Microinverter expert APS is now shipping its new 3-phase YC1000 inverter, which can handle 277/480 grid voltages and up to four PV modules per unit. Up to eleven units can then be linked in a single 15 A circuit.

The maximum output of one YC1000 lies at 900 W and additionally it has integrated ground and features wireless communication via ZigBee. Thereby, the microinverter can be integrated with the APS Monitor to provide real-time data or the APS Communicator for comprehensive performance data, which are accessible via any device with online capability. According to the manufacturer, the YC1000’s price is competitive with that of conventional string inverters.

“With native 3-phase capability in a microinverter package, large-scale commercial customers now have a significantly better solution for distributed rooftop solar,” Paul Barlock, the Senior Vice President at APS America, said.

APS will showcase the YC1000 at booth number 3124 at the Solar Power International conference.
