APsystems unveils the QS1, a four-module, single phase microinverter for residential applications which offers a 75% reduction in installation time, while providing high peak output power and up to 3X faster data transmission speed than PLC. A wide MPPT voltage range will result in a great energy harvest for homeowners.The QS1 is designed to accommodate today's high output PV panels up to 375W, offering 300W AC output per channel. The unit also reduces installation time and costs, taking the place of four conventional microinverters per each QS1 installed while still providing four independent MPPT. The QS1 utilizes a common AC trunk cabling with the dual-module YC600, offering flexible mix-and-match compatibility on the same circuit to enhance site design capability and maximize circuit capacity. Both microinverters also utilize the same gateways; installers can choose from the ECU-R, for single or multi-residential installations, or the ECU-C, for applications requiring consumption monitoring and advanced contact/relay features. A 2.4GHz wireless Zigbee mesh network offers enhanced data transmissions speed. The QS1 builds on APsystems’ line of multi-module microinverters, offering reduced logistics costs, integrated communication and connection features, and a wide MPPT voltage range for greater energy harvest during low light conditions.
