OPTIMIZED BY SOLAREDGE: SOLAREDGE OBTAINS GLOBAL CERTIFICATION FOR ITS 2nd GENERATION OF SMART JUNCTION BOXES, REACHES MILESTONE OF TWO MILLION POWER OPTIMIZERS SHIPPED

SolarEdge obtains global certification for its 2nd generation smart junction boxes

Hod Hasharon, Israel – May 13 – SolarEdge Technologies, a leading global provider of end-to-end solar power optimization systems and monitoring solutions today obtained certification for its second generation of smart junction box products. The certification is valid for European IEC and EN as well as North American UL standards. SolarEdge smart junction boxes represent the module-embedded version of the market-leading SolarEdge power optimizer, incorporating power optimization, safety and module-level monitoring into a junction box. The first generation was installed in over 20MW of PV systems. The acquired certification allows module manufacturers to easily upgrade standard modules to smart modules; it is valid for all standard module categories and applicable worldwide. Due to its unique design and high efficiency, SolarEdge smart junction boxes have zero impact on a module's temperature.


SolarEdge reaches milestone of two million power optimizers shipped

In addition, SolarEdge announced today that it has reached the milestone of two million power optimizers shipped worldwide. In all, the company's power optimizers are installed in more than 45 countries.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
