Description

This is the APsmart RSD-S-PLC rapid shutdown receiver by APSystems. A simple, affordable way to meet Canadian Electrical Code requirements for module-level solar array shutdown. Works seamlessly with any SunSpec certified AC solar string inverter such as SMA or Fronius.

How Does The APSmart System Work?

Snap an APSmart unit to the back of each module in your array (frame clip is included) and plug the modules into AC strings as normal. Your SunSpec compliant solar string inverter sends an ‘active’ signal up to the roof via the DC power lines. If/when there is a utility outage, the inverter will disconnect from the grid as required and will stop sending this signal. The rooftop power lines are thereby fully de-energized.

APSmart RSD-S-PLC Compatibility

The APSmart units are compatible with any SunSpec certified inverter system, including, but not limited to…
SMA SunnyBoy-41
SMA Core1-41
Fronius Symo Advanced
These inverters feature an integrated SunSpec RSD-transmitter. No other gateways, wiring, or boxes are required.
If you do not have a SunSpec enabled inverter, you can purchase the APSmart RSD transmitter unit separately.

SAFE
Meets Canadian CEC 2018 64-218 requirements
Meets US NEC 2017 & 2020 (690.12) requirements
SunSpec Rapid Shutdown certified
cCSAus certified

RELIABLE
RSD ASIC Chip designed using APsystems’ IP with redundancy topology
Highly integrated SoC System on a chip design for lowest component count.
No DC:DC power conversion for the solar power. Therefore extremely low failure rates when compared to optimizer based systems.

FLEXIBLE
Small and light, direct solar module frame mounted with integrated clips

POWERFUL
Longer daily module operating period (15 ~ 30 minutes) due to its low minimum operation voltage (8V)
Does not interfere with global MPP tracking algorithms and shade mitigation algorithms e.g. SMA ShadeFix
Very Low power consumption
