Magnetek Inc. says it has received ETL certification to the UL 1741-2010 and CSA C22.2 No. 107.1 standards for E-Force PV-1000, its 1 MW, 1,000 V solar inverter. The inverter was tested and certified by Intertek and is now qualified to display the ETL certification mark.
The ETL mark indicates the E-Force solar inverter meets product safety requirements for connection to a U.S. or Canadian utility power grid or a grid in any country where UL and CSA standards are accepted, the company explains.
The air-cooled E-Force inverter is designed for large grid-tied solar applications, such as ground-mount installations. E-Force PV-1000 integrates two 500 kW inverters in a single enclosure, which can reduce the skid footprint by as much as 30% compared with independent 500 kW competitive inverters, according to the company.
