Direct Grid launches Micro-Inverters in OEM Series and SMART Series [Video]
Direct Grid's advanced micro-inverters power the innovative OEM Series and SMART Series of micro-inverters
At the Solar Power International Conference of 2009, Direct Grid Technologies first launched the OEM series and SMART series of micro-inverters for thin-film PV manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) interested in offering turnkey systems. The Buildaroo News Team interviewed Frank about the Direct Grid micro-inverters and our video interview below is definitely worth watching. We also have further details below.
The Direct Grid Technologies OEM series and SMART series micro-inverters are devices that convert direct current (DC) from a single solar module (panel) to alternating current (AC). Unlike central or string inverters that aggregate and convert the power generated by an entire array of solar modules, these micro-inverter convert the DC power from a single solar module to AC. When connected to a central or string inverter, the solar modules are all connected in series. However, when they have micro-inverters, the modules are all connected in parallel.
Direct Grid's SMART Series micro-inverters also incorporate additional communication functionality to enable theft prevention and remote monitoring via a separate web-based user interface or phone application. Both the Direct Grid OEM Series and SMART series micro-inverters offer safeguards in the event of power outages and fire.
