Enphase’s newest IQ8M Microinverter. The industry’s first microgrid-forming, software defined microinverters with split-phase power conversion capability to convert DC power to AC power efficiently. With IQ8 at the core, Enphase Energy Systems are flexible and scalable. IQ8 Series Microinverters integrate with the Enphase IQ Battery, Enphase IQ Gateway, and the Enphase App monitoring and analysis software.
Start with an IQ8 solar-only system and add Enphase batteries and an IQ Load Controller as energy needs grow for resiliency.
Connect PV modules quickly and easily to IQ8 Series Microinverters using the included Q-DCC-2 adapter cable with plug-n-play MC4 connectors.
The brain of the semiconductor-based microinverter is our proprietary application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) which enables the microinverter to operate in grid-tied or off-grid modes. This chip is built in advanced 55nm technology with high speed digital logic and has super-fast response times to changing loads and grid events, alleviating constraints on battery sizing for home energy systems.
Enphase Microinverters : No Single Point Of Failure
If a system with a central inverter fails, solar production stops completely. With one microinverter per module, solar production keeps working even if a microinverter fails.
IQ8 : A Bright Idea, Even In Low Light
IQ Microinverters use breakthrough Burst Mode™ technology to capture more energy in low-light conditions, such as when there are shadows or clouds passing over the solar array.
It Shines, Even When It Rains
IQ Microinverters are NEMA 6 certified and are recommended by FEMA, meaning they can endure just about anything Mother Nature sends their way.
IQ Microinverters are backed by an industry-leading 25-year limited warranty.
IQ Microinverters are inherently safer because they operate at the same low-voltage AC power as your home. Our systems never contain high-voltage DC power.
Responsive & Responsible
IQ Microinverters include built-in Rapid Shutdown so that, in the event of an emergency, your solar power can be turned off instantly and easily, keeping utility workers and first responders safe.
