Fronius introduces the next generation of solar systems to the industry, the Fronius Smart Solution. This satisfies all needs for residential and commercial systems: flexible system design, shade mitigation, NEC compliance, high performance and state-of-the art monitoring while keeping the number of components low and installation easy.
As solar evolves and new technologies shape the way systems are designed and installed, new functionalities are added and systems become more advanced. Fronius believes that this should not come at the cost of simplicity, as is the case with traditional Module Level Power Electronics (MLPE). Now is time for this next generation.
"The Fronius Smart Solution combines the benefits of traditional MLPE such as microinverters or DC optimizers with the ease of installation and cost-effectiveness of string inverters", explains Wolfgang Niedrist, President & CEO of Fronius USA. "If you look at a typical residential system of 6.5 kW with traditional DC optimizers, you have to install 24 optimizers on the roof plus the inverter. All power electronics you need with the Fronius Smart Solution are just an inverter and a Fronius Rapid Shutdown Box.
"The Fronius Smart Solution is the combination of cell-string optimized modules, the Fronius Rapid Shutdown Box, a Fronius SnapINverter, the optional Fronius Smart Meter and the Fronius Solar.web online monitoring portal:
