Description

Triple efficiency peaks

The Fronius IG Plus 5.0-1 use an automatic transformer switching function that enables three equal efficiency peaks yielding a higher efficiency over a wide input voltage range.

With a 96.2% maximum efficiency, the Fronius IG Plus 5.0-1 scores the highest grade among HF devices.

MIX™ Concept

With combination of multiple power stages in each inverter you are able to get the most power out of partial source such as shade or cloudy days.

Module Manager™.

Keeping the inverter at the maximum power point  (MPP) is crucial for efficient operation and energy harvest. With quick and precise MPP tracking you are assured to get the most power from your system.

Smart Ventilation Design.

There are a lot of environmentally hazards that can cause damage to an inverter. The smart ventilation design for IG Plus 5.0-1 allow s the inverter to cool without exposing the sensitive internal circuits from damaging environment conditions, e.g. humidity.


  • Grounding selectable on site. Decide on site what type of grounding is required as the Fronius IG Plus is field programmable for either positive or negative module grounding.

  • Designed for indoor and outdoor installations. All Fronius IG Plus inverters have a robust, well designed aluminum housing. UV resistance and corrosion protection enable them to be used either indoors or outdoors. Fronius is proud to be one of the only inverters tested and approved to operate at 122 degrees F.

  • Integrated DC disconnect. No external DC disconnect installation or cabling is necessary. The Fronius IG Plus comes complete with an approved, built-in, lockable and load breakable DC Disconnect.

  • The new power plug system. The connection area and power stages are installed separately from each other. Very easy and extremely safe: The connection area is attached to the wall as normal. Then the power module is simply plugged in. The power plug connects both parts into one secure unit. If service is required, the connector remains on the wall maintaining all settings and configurations. 

  • Field Programmable AC output voltage.The Fronius IG Plus inverter line from 3.0 to 11.4 kW is field programmable to 208, 240 or 277 volts (Fronius IG Plus 12.0 kW only available in 277 volts), eliminating the need to install different inverter models to accommodate three-phase installations.

About Fronius

Key Points

  • Extensive product line, accommodating a wide range of applications.
  • A trusted name in the renewable energy field.
  • High frequency/phase shift architecture maximizes efficiency while reducing weight.

Headquartered in Pettenbach, Austria, Fronius has been a key manufacturer of photovoltaic electronics since 1992, particularly in the engineering and manufacturing of photovoltaic inverters for both grid-connected and independent power supplies. Fronius was founded in 1945, and began manufacturing battery-charging systems shortly thereafter. They made a name for themselves with premium welding technology, especially in the automotive industry. Eventually, technology and engineering standards used in welding applications transferred over to the solar electronics market.

Production facilities have always remained close to home, nestled at the foot of the Alps, in Sattledt, and Weis in northwestern Austria, along with production sites in the Czech Republic and Ukraine. A state-of-the-art facility opened early 2011 in Pettenbach, reaffirming the company's commitment to the European union. Fronius has remained a trusted name in the renewable energy market, offering an extensive line of photovoltaic electronics, built to high quality control standards.

Fronius' IG series of inverters offer residential & commercial grid-tie customers a wide range of products, which reflect the company's proven designs. Their wide input voltage range allows for flexible use of modules in any power and voltage range. These inverters come standard with 3 expansion slots, which allow you to add features like external sensors and remote displays. High-frequency (HF) architecture, and phase shift technology deliver higher reliability and efficiency while reducing size, weight, and installation costs. All Fronius IG series inverters are CSA listed to UL 1741 for the U.S and Canada, and are backed up by standard 10-year warranty with the option for a 5-year extension.

The Fronius IG plus line offers customers more features for larger systems. These inverters provide a lockable, code-compliant DC disconnect with a six circuit, fused string combiner in a separable compartment that stays on the wall if the inverter needs to be serviced. A bus bar is available for bypassing the combiner on higher input currents, and the string combiner can be fused for up to 20 amps per circuit. Fronius IG inverters make a seemingly complex system appear simple and straightforward, maximizing ease-of-use and technological advancement.
