By Renée Francoeur
April 28, 2015 – Solectria, PV inverter manufacturer, has introduced the PVI 36TL, adding to its three-phase, 1000 VDC, transformerless string inverter line. The PVI 36TL “sets the standard for the industry,” Solectria said, with 98.6% peak efficiency, 98.0% CEC efficiency and standard, integrated DC and AC disconnects.
According to Solectria, its 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”, Solectria said.
“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. “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.”
