AEG Power Solutions advised that TÜV Rheinland recently tested and certified its Protect PV.500 for UL 1741 product safety and standard certification. The inverter is said to be ideally suited for utility-scale PV applications holding an efficiency higher than 98%.
“It was important for us to not only test to UL 1741, but also to obtain full certification from a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory,” explained Juergen Schiele, solar research and development director at AEG PS. “We modified our field-proven product to incorporate UL components and space requirements and performed rigorous tests further demonstrating our commitment to safety and quality for the products we offer globally.”
“We can now address the U.S. market with a fully certified inverter. Our strategy is to compensate for solar market contractions in Europe by establishing ourselves in growth regions such as Eastern Europe, India, Africa and North America. That’s why we recently opened our facility in South Africa, and that’s also why this certification is another important step for our company,” explains Horst Kayser, CEO of AEG PS.
