Latronics PV Edge solar inverters use a unique solar panel setup known as parallel string configuration.

This design is especially good for small groups of solar panels in different orientations, or sunlight conditions, and operates at a lower, safer solar panel array voltage, while having the advantages of reliability, flexibility and superior energy yield for the complete solar system.

Features of Latronics PV Edge Inverters

The Latronics PV Edge Series Inverter utilizes the most advanced microprocessor algorithms which guarantees that your power conversion is pure and stable.

Energy Meter – Digital Energy meter enables accurate display of instantanious and total generated power.

Wall mount design – Allows flexibility and ease of installation.

Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) – The solar array is held at the optimum voltage and continually monitored to achieve maximum power output under any conditions.

Reliability – Over 25 years of experience and continuous adherence to stringent quality standards ensures optimum reliability backed with a full 5year parts and labour warranty.

Full Electronic Protection – Sophisticated circuitry provides protection against overload, AC over/under voltage, AC frequency errors, DC over/under voltage, over temperature and anti-islanding via active phase shift.

Frequency 50/60 hz selectable – Fully selectable between 50/60Hz via a set of internal dip switches.

Night Time Disconnect – Automatic disconnection at night and reconnection in the morning ensures zero power wastage.

Versatile – Suitable for use with Solar Modules, Wind Generators, Micro Hydro and other Renewable Sources.

Parallel Operation – Ability to parallel units provides easy system expansion.

Durable Construction – Latronics Grid Connect Inverters are made to the highest quality to provide years ofreliable operation.

Corrosion Conscious Design – Latronics Inverters are built for extreme environments using a recyclable powdercoated aluminium casing, a more noble metal than steel.

High Efficiency – The latest low loss switching technology combined with a high efficiency toroidal transformer maximizes the PV Edge output even under conditions of minimal solar radiation.

Isolation – Galvanic isolation within the PV Edge provides optimal protection for your system and your household.

LED Status Indicators – A full set of LED’s keeps the user informed of its operation at all times.
