The modules feature a back contact technology and the residential version is compatible with SolarEdge’s HD-Wave inverters, StorEdge solution and Inverter-Integrated EV chargers. The module-level monitoring can be easily connected through hard-wired internet or a cellular network. The solution complies with the latest safety standards, such as NEC 2017 and smart-inverter protocols.
