Schneider Electric says its line of three-phase inverters has expanded with the availability of four new products for the North American market. In the U.S., the Schneider Electric Xantrex GT500-480 grid-tie solar inverter is available now for ordering and will ship in the third quarter.
The Xantrex GT500-480 is a grid-tie solar inverter for large commercial and utility applications. Based on the inverter platform of the GT500MVX, the GT500-480 now features a new industrial design for improved reliability, consisting of a two-section enclosure with an inverter and DC section in one cabinet, and transformer and AC section in another.
In addition, three new inverters compliant with Ontario's feed-in-tariff program will be available to the Canadian market later this year.
