Lawrence, MA - April 23, 2015 - Solectria - A Yaskawa Company, a leading U.S. PV inverter manufacturer, announced the introduction of the PVI 36TL adding to its three-phase, 1000 VDC, transformerless string inverter line. The PVI 36TL sets the standard for the industry with 98.6% peak efficiency, 98.0% CEC efficiency and standard, integrated DC and AC disconnects.


Solectria's PVI 23/28/36TL line of inverters are designed to maximize return on investment (ROI) through their lightweight design, high efficiencies, easy installation, dual MPPT zones and wide MPPT range. Integrated customized options include factory-installed web-based monitoring, DC arc-fault protection, rapid shutdown and integrated DC fused string combiner. Utilizing these inverters in commercial applications will reduce PV system material and labor costs, including the cost of additional combiners.

"Adding this transformerless, three-phase string inverter aligns with our continuous growth strategy, broadening our product portfolio and keeping us at the forefront of the PV industry," said Phil Vyhanek, President of Solectria - A Yaskawa Company. "The PVI 36TL has the design flexibility our customers have come to expect from Solectria with an integrated, detachable wiring box, various mounting configurations and is NEC 2014 compliant with integrated arc fault and rapid shutdown."

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.
