Detailed Description

The PV Powered 260 kW model has raised the bar once again for commercial inverter reliability, ease of installation, and lifetime maintainability. High reliability is enabled by market-leading features, including:

  • Bus bar power connections
  • Redundant cooling system
  • The widest temperature rating of any inverter in its class

Superior Reliability

  • Engineered bus bar power connections
  • Redundant cooling system with Smart Air Management
  • Low Parts Count reduces potential failure points
  • Card cage circuit board system minimizes electronic interconnections

Exceptional Installability

  • Top, bottom, and side entry with generous bending area and oversized bus bar landings
  • Large DC sub-combiner compartment with multiple fuse options
  • Full power output at 265 VDC enables more PV array design options
  • Exterior mounting flanges for fast and easy anchoring with no pre-drilling

Easy to Maintain

  • All maintenance and service via front access
  • Fast change circuit board system shortens service time
  • Load-rated AC and DC service disconnects

For the commercial market, Advanced Energy offers a wide range of inverter sizes for optimal stringing and design flexibility. Our commercial inverters set the industry standards in efficiency, high reliability, ease of installation, and lifetime maintainability.

Their 20+ year design life is enabled by an array of new market-leading reliability features, including bus bars for all power connections, a sealed electronics module, and an instrumented cooling system. The highly integrated systems were designed to save commercial installers time and money with best-in-class efficiency and the widest voltage window operating range with the lowest standard MPPT voltage of any three-phase inverter in the industry.

Serviceability is enhanced by a modular design that divides the inverter into easy-to-maintain sub-systems. Customers count on AE’s global scale, 30 years of power experience, and balance sheet confidence for optimum project financing and lifecycle performance—plus the best service and support team in the business.

The PVP260kW

The highly integrated system saves installers time and money by including load-rated AC and DC service disconnects, neutral-free installation, oversized bus bar landings, and generous cable bending area for top, bottom, and side cable entry options.

The PVP260kW inverter has a standard 295 VDC minimum MPPT and an optional full power 265 VDC minimum MPPT—the lowest MPPT voltage of any commercial inverter in the industry. This low input voltage option enables exceptional stringing capability with all PV module technologies, including new-thin film modules.

The PVP260kW model also simplifies performance monitoring by offering inverter-integrated solutions from market leaders Fat Spaniel, Draker, and Energy Recommerce. Additional options from PV Powered include integrated revenue-grade meter and sub-combiner monitoring. PV Powered backs all its commercial inverters with an industry-leading 10-year warranty and an unprecedented optional 20-year warranty, plus the best service and support team in the business.
