FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- High-efficiency SOLO series solar inverters, proven in hundreds of photovoltaic solar installations in Europe, are being unveiled by Woodward IDS for the first time in the United States at the Intersolar North America exhibition and conference in San Francisco, July 12-14.

Woodward IDS' line of SOLO inverters are designed to maximize the power output from a solar array based on advanced current switching, liquid cooling, and maximum-power-point tracker (MPPT) technologies. SOLO inverters are available in output ratings of 100 kW, 250 kW, 500 kW, and now 1000 kW using the company's exclusive D-Booster technology. All models are available for indoor (IP54) or outdoor (IP55) installation.

All components and control algorithms have proven high efficiency, reliability, and stability under demanding conditions. Extended temperature range (from -25 degrees C to +55 degrees C) and high-altitude (up to 3500 m above sea level) 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 a data-logger readout of important data. Internet access and 24-hour monitoring of SOLO inverter operation is also available.

The SOLO inverters will be presented at the Woodward IDS (Integral Drive Systems) booth, number 7041, at the Intersolar event at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, July 12-14.
