ABB has launched the PVS-100/120 range of cloud-connected, three-phase string inverter solutions for decentralised photovoltaic (PV) systems. Suitable for both large-scale commercial and industrial ground-mounted and rooftop applications, the PVS-100/120 offers a six-in-one, sun-to-socket solution, proven to deliver scalability, flexibility, proactive plant management and ease of installation.
According to ABB, the new range of PVS-100/120 solar inverters leads to a 50 per cent reduction in installation and logistics costs as fewer inverters are required to complete the optimal power block. Its installation is controlled and managed via the Installation Wizard, installer app and wireless access, thereby reducing the installation time and improving the overall user experience. The smart product design features include secure access via a cover key, PV quick connectors and configuration via Wi-Fi to eliminate the risk of water ingress and further reduce the installation time for cabling, fuse and SPD checks.
The inverter solutions can be adapted for any application in large commercial rooftops and free field ground-mounted installations. The solutions feature proactive control and management of the solar plant through ABB Ability™ with remote monitoring capabilities, parameter setting and firmware updates to improve reliability and operational cost efficiencies with reduced plant complexity. The addition of ABB Ability™ further enables the delivery of monitoring upgrades and top-flight asset management to protect customers’ investment over the total life of the plant through scalability. Full Sunspec compatibility further guarantees effortless integration with third-party systems such as data-loggers and/or SCADA systems.
