Module Add-On / Retro fit Power Optimizers


Intersolar Award Winner 2012

The SolarEdge module add-on power optimizer is connected by installers to C-Si and thin-film modules. Ease of installation is completed by simply clipping the power optimizer to the module frame or by attaching it to the mounting rail with an optional Mount Kit. The add-on power optimizer is compatible with all framed modules supplied by Frankensolar to ensure any solution may be Optimized by SolarEdge. The SolarEdge power optimizer optionally attaches to the roof mounting rails with the Frankensolar "Optimizer Mount Kit" which keeps on-roof labor and mounting costs to a minimum.

Feature highlights of the SolarEdge Optimizers:

  • Per-module Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) - ideal for mitigation of shade, module miss-match and arrays with multiple aspects
  • Superior efficiency (99.5%) peak performance in both mismatched & unshaded conditions - ensures maximum module performance from any given condition
  • Designed for extreme environmental conditions - the Optimizers are designed & built to last
  • 25 year reliability and warranty - matches industry standard PV warranties for whole of life solution
  • Advanced, real-time performance measurement - module level monitoring enabled when used in combination with SolarEdge inverters*
  • Automatic module DC voltage shut-down for installer and firefighter safety - ultimate safety at the each module
  • Independent optimization technology (IndOP™) - allows operation with any inverter and requires no additional interface hardware (OPA models only)

* Module level monitoring is available only when installed with the SolarEdge inverters. No hardware or wiring is required to transmit data from the power optimizers to the inverter as the monitoring sensors and transmitters are built into the SolarEdge power optimizer and solar inverter. Measurement data is transmitted over the regular power lines.
