ISG PV power inverters
Eaton Expands its Photovoltaic (PV) Product Range
Vienna … The new ISG PV power inverters allow Eaton to expand its product portfolio for the photovoltaic market. As one of the renewable energies, the photovoltaic sector is showing high growth rates. However, the efficient use of solar energy is not only a trend but an essential requirement due to the growing worldwide demand for electricity. For a long time, Eaton has had many years of expertise in photovoltaic products and is now adding the ISG PV power inverter to its product portfolio.
The power inverter is a core component in any photovoltaic system. PV power inverters convert the DC current of PV generators into AC current. As this is a power inverter that is integrated in the supply grid, the optimum output current amplitude depends on the power supplied by the PV generator.
In Europe, the present demand for photovoltaic systems is particularly strong. The Eaton power inverter has been specially developed for the requirements in the EMEA and in France, Italy, the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Austria and Switzerland for domestic applications in 4600W and 6000W (Italy).
In order that any owner of a photovoltaic system can measure precisely how high the current yield is and how much current his own power station is actually producing, an xComfort radio transmitter passes on the data of the power inverter to a room manager with a power management function, directly in the living room. Here the data can be read conveniently from the display. The power inverter completes Eatons extensive PV product portfolio.
The ISG PV power inverter is available in five versions with IP43 protection for indoor use, and in two versions with IP65 (ISG series for indoor and outdoor use). All ISG variants are easy to install and equally easy to operate. ISG power inverters have an integrated LCD display that shows the entire status information, which can also be called. Eaton placed considerable importance on an elegant, modern and compact design for the power inverter with minimum dimensions. Eaton PV power inverters offer a higher power capacity and a greater efficiency than similar products of the same size. The highly reliable Eaton power inverter is maintenance free and is designed with convection cooling. Its quiet operation runs without the need for fan. Another feature is a very high efficiency of over 96 % as well as an MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking). A technically outstanding PV power inverter must after all be able to achieve maximum power from any PV generator in different conditions.
The ISG series is offered with a standard USB interface. Other product features: Integrated separate ENS isolating switch to VDE 0126-1-1/ DK5940. Furthermore, a type B IEC 62423 residual current device is not required. The PV power inverter for grid connection is supplied with operating instructions, mounting frame, securing screws, connection plate and cable gland (M25).
