                                  Dual module microinverter
LeadSolar Energy, Inc. has announced the release of their LS600-Z series dual module microinverters. With a maximum power output of 700Ws, the LS600-Z
can support two 60- or 72-cell modules exceeding 400Ws each. The integrated 10AWG trunk cable and current selectable option allows for 16, 20, or 24 panels to daisy chain on to one 30A branch circuit. Zigbee communication offers per panel visibility without the need for a hardwired communication channel.

New robust, high voltage capacitor series
TDK Corporation announced the
EPCOS MKP Y2 series capacitors for EMI suppression. This new series is designed for rated voltages of 300 VAC, and offer a permissible rated voltage of 350 VAC. The capacitances of the B3203* series range from 4.7 nF to 1.2 μF. Even under harsh environmental conditions, the capacitors offer a stable capacitance value. They are certified according to IEC 60384-14:2013/ AMD1:2016 and classified in accordance with "Grade III high robustness under high humidity Test B". This is verified by a temperature, humidity, bias (THB) test at 85°C, 85% relative humidity and 350 VAC operating voltage, at which a capacitance drop of no more than 10% may occur.
The maximum operating temperature
is 110°C. The capacitors are approved in accordance with UL and EN and qualified to AEC-Q200. Depending on their capacitance, they are available with a lead spacing between 15mm - 37.5mm. The case and the epoxy resin sealing comply with UL94 V-0. The possible applications of the new Y2 capacitors include EMI suppression in filters that are subjected
to harsh environment conditions and demand higher rated voltages, such
as those in photovoltaic inverters or automotive applications.

Tariff-free inverter
Yaskawa Solectria Solar confirms that its new SOLECTRIA XGI premium quality inverters are designed and manufactured in the U.S.A., and exempt from Section 301 tariffs. In addition to the tariff exemption, SOLECTRIA XGI inverters offer the following advantages: the XGI inverters are Buy America Act (BAA) compliant, provide cyber-secure communication with servers based in the United States, and are built of high quality and tested to extreme reliability standards. The SOLECTRIA
XGI 1000 inverter production began in September and the SOLECTRIA XGI 1500 inverters will be available in early 2019. Yaskawa Solectria Solar is accepting orders on both inverters now.

     Get Out
of the Stone Age!
Most rooftop solar racks are designed around ballast blocks or cement pavers. But ballasted rack systems can move around on the roof, grind broken pieces of ballast into the roofing membrane, and leave the building vulnerable to leaks and other roof problems. More important, many buildings cannot accommodate the dead load weight that ballasted systems require.
Move beyond the Stone Age with PowerGrip!
The OMG PowerGrip family of products was designed to reduce ballast from commercial solar racking systems by providing a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members. Once secured in place, properly installed PowerGrips minimize rack movement and remain watertight.
Let us show you how a PowerGrip from OMG Roofing Products can help bring your next solar project out of the Stone Age.
                                                           Superior productivity. Superior performance.
