Power-One Aurora® Inverters Now Available in North America for 3kW to 4.2kW PV Installations

These grid-connected products, having already demonstrated acceptance in European markets, offer ultra-high efficiencies, installer-friendly designs, long service life, and competitive initial acquisition costs; significantly increasing ROI in photovoltaic installations from 3kW to 4.2kW.

The Aurora® PVI-3.0, PVI-3.6, and PVI-4.2 Series provide 208VAC and 277VAC single-phase and 240VAC (split phase) outputs rated at 3.0kW, 3.6kW, and 4.2kW; at up to 96.8% efficiency (CEC 96%). Other features include full-rated output power available up to 50°C ambient, and a 90 to 580VDC input range. Applications flexibility is enhanced by optional parallel-array-input configuration capabilities, and input-blocking diodes on PVI-4.2 models. A five-year warranty is extendable to twelve years as an option.


These latest-generation Aurora® products offer dual-input sections with independent, high-speed MPPTs that optimize energy harvesting from multiple PV strings oriented in different directions. Additional features include: grid-connected operation certified to international standards, integrated RS-485 and USB serial communications, IP65 (NEMA 4) rated enclosures, with or without integrated DC input disconnect switches.
