Schneider Electric intros central inverter at Intersolar

Schneider Electric will introduce the Xantrex XC Series of central inverters at Intersolar North America. The inverters target high efficiency and flexibility for various PV panel and installation types.

July 11, 2011 — Schneider Electric’s Renewable Energies Business will introduce the Schneider Electric Xantrex XC Series of central inverters at Intersolar North America. The inverters, shipping in early 2012, target high efficiency and flexibility for various photovoltaics (PV) panel and installation types.

The XC series has peak efficiencies of 98.7%, and the inverter can be configured with voltage and power outputs up to 680 kVA. It allows for DC inputs up to 1000Vdc for longer string lengths.

Schneider Electric will also promote its single- and small three-phase Conext Series Grid Tie Solar Inverters ranging from 1.5 to 20kW. Conext inverters offer maximum power point tracking (MPPT) using Schneider Electric’s FastSweep technology. Conext inverters can be installed as a single inverter for a single photovoltaic array, or in a multiple-inverter configuration for larger PV systems, integrating into a complete Schneider Electric solar solution for residential and building customers.

While at the Schneider booth, check out the XW MPPT 80 solar charge controller for PV array voltages up to 600VDC; the Xantrex GT30 three-phase, bi-polar grid-tie solar inverter; and the Schneider Electric pre-wired PV Box.

Schneider Electric will present these products in Booth 7510 at Intersolar North America, July 12-14 in San Francisco. Bentek Solar, which designs balance of system components like solar combiners and recombiners for Schneider Electric equipment, will be exhibiting at booth 7564, West Hall L1.

Global Product Line Manager Andrew Riegler will speak at the Intersolar North America conference session on Series Balance of Systems – Tracking of PV Strings: Toward Optimal Harvest Efficiency and Maximum ROI, on July 13 from 12:10 – 12:35 at the InterContinental Hotel, L3.

Schneider Electric offers integrated products for energy and infrastructure, industrial processes, building automation, and data centers/networks, as well as residential applications. Learn more at
