KACO new energy says its ultraverters are the first product that can be applied worldwide without any modifications – one component for all grid voltages.
The ultraverters blueplanet flex and blueplanet flexgate combine the best features of string and micro-inverter technology in one advanced concept. Due to a newly designed control system, multiple low voltage inverters can be connected in series up to the desired system output voltage.
Low voltage inverters are the core of the blueplanet flex ultraverter concept. Components can be chosen from a much broader pool used in equipment across many fields. Lower cost and higher volume components provide for better life expectancies, maximum uptime and easy replacement. KACO says higher yields, lower total cost of ownership and highest efficiency in its class make the blueplanet flex ideal for every owner of a residential or small commercial solar power plant.
Low voltage blueplanet flex combine in AC strings up to 277 V nominal to ensure safe handling of the units during installation and maintenance. Rapid disconnection at the module level ensures compliance with modern safety requirements for arc fault and fire fighter safety.
With patented control technology allowing for series AC connections, blueplanet flex is compatible with every voltage range worldwide using a single product SKU. Additionally, the blueplanet flex will complete every plant design challenge with 97% efficiency, regardless of PV project requirements.
The blueplanet flexgate communicates to data loggers and monitoring equipment via SunSpec Modbus RTU and TCP protocol. Furthermore, USB access to an onboard data logger with two weeks of local storage memory aids with troubleshooting.
