PUNCH #1: New YC600 & QS1 Installation Video Series
Now available to professional installers: APsystems’ online video training series for the YC600 & QS1 microinverters. This new four-video series complements our existing ECU-R installation video training by covering the details on the microinverter installation, best practices, layout and cabling options and using the QS1 and YC600 on the same circuit. The new video series can be found on the training page of our website and on the APsystems YouTube channel. Runtime for the full video is around 25 minutes.
Together, the YC600 & QS1 video series and the ECU-R installation video series combine to make a potent “one-two punch” online video training regimen of the best methods and techniques for installing APsystems microinverter equipment. This series is not only ideal for new APsystems installers, but also for experienced installers looking to streamline their installation practices and reduce time and expense on the jobsite.
PUNCH #2: ECU-R Installation Video Series
A collection of 5 helpful videos, the ECU-R series covers the tools you need, an overview of ECU features, proper placement, connections, using the ECU APP to commission the system, inverter scanning, as well as final setup steps in the APsystems online EMA monitoring platform.
“The new video series covers the majority of the basics professional installers need to know on the ECU-R,” says Jason Higginson, Senior Director of Marketing. “These videos will allow them to move more quickly and easily through the setup process.”
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.
Have you seen our new QS1 cabling & connection video? This video provides information on QS1 inverter/PV module connection in different scenarios such as portrait vs. landscape, tandem use with the YC600, use with split cell/half-cut cell modules and when to use DC extension cables.
A complete 6.93kW solar installation in under 5 minutes? That’s right … thanks to the magic of video editing, and APystems microinverters!
Our friends at NextGen Energy have posted a great new video that compresses a whole 24-module rooftop project into an exciting short feature. And with their multi-module, plug-n-power design, APsystems YC500 microinverters helped the NextGen team get the job done fast.
Sure, it took a little longer than 5 minutes in real time … but the APsystems microinverter installation was fast and efficient. Less time on the job site means big savings for installers and customers alike … and that’s a wrap!
Microinverters are a popular choice for residential and commercial solar installations. They inherently meet NEC 2017 requirements for module-level shutdown, increase system efficiency and performance, and help with shading issues. Learn more about how microinverters convert DC to AC power right at the panel level in this video.
APsystems microinverters are unparalleled for speed and ease of installation.
The new online video training series from APsystems guides installers step by step through the fast, hassle-free installation and setup of the flagship YC500 microinverter.
