This allows for these lightweight units to be mounted in less than fifteen minutes as well as several mounting options available.
Fronius USA recently developed a new technology in the industry that features the strength of the string inverter integrated with the module-level monitoring technology seen in many smart solar systems. The Fronius FE Inverter Line allows for design flexibility, shade mitigation and module-level monitoring on the ground and works seamlessly with optimizers or Tigo’s Tier 1 smart module manufacturers.
