1500V PV Inverter

Posted on: | Posted in: Product Updates.

Far more than a new inverter, the Conext SmartGen™  is the new paradigm for large-scale renewable power installations. The SmartGen sits at the convergence of power and communication technologies by leveraging cloud connectivity and the Internet of Things to maximize the value of solar investments.

Built-in sensors and intelligence, and connectivity to the entire plant and to the Cloud open new opportunities for optimized performance. It records and stores its own operation and service history, has self-diagnostic capabilities and can send proactive service warnings and reports to the cloud.

The SmartGen communicates with a suite of supporting software applications in the Power EcoSystem™, including the Conext™ Advisor 2 to provide remote control, visibility, and analytics for owners, operators and service staff.  The Power EcoSystem™ utilizes Schneider Electric EcoStruxure architecture, powered by Microsoft Azure using the Azure IoT Suite.

The Conext SmartGen’s intelligence and cloud connectivity result in optimal power generation and faster, better-informed decision making for a secure solar investment.

See the SmartGen at Renewable Energy India Expo on September 7-9 at booth #3.85 Hall 3, and at Solar Power International (SPI) on September 12-15 at booth 2533.
