SolarEdge Launches a New Line of North American Inverters with up to 98% Weighted Efficiency, and Extended Temperature Range


GRASS VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SolarEdge Technologies, a leading global provider of end-to-end solar power optimization systems and monitoring solutions, announced today the introduction of a new line of top efficiency, single phase solar inverters for the North American market.

SolarEdge inverters once again top the CEC list with an industry leading 98% weighted average efficiency. The new range of inverters is designed for North American installations, and can be ordered with an extended operating temperature range of -40°F - 140°F (-40°C - 60°C).

The SolarEdge inverters are specifically designed to work with SolarEdge power optimizers for maximum flexibility in system design for residential and commercial installations, enabling full roof utilization for more modules and larger capacity per PV system. To enhance design flexibility and grid compatibility, the range of SolarEdge inverters is now extended to include 3kW, 3.8kW, 5kW, 6kW and 7kW single phase inverters with grid support for 208, 240 and 277VAC.

John Berdner, General Manager for SolarEdge’s North America operations said, “The new line of inverters represents an evolutionary step forward ensuring SolarEdge products continuously meet the needs of the growing North American PV market. The North American solar market is quickly adopting distributed power optimization solutions as the industry focuses on ease of design and better return on investment.”

About SolarEdge Technologies

SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. provides end-to-end distributed solar power optimization and PV monitoring solutions, allowing maximum energy production for faster return on investment. The SolarEdge power optimizers perform MPPT per individual module while monitoring the performance of each module and communicating across existing power lines. Moreover, a fixed DC string voltage is maintained, allowing optimal efficiency of the SolarEdge PV inverter, which is tailor-made to work with power optimizers. As a result, the SolarEdge system provides optimal power, while enabling flexible design and optimal roof utilization. Module-level and whole-system visibility enhance PV monitoring and maintenance capabilities, and the unique SafeDC™ mechanism shuts down module voltage during installation, maintenance and firefighting for greater safety.
