My shipment arrived on time, as predicted. Very, very good performance by EcoDirect. What more could you ask for from an online material supplier? Looks like the quantity from Quick Mount is spot on & the rails were bundled safely. EcoDirect will be my recommended source to my friends & neighbors for solar.

Optional Integrated AC and DC PV System Disconnect

AE continues to deliver industry-leading reliability and technical innovations that lower the total cost of a PV system installation and is now the only manufacturer of an integrated AC/DC PV system disconnect, listed to the UL 98 Standard, for residential inverters. The UL 98 Standard, ensures the integrated PV Powered disconnect meets all installation and inspection requirements of a PV system disconnect. Housed within an NEC-compliant wire raceway, the innovative disconnect consists of one enclosure with generous working room for installation. In addition to providing for a single point of connection from the utility service and PV array, the wire raceway’s optimized knockout locations also provide options for side, bottom, and back entry with minimized conduit bending, saving you installation costs. The wire raceway enables flush side-by-side mounting, eliminating the need for extra equipment and resulting in a cleaner, less expensive installation.

10-Year Residential Warranty

AE residential products include a 10-year warranty. There are no special club memberships, sales volumes to achieve, or fine print that you need your lawyer to read. Just like our inverters… it is simple. For ten years from the time of installation, our inverters are covered. If you have a problem, our field service team will either repair it on site or we will issue an RMA replacement and will compensate you for the time it will take to install it.

PVM1010 Data Monitoring Module

The PVM 1010 module provides secure, web-based access to your system’s status and performance history. With this option, you can maximize your system uptime and protect your solar investment. The PVM1010 module, along with the secure Internet-based server, is equivalent to a more expensive stand-alone data logging meter and communication interface without the extra cost and inconvenience of installation and maintenance of a separate metering system. After you register, you gain access to inverter information from anywhere you can connect to the Internet. Reports of power output and energy production trends, local weather conditions and forecasts, verification that your system is working at its full potential, and collection and export of data for service and maintenance planning are all included at no additional charge.
