Phono Solar launches AC Module2011-09-19
THE WOODLANDS, TX, September 8th, 2011 - Phono Solar, one of the largest producers of mono crystalline and poly crystalline solar modules, has just launched the AC Module. The new product eliminates the need for DC wiring and centralized power inverters while offering greater productivity, reliability and performance.
Committed to producing high-quality solar modules, Phono Solar is recognized as an innovative leader in the photovoltaic industry. As a primary supplier for strategic installations in the US and abroad, the company offers proven success and strong bankability on their 25 year warranties.
The new AC Module is the latest in their impressive offering and is designed to eliminate the need for expensive DC components. Each AC Module is coupled with an inverter which converts DC power to usable AC power instantly, without a centralized inverter. Easy to design and install, the modules include pre-manufactured cables and are delivered ready for connection, for fast and inexpensive mounting.
AC systems are more efficient at transporting energy and do not incur electrical losses inherent in DC circuits, resulting in more uptime and an increase in kW-h generated for greater overall productivity. The robust AC Module features stainless steel hardware, inverter NEMA 4x, and no cooling vents meaning units remain clean and dry on the inside reducing system upkeep for enhanced reliability.
Every AC Module is maximum power point tracked for optimal performance. Inverter peak efficiency is at an impressive 95.8% and CEC weighed efficiency at 94.5%. An optional communication hub monitors each panel independently and shade only affects the shaded panel - not the entire system.
“Our new AC Module offers a number of advantages over traditional DC systems,” shares Chris Kamykowski, President of Phono Solar North America. “Without the DC side wiring, the modules are safer. And the modules are very reliable. No single point of failure will disable the system. Even individual PV breakage from extreme weather does not stop system power output.”
The Phono Solar AC Module features an impressive 25 year performance guarantee of 90% up to 10 years and 80% up to 25 years. The modules are CEC Program Registered and offer product certification to UL 1703 and IEC 61215 (ed.2). In addition, the modules hold a Class C fire rating.
