Schneider Electric's renewable energy unit has launched the Conext range of single-phase inverters in North America. The Conext inverters, designed for solar grid-tie applications in the residential and small commercial segments, are available in models ranging from 2.8 kW to 5 kW.
Conext inverters use Schneider Electric's Fast Sweep technology, containing a maximum power point tracking feature that helps to ensure increased energy harvest in shaded conditions, according to the company. The Conext range uses a high-frequency design in a compact enclosure.
The inverters contain an integrated DC and AC disconnect switch, are optimized for common service panel breaker sizes, and are easily installed as a single inverter for a single photovoltaic array or in a multiple-inverter configuration for larger PV systems, Schneider Electric adds.
