From micro to P.O., central to string, solar inverters are getting more efficient. They’re getting smarter, too, with better monitoring capabilities, communication and even Wi-Fi. Manufacturers are also realizing it’s all about getting increased power density in leaner designs. We’ve listed a selection from each segment so you can compare models side by side and decide which is best for your project. This article is an extension of our Top 100+ Products feature in our 2013 December issue.

A Single Unit For Four Modules
The APS YC1000-3 is a single unit that connects four solar modules (up to 310W STC each) to provide from 208V to 480V 3-phase grid voltage. It maximizes power generation for each module to boost efficiency by up to 20%. The performance of each module can be individually monitored from a home computer.
