Viridian offers five versions of the new residential inverters, with powers ranging from 1 kW to 3 kW and efficiencies between 97.2% and 97.6%. Europe’s efficiency is 96.4–97.2 percent.
The company said it will offer its new Clearline inverters together with its roof-integrated solar power systems.
“Our new inverter products mean we are ready to offer the whole package with the added benefit of UK-based engineering and engineering support,” the company said in a statement. “In fact, several of our homebuilder partners have already added the Clearline Inverter to their solar specifications.”
Viridian offers the new product in five versions, with powers ranging from 1 kW to 3 kW and efficiencies between 97.2% and 97.6%. Europe’s efficiency is 96.4–97.2 percent. The maximum input power of the smallest device is 1.3 kW and the largest inverter is 3.9 kW.
The dimensions of the products are 295 mm x 230 mm x 113 mm and the weight is 5 kg. They have one MPPT input and a voltage range of 500 V to 600 V, with a maximum input voltage of 600 V. The inverters have an IP65 rated protection and cooling system based on natural convection.
The company said that the new product is suitable for 0.67 kW to 3.6 kW solar power installations and it will go on sale in September.
“Solar fire safety research has shown that the two main points of failure in a solar PV system were the DC connectors and the DC isolation switch,” the company said. “The Clearline Inverter is only available with an integrated DC isolation switch, eliminating the risks associated with a field-assembled external switch.”
Viridian Solar did not say where the new product will be manufactured.
