Sustainable Energy Technologies Ltd. says that its Sunergy LV (a low-voltage model) and Sunergy ELV (an extra-low-voltage model) inverters have been certified and listed by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) to UL 1741 and CSA C22.2 No.107.1-01 standards. The certification makes this technology commercially available for sale and installation across North America.
The CSA/UL certified products target the North American commercial market with a 208 volt AC output, peak conversion efficiencies in excess of 96% and a nominal 5,000 W power output. Follow-on products will include different power ratings and a 240 volt AC output for residential applications.
With an outdoor power rating ranging from -40 degrees C to 50 degrees C, the SUNERGY inverters are easily integrated into rooftop solar systems, reducing installation and ongoing maintenance costs associated with indoor-rated inverters, the company says.
