Ginlong Technologies is rolling out its portfolio of SunSpec-certified residential, hybrid and commercial inverters to the U.S. market. Upon successful completion of the SunSpec Modbus certification, Solis single and three phase inverters now include the SunSpec communication protocol for rapid shutdown, in accordance with NEC 2017-2020 module-level requirements.
The SunSpec-certified Solis portfolio will be available in the U.S. in Q2 of this year. It includes the 2.5-6 kW and 6-10kW single-phase models for the residential market, the three phase inverter family for the commercial sector (25-40 kW and 50-66 kW), as well as the hybrid energy storage inverter (5-10 kW).
“As one of the first manufacturers to implement the SunSpec Modbus and Rapid Shutdown programs, our certification achievements speak to our commitment to the U.S. market,” said Susanna Huang, U.S general manager. “We appreciate the solar eco-system nurtured by SunSpec and support its effort in promoting industry collaboration.”
Solis residential, hybrid and commercial inverters seamlessly embed SunSpec RSD technology into its transmitters, helping contractors slash install time and cost. Solis has engineered a rapid shutdown transmitter into its wiring box, avoiding costly connections to external enclosures. The integrated transmitter sends independent signals to each string, ensuring efficient rapid shutdown. This plug-and-play solution means no extra wiring and no extra time.
In addition to installation efficiencies, the Solis MLRS feature is technology agnostic and can be paired with any SunSpec-certified receiver.
“This is an exciting milestone for Solis” says Travis Snyder, Solis USA product manager. “Our customers already trust Solis for its high conversion efficiency and third-party validated reliability. Now they can deploy SunSpec-certified Solis with confidence across all of the U.S. markets that mandate rapid-shutdown safety measures.”
