Intersolar Europe: A new variety of innovative solar inverters
Fronius cooperates with Loxone to integrate the charging stations for electric vehicles into self-consumption.
Hot core in the inverterSMA has kept its feet for a few years, as far as real innovations are concerned. The engineers from Niestetal now had a completely new inverter concept. The Core 1 is a string inverter for commercial applications with 50 kilowatts of power. He implements the new concept of the so-called hot core. This means no atomic reactor, but the special arrangement of the cooler in the device center.
Fronius reports an increase of 37 percentIn the segment of small inverters for private customers, the standards are set by smaller providers such as Fronius or Kostal. "We have a crazy year that challenges us very much," comments Martin Hackl, head of the Solar Department of Fronius. "Our plans were far exceeded. By the end of April, we had a 37 per cent higher order backlog than in the previous year. At the moment it's just a lot of fun. "
Fronius has already begun years ago to optimize its Snap-Inverter for its own consumption. The battery is controlled by the inverter, which also manages the solar strings. In addition, relay contacts are available for free connection, for example, of current-intensive consumers. Emergency power is also possible: "Emergency power is a topic that electrifies every sales talk," confirms Martin Hackl.
