New SolarMax MT inverter available

Sputnik Engineering AG will participate for the second time at the SE European Exhibition on Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy

The new SolarMax 8MT2 string inverter specifically developed for smaller PV plants is available now.

Biel, August 2012: The Swiss inverter manufacturer Sputnik Engineering complements its successful SolarMax MT series by adding the new 8MT2 string inverter with an output power of 8kW. The three-phase inverter is particularly suitable for flexible use in the field for detached houses and multiple dwellings.

This way, the SolarMax MT series now offers a comprehensive portfolio that can be used to perfectly implement both small domestic plants and decentralised large-scale plants. The MT range now comprises four MT2 models (8, 10, 13, and 15kW output) with two MPP trackers in each case; the two MT3 inverters (13 and 15kW) with three MPP trackers in each case complete the MT family.

For private domestic plants, the module strings must often be distributed in an asymmetrical manner due to multiple orientation roofs. This normally results in one large and one or several small module fields. Quite often, module areas are also partially shadowed by roof architecture or antennae. The new 8MT2 stands out from the other inverters of the MT series due to the fact that its two trackers are designed asymmetrically. This way, for example, the tracker with the higher input current can be connected to a large solar generator with uniformly oriented modules thus optimising the main yield of the plant. For this, there are two string connections. The second tracker with only one string connection is used for smaller module fields and/or module fields that are partially shaded or orientated differently, for example.

"At the beginning of 2012 we already presented three MT2 inverter models first and foremost standing the test for decentralised commercial and industrial large-scale plants with homogeneous solar generator," says Olaf Geistlinger, senior Product Manager for the SolarMax string inverters. "However, since private PV plants normally must meet different requirements, the new 8MT2 offers the tried and tested performance of the MT series paired with high levels of flexibility, as required by the design of plants on detached houses and multiple dwellings."

The light and compact design, as well as the easily accessible connections allow for quick and simple installation. With high efficiencies of up to 98%, the MT series stands for the highest Swiss Quality and is based on more than 20 years of experience in the fields of inverter development and manufacture.

The SolarMax MT inverters meet all currently applicable standards and grid connection directives and, thus, are suitable for use in numerous European and non-European countries.

About SolarMax

Sputnik Engineering AG, a Swiss company, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of grid-connected solar inverters. Under the name SolarMax the company develops, produces and sells inverters for every system – from photovoltaic plants on single-family homes whose kilowatt output is modest, to the solar power plants whose output is measured in megawatts. The inverter is a key component of the solar plant, transforming the generated direct current into grid-compliant alternating current. 20 years of experience are not only reflected in the Swiss quality, highest efficiency, reliability, and durability of the SolarMax products, but also in the way Sputnik offers its customers excellent international support in the field of after sales, comprehensive warranty services, and intelligent solutions for system monitoring.

SolarMax is positioned internationally and currently has approx. 360 employees. The company headquarters are located in Switzerland (Biel), products are sold and distributed via the branches in Germany, Spain, Italy, France, China, Belgium, Great Britain, Greece, Bulgaria and Australia.
