Munich Upsolar, an international provider of solar PV modules, announced a range of smart module products optimized by SolarEdge. Integrating Upsolar’s PV modules with SolarEdge’s advanced power optimization technology, the smart solar products will offer customers a full range of intelligent solutions for residential, commercial and utility scale applications.
Upsolar’s smart modules integrate seamlessly with SolarEdge technology to increase the energy output of each module and expand design flexibility. By embedding SolarEdge’s optimizers directly into their modules during the manufacturing process, Upsolar can offer a lower balance of systems cost while maximizing roof utilization and power harvesting. In addition, users of the new smart products can remotely access performance monitoring software and ultimately enjoy safety with SolarEdge’s SafeDC™ feature, which automatically shuts down modules’ DC voltage levels when the inverter or grid power is down.
As part of a range of smart module offerings, Upsolar and SolarEdge will jointly introduce fully equipped smart module kits. Featuring SolarEdge equipped modules and inverters, the kits will provide customers with smart systems that require fewer components than any other smart module product on the market. The kits will offer multiple types of Upsolar smart modules – 60 and 72 cell poly and monocrystalline options – and SolarEdge inverters ranging from 2.2-17 kW (Europe) and 3-20 kW (North America). Fully certified for European (IEC), North American (UL) and Australian markets (CEC AUS), kits will soon be available worldwide.
