Sputnik Engineering adds three devices to its SolarMax solar PV inverter series

Sputnik Engineering is adding three solar photovoltaic (PV) inverters in the 10-15 kW range for large-scale decentralised installations to its SolarMax series.

"For decentralised commercial, industrial, and agricultural large-scale solar plants with an homogeneous solar generator, two trackers are mostly already sufficient for ideal yields. Therefore, we have removed the third tracker and increased the input current per tracker with the new MT2 inverters," says Olaf Geistlinger, Product Manager for the SolarMax string inverters.

"This way, the devices are adapted even better to the requirements of this target application and can also offer an extraordinary price-performance ratio."

The three-phase MT2 models have efficiencies of up to 98% and they are equipped with a maximum of two string connections per tracker. This way string fusing should not be a requirement.

With a higher input current of 18 A per tracker, the MT2 inverters are particularly advantageous for high efficiency modules, the Swiss company says.
