SolarBridge Technologies has revealed that its Pantheon microinverter has passed all necessary tests and has been granted the safety standard for PV inverters: UL 1741 certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The company claims that this is the first integrated microinverter that comes with a 25-year warranty to receive such certification.
The Pantheon microinverter was put through different testing before it was granted UL certification including a utility-interface requirement under IEEE 1547, environmental evaluations under UL 1703, temperature cycling, humidity cycling and wet insulation resistance testing. Additionally, the AC connectors underwent mechanical testing, which took into account the impact of the system at -35 degrees Celsius.
“These are great milestones for our technology and our company,” said Ron Van Dell, president and CEO for SolarBridge. “These certifications mean that our AC Module System has passed all the necessary industry safety tests—qualifying the SolarBridge Pantheon as a power electronics component for any AC module built for North America.”
