The Latronics Solution

latronics back up inverter set up

Latronics has a unique system, well-used in many grid-back-up installations whereby the grid inverter operates on low voltage dc, allowing the simple installation of 48v or 96v battery bank, and a stand-by inverter that automatically takes over to power the load, if the grid fails.

As the batteries can always accept charge from the solar panels, the house load has the benefit of automatically using the solar-generated power, even during times of a power black-out.

An additional advantage of this system is that dc wind generators or water turbines can be added to the grid-feed electricity system.

Solazone usually supplies the Latronics back-up inverters with automatic change-over switches included, so there is seamless transfer of power, and simplified ac wiring that is not confusing.  The diagram above shows a basic outline of this type of system.
