Magnum Energy MicroGT 500 Micro-Inverter

Magnum Energy (a division of Sensata Technologies) recently announced their first grid-tied inverter — the MicroGT 500. Magnum Energy’s MicroGT 500 is an advanced grid-tie microinverter with the ability to communicate with Magnum Energy PAE-series battery-based inverters. This is a major improvement over other grid-tied inverters because it allows your battery backup and grid-tied systems to communicate directly which results in more efficient battery charging and also improves design flexibility, providing more options for battery banks and backup inverters. MicroGT 500 micro-inverters can be paired with 24 volt or 48 volt off-grid Magnum inverters ranging from 4,000 watts up to 17.6kW AC output capacity which makes the MicroGT 500 inverters suitable for small and large systems.

Improved installation and design flexibility

Sensata Technologies is an industry leader in producing durable, user-friendly inverters for the off-grid market and the Magnum Energy brand has been a leader in the renewable energy inverter world for years. Their MicroGT 500 inverters include all of the great features of a microinverter system including individual MPPT inputs for each solar panel and web-based system monitoring options. Remote web monitoring is available displaying PV production and battery state of charge. Two panels are plugged into a MicroGT inverter and multiple inverters are daisy chained together with up to seven MicroGT inverters and fourteen solar panels per 20 amp branch circuit. The MicroGT 500’s daisy chain design and dual MPPT inputs help to reduce extra components and decrease installation costs.

MicroGT 500 inverters can be used as a grid-tied inverter system to offset energy usage, or they can be coupled to a battery-based Magnum inverter for an AC coupled grid-tied battery backup system. These inverters are the ideal choice for starting out with a grid-tied system and then adding battery backup at a later date. Systems can be expanded in the future by adding more micro-inverters and more battery-based inverters for additional solar and backup power capacity.

About Magnum Energy

When Xantrex bought Trace, a few of their key people started Magnum Energy. Established in 2002 in Everett, Washington, Magnum Energy went on to make great strides in the renewable energy field with their high-quality inverters.
A company that doesn't just rest on their brand name, Magnum Energy's research and development team is constantly pushing the boundaries of inverter technology. They pioneered the technology behind power factor corrected battery chargers, which is in each and every one of their inverters. This innovation is the most efficient way to charge batteries. Magnum Inverters save you the time, money and hassle it takes to gas up your generators. Another nice feature of Magnum Energy inverters (whether they are 120 VAC or 240 VAC) is that they can accept 120 or 240 VAC power input to help charge the batteries without the use of a transformer.
Magnum Energy has also made advances with AC Coupling, which allows a solar power grid-tie system to work with a backup battery system that can be charged even during grid black outs. This is a perfect add-on for folks who want to include a battery back-up package to their pre-existing grid-tie system. Read more about AC coupling here.
Magnum Energy inverters are also good-looking, safe, easy-to-use and American-made. Wholesale Solar was one of the first renewable energy companies to distribute Magnum Energy. We carry all Magnum Energy Inverters for RV, Marine, or Back-up power. We have also have teamed up with Magnum Energy to create to power centers called the Mini-Magnum Power Centers. The MS4024PAE and the MS4448PAE Power Centers are perfect for offgrid living or AC coupling with a grid-tied system anywhere.
