Smart optimisation of module performance

The solar inverters of the Plenticore plus, Piko IQ and Piko 10 to Piko 20 series are now compatible with the performance optimisers from Maxim Integrated.

Smart optimisation of module performance
Greater flexibility in the planning of solar systems, including other elements such as EV charging.

Kostal offers a simple and cost-effective solution for increasing yields. Maxim optimisers, for example, are integrated in solar modules from Jinko Solar, so there is no additional installation work and no cost for additional equipment. Inverters are also easy and convenient to install: No changes need to be made either to the equipment itself or to the firmware.

In addition, the Maxim optimisers already work at the substring level. This means considerably greater flexibility in the planning of systems, since the optimised modules produce the greatest possible energy regardless of orientation or shading. The solar installer has a wide range of options for different string lengths, orientations or shaded roof surfaces. (mfo)
