Enphase Energy’s IQ microinverters
Seventh-generation IQ microinverters are powered by Enphase’s software-defined architecture which results in an efficient design and a single hardware SKU worldwide. IQ 7 microinverters produce 11 percent more power, and are 31 percent lighter and 15 percent smaller than Enphase’s M215 microinverters, which they replace, said the company. Compared to the sixth-generation IQ 6 product, IQ 7 microinverters produce 4 percent more power, and are 19 percent lighter and 16 percent smaller.
The new IQ Microinverters offer an easier and faster installation experience with revolutionary two-wire cabling, and leverage semiconductor integration for higher reliability and better economies of scale, promises the firm. The 250 watts AC Enphase IQ 7 Micro and the 295 W AC Enphase IQ 7+ Micro will be followed by a new, high-power 320 W AC variant, the Enphase IQ 7X Micro, to address 96-cell modules. (nhp)
