Eltek THEIA™ HE Enhanced Performance Solar Inverters and New Solar Energy Storage System to be Showcased at Intersolar Munich 2013

Solar energy system helps solar producers with self-consumption to enable less reliance on traditional utility companies

Intersolar Europe 2013


MUNICH--Eltek, the world leader in high efficiency power systems for telecommunications, industrial applications and renewable energy projects, announced it will showcase its new THEIA™ HE-es system and updated THEIA™ HE-t solar inverter product range at Intersolar Munich (19-21 June).

With the increasing acceptance of photovoltaic (PV) installations around the world and the trend of ever increasing energy costs, the next step for PV generation is increased self-consumption by the power producer.

Eltek's THEIA™ HE-es combines the THEIA HE-t high-efficiency solar inverter, an IP21-level enclosure, and batteries to store between 2.4 kilowatt hours (kWh) and 18.2 kWh of solar energy. The storage system enables PV system owners to make greater use of the energy they produce at a time when they need it.

The THEIA HE-es features include dynamic battery management that can use batteries only when most profitable. The system also facilitates adjustable charge and discharge limits, and is configurable for all battery technologies, including Lithium, NiCad, lead acid or sodium batteries.

Using a proprietary architecture, and when connected into the THEIA™ HE-t, the THEIA™ HE-es has total DC-AC power conversion efficiency above 90 percent, providing users with the optimal PV energy storage system.

New THEIA HE-t Features

Building on the success of the THEIA™ HE-t inverter, new models will be available that will include integrated remote power level adjustment (PLA), system protection interface (SPI) inputs and configuration, S0 smart meter bus integration, PV shading loss reduction and energy management outputs for consumer goods control.

Lightweight and compact, THEIA™ HE-t inverters offer a maximum efficiency of 97.3 percent, flexible connection sets, backlit color display and integrated web-server for quick configuration and easy operation.

The Eltek THEIA™ HE-es and updated HE-t product lines are available from August 2013 from Eltek's worldwide sales force.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
