APsystems to showcase QS1 and APsmart Rapid Shutdown Device at Intersolar 2020

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.
