« All press releases

Grenoble, June 15 – Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announces the launch of the ConextTM CL125 utility-scale string inverter.

  • An additional solution for utility scale
  • Digital and IoT ready: ability to control everything at your fingertips

ConextTM CL125 is the latest addition to Schneider Electric Solar’s portfolio of three-phase string inverters. The inverter offers design flexibility and fast commissioning when building 1500-volt PV systems with string inverters.


With CL125, customers can create flexible block sizes up to 5MW in centralized or decentralized architecture. “The flexibility in block size as well as the option to implement centralized or decentralized architecture is ideal for solar power plants with land constraints or uneven terrain,” says Evan Vogel, Vice President of Marketing, Schneider Electric Solar.

Wireless Bluetooth Connection & CL125 App

Along with the CL125 inverter, Schneider Electric also offers the ConextTM CL125 App, a Bluetooth network-based smart device app. With the wireless Bluetooth connection, customers can configure, monitor, and upgrade inverter firmware with an easy to use smartphone or tablet interface, saving time and money during commissioning.

Maximum return on investment

The CL125 string inverter provides 125kW power output up to 50°C, allowing greater power production even in the hottest climates. Combined with an industry-leading peak efficiency of 98.8% and wide MPPT range, the CL125 maximizes energy yield and return on investment.

Complete Solution

“As a global leader in energy management and a bankable partner, we support customers globally with our high-quality solutions. In addition to the CL125, Schneider Electric’s offers a broad range of complementary equipment such as transformers and switchgear to create a total solution. With ConextTM CL125 and Schneider Electric’s comprehensive offering, designing complete 1500-volt PV systems with string inverters has never been easier,” says Vogel.

The ConextTM CL125 is compatible with the full ranges of control and monitoring apps and services to provide end to end solutions with high quality energy for your Power Plant.
