IQ7 Micro Inverters
Solar panels may be on top, but it's the inverter that does all the real work. Choosing an inverter technology is the most critical decision you'll make when going solar. Enphase Microinverters offer the most advanced inverter technology on the market, which means higher production, greater reliability, and unmatched intelligence.
The Enphase advantage
At Enphase, we strive to provide you with the best solar experience to maximize the performance of your system and the value of your long-term investment. Performance, reliability and safety are most important. At the same time, the Enphase intelligent technology offers you the flexibility to monitor your production and usage today, and handle whatever the future might bring — from home expansions to smart home and smart grid or off-grid integration. Enphase is a name you can trust now and for years to come.
Maximum performance and reliability
Independent studies by PV Evolution Labs have shown that Enphase Microinverters produce between 1 - 3.1% more energy than string inverters or string with DC optimisers in unshaded conditions and much more under partial shade which translates into real savings for you. With string inverters, if one panel is soiled, shaded or degrades faster over time than other panels, the whole system drops output performance to the lowest-performing panel. Enphase microinverters operate independently, ensuring that your overall system performs to its maximum capability. So one shaded or dirty panel won’t affect the rest of the system. Plus, burst technology lets microinverters produce more at dawn, dusk, and in low-light conditions, for a longer solar day.
Enphase Microinverters are extremely low in voltage - always operating <80V. So with an Enphase system, there is next to no risk of any electrical shocks or arc faults that can start a fire. And if there is a fire in your home, “rapid shutdown” is a built-in feature. When the AC utility source is removed in any way – through an AC breaker, AC disconnect, or removal of the main meter, for example – the microinverter shuts down automatically. This protects firefighters attempting to put out the flames by removing the voltage and current from the system. With string inverters, solar panels are wired together with high voltage DC throughout the system. A DC system cannot easily be turned off (without costly, add-on electrical work, electrical boxes, switches or conduit) and therefore poses a greater risk to firefighters. Plus, DC systems can easily reach more than 10 times the voltage of an Enphase system — 600V and more are not uncommon. Special switches like DC isolators are hence required on your roof, which add to the inherent risk of arc faults and electrical shocks.
Robust, per-panel monitoring
Our Enlighten Mobile App makes it easy to monitor the performance of each and every solar panel on your roof - right from your smartphone, everywhere you go. You can track your energy production, monitor your system’s health, and share your data with family and friends - all from a simple, easy-to-use interface.
