The Switch’s utility-grade solar inverter with its rugged outdoor design and totally self-contained liquid-cooling system received certification by TÜV of Germany on
June 5, 2012. Now with CE marking and declaration of conformity to ENEL, The Sun Switch PVI 1000 solar inverter fulfills all requirements outlined in the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) 2006/95/EC and the Directive of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) 2004/108/EC.
The Sun Switch optimizes solar power harvesting and LCOE (Levelized Cost Of Energy) in central inverter megawatt-scale photovoltaic power plants. Its design
offers 98% maximum system efficiency. It comes complete with its extensively field proven LVRT, which has been field-verified on multiple operating systems, meeting all major local grid codes, including those in Germany, the US and China.
