New PV string inverter with 1,500 volt DC technology
The new INGECON SUN 160TL photovoltaic inverter provides up to 160 kilowatts (if connected to a 690 volt AC network) from a single unit weighing only 75 kilograms. Its 1,500 volt DC technology allows it to reach a maximum efficiency of up to 99.1 per cent. The INGECON SUN 160TL makes it possible to drastically reduce the total number of inverters required for a PV power plant. No combiner boxes are needed (either on the DC or the AC side), and because this PV inverter does not require a neutral wire, it enables up to a 20 per cent of cost reduction in AC cabling.
The INGECON SUN 160TL features Power Line Communication (PLC), Ethernet and Wi-Fi communications as standard. These communications, together with the webserver that is integrated into the inverter, enable a fast and reliable commissioning using a mobile phone, a tablet or a laptop. Furthermore, it is compatible with an external Cloud Connect software.
