PVP260kW & PVP260kW-LV

The industry standard for reliability, installability and maintainability

PVP 260kw Commercial Inverter The PVP260kW raises the bar once again for commercial inverter reliability, ease of installation and lifetime maintainability, while delivering best-in-class 97.0% CEC efficiency. High reliability is enabled by market-leading features including busbar power connections, redundant cooling system, card cage circuit board design and the widest temperature rating of any inverter in its class. The highly integrated system saves installers time and money by including loadrated AC & DC service disconnects, neutral-free installation, oversized busbar landings and generous cable bending area for top, bottom and side cable entry options.

The PVP260kW has a standard 295VDC minimum MPPT and an optional full power 265VDC minimum MPPT- the lowest MPPT voltage of any commercial inverter in the industry. This low input voltage option enables exceptional stringing capability with all PV module technologies including new thin film modules. The PVP260kW also simplifies performance monitoring by offering inverter-integrated solutions from market leaders Fat Spaniel, Draker and Energy Recommerce. Additional options from PV Powered include integrated revenue grade meter and subcombiner monitoring.

PV Powered backs all its commercial inverters with an industry-leading 10-year nationwide warranty and an unprecedented optional 20-year warranty; plus the best service and support team in the business.
