The 5,100 Astronergy Gridtie System features the SolarEdge system—a revolutionary way of maximizing the sun’s power using SolarEdge PowerBoxes. Twenty SolarEdge PowerBox optimizers are paired up with Astronergy 255-watt solar panels and strung to an ETL listed 5.0 Kw SolarEdge inverter.
Why Should You Invest in the 5,100 SolarEdge Astronergy Gridtie System? The SolarEdge PowerBox optimizers maximize energy throughput from each and every module through constant tracking of Maximum Power Point individually per module. Because SolarEdge PowerBox optimizers automatically maintain a fixed string voltage, the SolarEdge inverter works at optimal efficiency. Benefits include:
Up to 25% increase in power output.
Faster installations with less wiring.
Maximum roof utilization.
Safest solar system! With built in arc fault detection.
Built-in module-level monitoring for unprecedented remote maintenance capabilities.
25-year reliability and warranty.
Why is a SolarEdge System Better Than a Traditional Gridtie System? In a traditional gridtie system, if only one solar panel in your system is shaded or is down, each and every other solar panel in the array replicates the same power output, reducing the entire system’s power output. In a SolarEdge system, PowerBox optimizers are paired up to each solar panel allowing panels to operate independently at optimal performance.
Fewer Constraints and More Flexibility in the Design Process:
Temperature is not a factor because fixed string voltage ensures the inverter always operates at its peak efficiency voltage and prevents under-voltage power losses even on hot days.
||Panels don’t all have to be facing the same way
Different string lengths can now be accommodated.
Solar power ratings and technologies can vary.
Monitoring Options for Your System. The SolarEdge Module Monitoring portal is a web-based application that provides performance monitoring of your solar panels, fault detection and automatic alerts for accurate troubleshooting localized on a virtual site map. Monitoring is simple with the use of ethernet cable OR ethernet bridge. If you have any questions regarding this system, or would like to discuss a custom-made system, contact us 1-800-472-1142 or at
