Eltek Valere THEIA™ HE-t Solar Inverter Scores “A Rating” in PHOTON International (11/2011)
PHOTON International, a prominent solar energy magazine, has awarded the THEIA 4.4 HE-t solar inverter it's “A rating” for performance at both medium and high solar irradiance.
“Essentially all results from the PHOTON test laboratory correspond with our own testing and also with what the Austrian Institute of Technology has previously tested and verified,” said Ingvar Apeland, executive vice president of Eltek's Renewable Division.
“Eltek Valere has been setting the standard in the power conversion industry for more than 40 years,” said David Leal, vice president of sales for North America. “The company is continuing this tradition with its high efficiency policy and its commitment to renewable energy, led by the THEIA HE-t line. The overwhelming interest from the market for our products confirms the validity of our approach.”
The state-of-the-art high frequency transformer technology built into the single phase THEIA HE-t makes these inverters the only devices on the market that combine maximum efficiency (97.3 percent) with galvanic isolation protection. The THEIA HE-t series inverters offer AC outputs from 2 kW to 4.4 kW and can be used for crystalline and thin film photovoltaic modules of all types.
The THEIA HE-t series inverters are compact, robust (IP65 and NEMA 4X protection class), offer guaranteed longevity and are virtually maintenance free. A flexible connection set, multi-language functionality, backlit color display and integrated web server enable quick configuration and easy operation. At locations where several THEIA HE-t inverters are in use, one unit can be installed as a central monitoring hub for single point access to transmit its settings to all of the other inverters. This saves monitoring and adjustment time for users and maximizes energy efficiency.
