The YC500A Dual Module Micro Inverter by APSystems is a grid-tied microinverter with intelligent networking and monitoring systems to ensure maximum efficiency. Highly dependable and cost effective, the YC500A can accommodate PV modules up to 365W with dual MPPT but is ideally suited for modules from 280 to 310W. Half the inverters and half the installation means real cost savings.
Who Is APSystems?
APsystems is a fast-growing brand of micro-inverters, currently no.2 worldwide! Their micro-inverters have gained a reputation as extremely reliable, and because no expensive trunk cable is needed with this YC500A model, the overall system cost is lower than with other micro-inverter brands. Monitoring, with APs’ gateway, is provided through Web or smartphone.
What’s The Attraction?
The YC500A micro-inverter handles two PV modules simultaneously with dual MPPT inputs. Simply click the panel wires into the unit, and extend the built-in trunk cable to the next micro-inverter. Up to 14 solar modules (7x YC500s) can be installed in a string with a single 20A breaker.
Because the units provide module-level ground-fault protection, rapid shutdown requirements are built-in. This makes installations faster, cheaper, and much better looking!
