Portage, IN, May 2017 - String inverter manufacturer Fronius updates their hands-on installer qualification trainings, which now include system design, product applications and communications, while still covering service and onsite warranty repairs. After completing the trainings, installers are certified Fronius Service Providers (FSPs), offering high quality solar installations and field-service.


Fronius' vision is to make 24 hours of sun, a world 100% powered by renewables, a reality. This requires technologies and solutions to generate and store renewable energy with incomparable efficiency and to distribute and consume energy in a smart way. However, it takes more than technologies. It also takes qualified installers, who provide these solutions to solar customers. Therefore, Fronius conducts in-depth trainings for system design, installation, data communications and field-service to solar installers.

Fronius Service Providers offer high-quality installations and trusted service, with an image of quality by being Fronius certified and branded. Solar shoppers or system owners can find certified installers easily on the Fronius Solar.web Online Installer Search. As a further incentive for installers, Fronius provides FSP exclusive events and webinars throughout the year.

Furthermore, Fronius believes that field-serviceability of inverters is critical to making solar more reliable and more sustainable. The FSP program eliminates the need for inverter exchanges. Fronius Service Providers are able to service inverters on site. Troubleshooting and repair can be done in one site visit, cutting the number of truck-rolls in half and guaranteeing maximum system uptime as well as satisfied system owners.

The new FSP qualification trainings take place in June at the Fronius USA headquarters in Portage, IN. The trainings include an opportunity to meet with Fronius' entire staff from Marketing to Technical Support. These are the dates and covered topics:

June 6th: Fronius Residential Solutions Training
June 7th: Fronius Installation & Best Practices Training
June 8th: Fronius Commercial Solutions Training

Solar installers are welcome to register for either all days of training or for a specific day. Course registrants are to arrange their own travel. The cost of the course includes the training, literature, swag, meals, and a portion of this can be used as a credit towards an FSP kit. The kit is a collection of the most common inverter spare parts. This kit is highly recommended, as it allows the installer to fully utilize the benefits of the FSP program.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
