Schneider Electric Solar Announces Launch of MPPT 100 Solar Charge Controller

IMO is pleased to announce the latest UL PVRSS list of the FireRaptor for the SMA Sunny Boy series of solar inverters from 3.0 kW to 7.7 kW and for the SMA TRIPOWER series of solar inverters from 33 kW to 62 kW in accordance with UL1741 To announce guidelines.

IMO is pleased to announce the latest UL PVRSS list of the FireRaptor for the SMA Sunny Boy series of solar inverters from 3.0 kW to 7.7 kW and for the SMA TRIPOWER series of solar inverters from 33 kW to 62 kW in accordance with UL1741 To announce guidelines.

The FireRaptor also meets the new AFCI compatibility requirements of UL according to the PVRSS listing with the inverter series SMA Sunny Boy and TRIPOWER, which further complement the current UL-listed FireRaptor range from IMO for compliance with NEC 2017 and NEC 2020.

Joe Covington, General Manager of IMO Automation in Cumming, GA, said, “We are delighted with the latest UL listing for the FireRaptor with SMA Sunny Boy and TRIPOWER inverters. Our ongoing efforts to get UL PVRSS listing with inverter manufacturers achieve more system security and at the same time enable further growth of the industry in view of the advancing regulatory requirements of the NEC. ”

The FireRaptor is designed for installation at solar module level and offers a safe shutdown of the DC power supply to ZERO volts in an emergency. Shutdown is initiated in three ways: manual operation via an emergency stop button (which can be conveniently located at floor level for easy access), interruption of the AC power supply, or a temperature rise trigger.

The FireRaptor works like a circuit breaker, making the FireRaptor compatible with all string inverters and not affecting their operation or performance in any way. In addition, the FireRaptor was developed for fail-safe operation to ensure that subsequent damage to the FireRaptor (e.g. due to fire) does not affect the insulation and the shutdown status of the solar module. In fact, the FireRaptor has been tested for destruction by TÜV in Germany, with full zero-volt isolation being maintained throughout the testing process.
