Offering 300 VA peak output power per channel, the YC600 works with 60- and 72-cell PV modules and offers dual, independent MPPT per panel – setting a powerful new standard for microinverter technology.
Also in the Buyers Guide: The APsystems EMA App, offering comprehensive, real-time system monitoring through your handheld device. “APsystems provides complimentary module-level monitoring through its cloud-based EMA service for both homeowners and installers,” Solar Builder writes. “With the EMA app, users can see the energy their system is producing at the panel level, so if the app shows that a particular PV module is underperforming, the owner knows to check for shading issues, debris and damage.”
