Awards for the Primo GEN24 Plus and Symo Advanced from Fronius
Products make an impression on both sides of the Atlantic
new Fronius hybrid inverter Primo GEN24 Plus impressed the expert jury for the
prestigious German Plus X Award and was heralded as “product of the year” in
four categories. The system took prime position on the podium in the categories
of High Quality, Ease of Use, Functionality and Ecology. With features such as the various need-based emergency power
variants and ease of use, this system forms the basis for the ideal photovoltaic
(PV) solution that leaves nothing to be desired. Fronius picked up another
award in the USA: Here, the PV Evolutions Lab voted the Symo Advanced inverter
as the “Top Performer 2019”.
“Like the RedDot and IF Design Award, the Plus X Award is one of the
most well-known international design and innovation awards that recognises
manufacturers of products with superior quality,”
said Martin Hackl, Global Director Solar Energy at Fronius International GmbH. “The
fact that our Primo GEN24 Plus has achieved the accolade of “product of the
year” shows that, with this hybrid inverter, we now have another premium
product in our portfolio.”
The Primo GEN24 Plus is the all-in-one solution with an integrated
energy management system and an integrated basic emergency power supply. From
2020, the equipment will be available as a single-phase version (Primo GEN24
Plus) and a three-phase version (Symo GEN24 Plus) and ideal for worldwide use.
They provide all the benefits of the SnapINverter and boast additional features,
such as being incredibly quick to commission using an app and offering the
fastest service plan on the market. The Primo GEN24 impressed the jury in four
of the seven Plus X Award categories: High Quality, Ease of Use, Functionality
and Ecology. The jury of specialist editors, designers and industry experts
voted it product of the year. “With the
GEN24, we provide both installers and end customers with a complete energy
ecosystem. This enables them to develop and advance the energy revolution
according to their own individual requirements, thus also enabling them to
remain cost effective and profitable,” explained Martin Hackl.
“Our processing of high quality components, stability tests and
experience are what make Fronius a quality leader. The same goes for the Primo
GEN24 Plus inverters”, as evidenced by the awards.
Some of the other advantages noted by the jury included its ease of
installation, commissioning and servicing, the SuperFlex Design, system
monitoring via mobile terminal devices and the option of connecting a number of
inverters simultaneously. “This success
is all credit to the great cooperation with our installers. Our partners
regularly provide us with valuable feedback, which we incorporate in the
development of products,” stated Martin Hackl.
Award in the USA
Accolades for Fronius did not just come from Europe; the company
also picked up an award on the other side of the pond: The PV Evolutions Lab
(PVEL), one of the world’s leading independent test laboratories for the PV
industry in Berkeley, California, declared the PV inverter Symo Advanced as
“Top Performer 2019” in three categories. The inverter performed particularly
well when operating at high temperatures, and in terms of its response time and
arc recognition. The Symo Advanced is currently available in the USA.
