Yaskawa Solectria Solar is introducing a new line of American-made inverters for commercial and utility-scale applications: Solectria SLX.
The SLX 1000 inverters are offered in 60 and 65 kilowatt (kW) power levels and the SLX 1500 inverters are offered in 125 and 166 kilowatt (kW) power levels. They offer wireless HMI and connectivity, reducing the cost of installation and commissioning. Various options for the integrated combiner include fused or unfused inputs as well as PV connectors.
“Since Solectria Renewables was acquired by Yaskawa America in 2014, we have incorporated Yaskawa’s quality methodologies into our PV inverter design and production processes,” said Phil Vyhanek, President of Yaskawa Solectria Solar. “The SLX 1000 and SLX 1500 have endured testing to ensure that each individual component as well as the finished product will last beyond 20 years. PV project developers, owners, and EPCs will appreciate the new level of inverter reliability and durability, which drastically lowers the cost of installation and O&M, while increasing power production.”
