SolarEdge Technologies, Inc’s S-Series new range of smart Power Optimizers is now available for commercial and industrial PV applications across North America and adds SolarEdge Sense Connect technology to its multi-layered approach for safety. SolarEdge Sense Connect is a technology that detects temperature increase at the connector level to prevent potential electric arcs. The SolarEdge Sense Connect technology joins an expanded range of safety features, among them the SafeDC technology that is designed to enable PV systems’ DC voltage to be automatically reduced to touch-safe levels (1VDC per module), in grid failures or when the inverter is shut down. Adding to these, the Rapid Shutdown feature enables installers to activate SafeDC at the flip of a switch, discharging the conductors to safe voltage levels within just 30 seconds. The S-Series Power Optimizer is designed to accommodate high power modules and bi-facial modules. Providing 99.5% efficiency and supporting two high power, high input current PV modules, the S-Series lowers LCoE thanks to high yield and enables longer and more powerful strings. In addition, the S-Series offers a simplified cable layout, allowing fast installation and reducing potential isolation faults.
