Competitive pressure is mounting in generation of renewable energy. This requires solutions that contribute to decreased downtimes and increased cost efficiency. PV Smart, the new generation of high-performance combiner boxes from Weidmüller, is designed specifically to meet these requirements.

The profitability of photovoltaic systems can only be increased by consistent cost management as well as through high quality and reliability of all components used. The intelligent design of the PV Smart combiner boxes contributes to this by offering added value throughout the entire useful life.

As the solutions are delivered ready for connection and have passed all required tests, commissioning is particularly easy. Only wiring is required for installation. Push-in connections reduce the installation time by half. The highly space-saving design makes the combiner boxes the right choice for a wide range of PV projects.

In operation, the PV Smart boxes score with their maintenance-free operation, even under extreme temperature fluctuations. “Significantly decreased operating costs and consistently high performance lead to improved profitability of the PV systems,” emphasises Weidmüller Product Manager Juan Francisco Martínez. “The intelligent functions of the PV Smart combiner boxes equip EPC and O&M companies for future market trends.” Detailed requirements of customers were also taken into consideration during development. An example of this is the user-friendly removal of fuses.

The combiner boxes are developed and manufactured in accordance with IEC 61439-2 and are available for 1,000 V and 1,500 V applications. Weidmüller’s stringent laboratory tests ensure that the boxes have a long service life under all operating conditions. Monitoring each individual PV string provides additional assurance for ongoing operation.
