National Semiconductor Corp. says it has passed rigorous testing and received product safety, emissions and environmental compliance certifications for its SolarMagic power optimizers. SolarMagic optimizers are designed to improve the output of solar arrays when affected by real-world conditions such as shade, debris and panel aging.
TUV Rheinland of North America performed the safety and emissions compliance testing and certified National's SolarMagic power optimizers to meet requirements for UL1741 and IEC 61010 safety standards, as well as FCC Part 15 (Class A&B) and EN 61000 emissions and immunity standards. The SolarMagic power optimizers comply with the UL1741 standard, which is well-recognized by the photovoltaics industry, the company adds.
MET Laboratories Inc. performed the environmental compliance testing and certified SolarMagic to meet the requirements for IEC 60529 (IP68, the highest possible ingress protection) and NEMA 250-2003 Type 6 enclosure. This rating ensures the product's electronics are well protected against elements including dirt, water and ice.
