SolarEdge Unveils New S1400 Power Optimizer for high-input, bifacial, and high-power 700W modules, including G12 modules at RE+ 2023
May 31, 2023 – At this year’s RE+, taking place at the Venetian Conference and Expo Center, Las Vegas, 11-14 September, SolarEdge Technologies, a global leader in smart energy technology, will unveil its new S1400 Power Optimizer for the Commercial and Industrial (C&I) segment.
The new 2:1 S1400 Power Optimizer is an ideal solution for high-input, bifacial and high-power 700W modules, including G12 modules. Based on patented technology and engineered to support the growing use of these modules, the S1400’s new architecture delivers increased power density from a smaller unit while ensuring optimum thermal performance. The increased output current allows the PV system to be designed with fewer, yet more powerful strings, resulting in a typical ~30% reduction in DC BoS costs. Boasting a small and lightweight design, the S1400 provides greater design flexibility in challenging spaces and ease of installation.
- The new S1400 Power Optimizer includes SolarEdge’s multi-layered suite of safety features: SolarEdge’s Sense Connect industry-first technology that detects thermal abnormalities at the connector level and stops power flow before a potential electric arc can occur.
- The SafeDCTM feature allows the PV systems’ DC voltage to be automatically reduced to touch-safe levels (1V DC per module), in grid failures or when the inverter is shut down.
- The Rapid Shutdown feature enable installers to activate SafeDCTM at the flip of a switch, discharging the conductors to safe voltage levels within just 30 seconds.
