monitoring and Analysis software (available separately).

ArrayApp is available for both iPhone and iPad through the Apple iTunes Store. The app requires iOS 7.0 or later, and offers English, German and simplified Chinese language support.

The Android version is available for download at www.apsamerica.com.

APS was founded in Silicon Valley in 2009, and is now a global leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of microinverters based on their own proprietary, leading-edge solar technology. APS America, representing APS in the US market, is based near Seattle.

APS ranked No. 2 in global market share among leading microinverter suppliers by shipments in 2013 (source: GTM Research).
