BURNABY, British Columbia, July 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Schneider Electric will present solar solutions in Booth 7510 at one of the largest solar trade shows in California, Intersolar North America, taking place from July 12-14 in San Francisco.

The Renewable Energies Business of Schneider Electric is focused on designing and developing photovoltaic products and solutions, as well as providing global customer service and technical support. Schneider Electric provides the full, cost-effective solution from the panel DC output to the grid connection, including monitoring and supervision.

In addition, Global Product Line Manager Andrew Riegler will speak at the Intersolar North America conference session on Series Balance of Systems - Tracking of PV Strings: Toward Optimal Harvest Efficiency and Maximum ROI, on July 13 from 12:10 - 12:35 at the InterContinental Hotel, Level 3.

Products on display will include:

Schneider Electric(TM) Xantrex(TM) XC Series

Available for shipment in early 2012, the XC Series is a new line of central inverters designed for high efficiency and flexibility for any PV panel type and installation. The XC series has peak efficiencies of 98.7%, and its flexibility allows the inverter to be configured with voltage and power outputs up to 680 kVA. In addition, the XC series is designed to allow for DC inputs up to 1000 Vdc for longer string lengths.

Schneider Electric Conext(TM) Series Grid Tie Solar Inverters

The new line of single- and small three-phase Conext Series Grid Tie Solar Inverters features models ranging from 1.5 to 20 kW. Conext inverters are designed to offer maximum power point tracking (MPPT) that ensures increased energy harvest in shaded installations using Schneider Electric's FastSweep(TM) technology.

Schneider Electric Xantrex XW MPPT 80 600 Solar Charge Controller
The XW MPPT 80 is an innovative solar charge controller that accepts PV array voltages up to 600VDC, significantly simplifying system installation and reducing size and cost for array wiring and associated hardware. The Xantrex XW MPPT 80 600 tracks the maximum power point of a PV array to efficiently deliver up to 80 A of charge current to storage batteries in 24 V or 48 V systems.

Schneider Electric Xantrex GT30 Grid-Tie Solar Inverter

This three-phase, bi-polar inverter delivers 120/208 Vac out of the box and can be used as a building block for larger systems. The Xantrex GT30, weighing in at only 165 lbs (75 kg), is a 30 kW high-performance inverter that makes utility-interactive installations easier and more cost effective. It features a transformerless design, superior PV energy harvest, easy installation, and an ultra-lightweight package.

Schneider Electric PV Box

The Schneider Electric PV Box is a pre-wired equipment package specifically designed to meet the growing demand of a large-scale grid-tied solar farms and large commercial installations in any region of the world, even in the harshest environments. The PV Box is a complete solution, including power conversion, electrical distribution, control, monitoring, and communication, all from one vendor.
