The first of its kind, the QS1 is designed to accommodate today’s high output PV panels up to 375W, offering 300W AC output per channel, the highest among microinverters. The QS1 offers up to 3X faster data transmission speed than PLC and a wider MPPT voltage range means a greater energy harvest for homeowners. The unit significantly reduces installation time and costs, taking the place of four conventional microinverters per each QS1 installed while providing independent MPPT for each module.
The QS1 shares common AC trunk cabling with APsystems’ popular dual-module YC600 microinverter, offering flexible mix-and-match compatibility on the same circuit to enhance site design capability and maximize circuit capacity.
The QS1 builds on the successful APsystems line of multi-module microinverters, simplifying installation while reducing installation costs and time on the job site. See the QS1 at booth No. 208.

Solar Power Northeast is designed to serve and advance the PV solar market, by bringing together PV industry leaders, professionals, manufacturers, and service providers to explore business solutions, new technologies, policy initiatives, and other market factors.
APsystems will be bringing its microinverters to Intersolar once again, and sharing booth space with its sister business, APsmart. The APsmart team will be showcasing their innovative new Rapid Shutdown Device (RSD) and transmitter.
On display for APsystems will be the YC600, the world’s most advanced dual-module microinverter, Rule 21 certified for California and providing up to 300W per channel. Also on display is the QS1, a four-module, single-phase microinverter for residential applications offering a the highest peak output power at 1200W (300 per channel), 300% faster installation time, YC600 compatibility and up to 3X faster data transmission speeds than conventional microinverters. A wider MPPT voltage range also means a greater energy harvest for homeowners.
The APsmart team will be showing off the RSD System, a SunSpec Alliance-certified [paired] device which maintains constant communication between the RSD and Transmitter, constantly monitoring voltage and current. When proper voltage is not detected the Transmitter stops sending the keep-alive signal to the RSD-S-PLC device, initiating a module-level rapid shutdown sequence.
From the developers at APsystems, APsmart offers state-of-the-art PV module rapid shutdown devices (RSD), ideal for any new or existing string or central inverter system, and meeting U.S. NEC 2017 690.12 Rapid Shutdown requirements. Leveraging APsystems’ proven expertise in module-level power electronics, APsmart solutions are powered by ASIC with internal IP and integrated with TI chips at the system-level application.
Stop by booth #835 at Intersolar in San Diego, CA February 4-6 to see these innovative products and meet the APsystems and APsmart teams.
Wishing you a bright holiday season and a radiant New Year.
It’s been another great year for APsystems and we have you, our solar partners, to thank for it. You’ve put our advanced microinverter technology to work for customers in markets across the country.
Now it’s time once again to look back on the great solar successes of the past year and share your very best stories with the industry and the world.
Tell us about your very best project – what set it apart in terms of scale, design, power output, challenging conditions, or your creative application of APsystems microinverter technology.
We’d like you to submit the project details here, including a brief write-up about your best installation, or more – enter all the projects you like. Remember to include some high-res photographs and any close-ups showing our microinverters in action. Your project can be completed or still in process. Entries will be judged by our APsystems team.
We’ll be honoring top North America projects in both Residential and Commercial categories.
And we’ll announce the APsystems Solar Project of the Year Award winners early in the new year through announcements and promotions that will highlight your project and your company. APsystems is committed to helping you grow your solar business even as we grow ours, so this is a cross-promotion opportunity you’ll definitely want to take advantage of.
The winner in each category will receive $500.
Our contest last year generated great interest from installers and brought out some fantastic projects; you can see the winners here.
Now we’re excited to present this competition, highlighting the very best APsystems microinverter installations of 2019.
Submit your project entries here by January 10th 2020. Please read the terms and conditions before entering.
If you have any questions, please contact our marketing coordinator.
Thank you for partnership and support, and for a great 2019 for our company and yours.

Did you miss APsystems at this year’s SPI? You’re in luck! Solar Power World did the rounds for you. APsystems senior director of marketing Jason Higginson details what was showcased at this SPI 2019 in Salt Lake City.
Thank you for joining APsystems at Solar Power International. Our team thoroughly enjoyed our time and conversations with so many fellow solar professionals. We continue to see the tremendous interest in our YC600 and QS1 products as well as using them together on the same circuit. We’ve also heard your feedback looking for helpful tips and best practices on setting up the ECU-R.
Here are some useful tools to make your APsystems experience a game changer. Our QS1 Cabling video provides helpful scenarios for panel types and layouts as well as utilizing it in the same circuit as the YC600. The ECU-R video is a 5-part series covering the entire set up and commissioning process as well as next steps in the EMA.
APsystems offers advanced, powerful solar microinverter technology for residential and commercial systems. The APsystems solar solution combines highly efficient power inversion with a user-friendly monitoring interface to bring you reliable, intelligent energy.
