PORTLAND, USA: Azuray Technologies, an emerging leader in solar power optimization electronics, announced that its AP300 power optimizer smart junction-box received certification for both Europe and North America from TÜV Rheinland, a leading certification agency.
This TÜV certification of the AP300 highlights the high quality components and design to meet temperature ratings from -40 to +90 degrees C. The AP300 has been certified to meet the following standards: UL1703, UL1741, CSA 22.1 C107.1, VDE-0126-5, and IEC 62109.
“We are pleased that the AP300 is now a TÜV Rheinland certified product,” said Les Crudele, CEO of Azuray Technologies. “Meeting these rigorous standards reinforces our unparalleled commitment to reliability and quality in the solar power optimizer market.”
As a collaboration between Azuray Technologies and Renhe Photovoltaic Technology, the AP300 integrates Azuray’s robust and reliable maximum power point tracking (MPPT) power optimization technology into Renhe’s market leading PV junction boxes. The AP300 recoups up to 99.2 percent of energy that would otherwise be lost due to module mismatch or shading, thereby increasing a PV system’s total energy harvest by up to 25 percent.
When paired with the Azuray ACM300 communications gateway, the AP300 smart junction-box also provides solar module monitoring and safety features for installation and emergency situations.
