DALLAS, Oct. 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SOLAR POWER INTERNATIONAL -- Power-One, Inc. (Nasdaq:PWER), a leading provider of renewable energy and energy-efficient power conversion and power management solutions, today announced that the company will present new products from its AURORA® range at Solar Power International.
At Solar Power International, Power-One will present the new category AURORA Vision consisting of monitoring and control products, services and solutions.
In addition, Power-One will also launch the new AURORA MICRO-0.3 micro-inverter as well as its DC/DC power optimizer and the AURORA ULTRA-1400, the largest inverter currently available with an output of up to 1.4 MW.
"The new offerings expand our broad array of products and services for the solar market," said Dr. Alex Levran, President of Renewable Energy Solutions at Power-One. "We are excited to present not only several new inverters which combine high innovation content and key features, but also to introduce the AURORA Vision offering which provides greater system control and yield for our customers."
With the new category AURORA Vision, Power-One helps its customers to maximize the return of investment of renewable energy projects through better understanding and communication between the user and the installation.
The new AURORA Vision has three key offerings: software, hardware and accessories. To maximize system energy output while minimizing costs, the software includes a full range of system fault management, diagnostics, asset tracking, performance index and alerting services as well as revenue information. The hardware section of AURORA Vision offers equipment designed to capture data and environmental information to allow the transfer between inverter, installation and owner. Accessories such as the desktop monitoring system and the EVO Easy control, which help to monitor the performance of connected inverters over the internet, complete the AURORA Vision portfolio.
The MICRO-0.3 is a real alternative to the traditional string inverters Power-One is well-known for and offers customers attractive benefits. The device minimizes efficiency losses in challenging conditions, because every module benefits from a separate MPPT creating the optimum power curve for individual panel conditions. Moreover, the micro-inverter allows for controlling every module individually, ease of plant expansion without the hassle of string re-sizing or panel matching and offers efficiency ratings of up to 95.5 percent.
The new ULTRA-1400 is the largest solar power inverter currently in the Power-One AURORA product range. Designed for large utility-grade installations this liquid-cooled, high-powered inverter offers maximum power for a minimum footprint. The new concept also features an IP65 enclosure, low maintenance and operational costs. Industry-leading power conversion efficiencies of up to 98.7 percent, combined with up to four high-speed MPPT channels, optimize energy harvesting across a wide array of operating conditions. This very large inverter system significantly reduces the wiring requirements and on-site testing thanks to separated and dedicated compartments for DC and AC.
