1000V Solar Inverters Earn UL Certification
UL Certification paves the way for widespread
adoption of this proven, reliable and cost-
effective solution in the North American market.
Woodward's 1000V solar inverters reduce balance of system (BOS) installation costs by allowing connection of more modules per string, reducing the number of connection boxes and DC switches, lowering DC cable losses and simplifying the system design. With efficiencies up to 98.2% and a wide maximum power point tracking (MPPT) range, the inverters help improve energy yield while offering one of the smallest footprints on the market. - read more -
Innovative Power Electronics Systems
Woodward IDS, formerly known as Integral Drive Systems AG, is a leading provider of innovative power electronic systems, predominantly for utility- and commercial-scale photovoltaic power plants and wind turbines. Additionally, Woodward IDS offers power electronics solutions for power distribution, energy storage, and marine propulsion applications.
Compact, High-efficiency Inverter Technologies
The company’s SOLO series of solar inverters has been proven in hundreds of PV (photovoltaic) solar installations.
SOLO inverters are designed to maximize the power output from a solar array based on current switching, liquid cooling, and MPPT (maximum power point tracking) technologies.
SOLO inverters are available in output ratings of 100, 250, 500, and now 1000 kW using exclusive D-Booster technology (patent pending).
All models are available for indoor (IP54) or outdoor (IP55) installation.
Extended-temperature-range (from -25°C to +55°C) and high-altitude (up to 3500 metres) configurations are available.
SOLO inverters feature a local color touch screen interface that provides a configurable display of electric power production, built-in diagnostic functions, and data-logger readout of important data.
Strong Global Presence
Woodward IDS is a subsidiary of Woodward, Inc., a financially strong, global organization that has been providing innovative technology to the energy markets since 1870. With its outstanding reputation, global presence, and strong technology background, Woodward is an ideal partner for long-term business relationships.
