Aten Solar has signed a distribution agreement with Azuray Technologies for its AP250 Power Optimizer. The contract allows Aten to sell the A250 throughout North America and help it meet increased demand for power maximising solutions within the retrofit market.
The AP250 utilises maximum power point tracking (MPPT) to increase solar energy harvests by up to 25% for solar arrays affected by shade, mismatch and soiling. It is also compatible with the majority of inverters and crystalline modules, and can handle voltages up to 300W.
“As a power optimizer, the AP250 is unique to the industry. It functions without the requirement of communications monitoring equipment,” Aten founder Yousri Abdou said. “We are so pleased to offer the AP250 to our customers. It is perfect for the retrofit market and helps keep balance of system (BOS) costs within budget.”
“We are excited to be working with Aten,” added Gil Miller, vice president of business development at Azuray. “With the AP250, Aten Solar can meet the increased demands of its customers for a power optimizer solution that reliably and efficiently increases solar energy harvest from underperforming modules.”
