2. Single Phase and Off-Grid Applications: For professional installers, a comprehensive course on installing the Schneider Electric Xantrex XW System and Xantrex GT Single Phase Series.

Schneider Electric has been a trusted renewable energy leader for over 20 years, with best-in-class rooftop and ground mount panel-to-grid solutions, and turnkey design, supply and installation.

Included in the Schneider Electric exhibit at Solar Canada 2010:

Schneider Electric Xantrex GT500 MVX Grid Tie Solar Inverter (FIT compliant)

The Xantrex GT500 MVX is a grid tie solar inverter designed to interface directly with a medium voltage transformer for utility scale solar applications. The inverter has a highly efficient design with a CEC efficiency of 97%. It can be installed indoors or outdoors and comes with space heaters for cold weather applications. Schneider Electric can provide the GT500 MVX as part of a complete solution in a PV BOX including DC combiners with string monitoring, MV transformer and all associated peripheral equipment.

Schneider Electric Conext™ Grid Tie Inverters (North America) 2.8, 3.3, 3.8, 5.0 kW

The new Schneider Electric Conext Grid Tie Inverter has been designed to offer improved reliability and a low installed cost through ease of installation and integrated features. The Conext inverter is a proven, high-frequency design in a compact enclosure and may be installed as a single inverter, for a single photovoltaic (PV) array, or in a multiple-inverter configuration for large PV systems.

Schneider Electric Xantrex XW MPPT 80 600 Solar Charge Controller

The XW MPPT 80 is an innovative solar charge controller that accepts array voltages up to 600V; significantly reducing system wiring gauges and conduit costs. The Xantrex XW MPPT 80 600 is a PV charge controller that tracks the maximum power point of a PV array to deliver the maximum available current for charging batteries. When charging, the XW MPPT 80 600 regulates the battery voltage and output current based on the amount of energy available from the PV array and present state-of-charge of the battery.


Schneider Electric offers customized, scalable and flexible monitoring services, including remote monitoring and control. Solutions can reduce operational costs with automated management and reliable data acquisition, provide information in real time, with alarms and reports, and offer interoperability with other systems such as CCTV and access control.
