Designed for high-powered, 60-cell modules, the advanced grid-ready Enphase S280 MicroinverterTM is built on the fifth-generation platform and achieves the highest efficiency for module-level power electronics along with cost per watt reduction. With its all-AC approach, the S280 simplifies design and installation for 280 VA installations, and delivers optimal energy harvest. The S280 is compatible with storage systems, including battery management systems.
The Enphase S280 integrates seamlessly the Enphase Envoy-STM communications gateway, and Enphase EnlightenTM monitoring and analysis software.
The Enphase Microinverter converts the DC output of the PV module into grid-compliant AC power. In addition, the Enphase Microinverter maximizes energy production by using a sophisticated Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm. Each Enphase Microinverter individually connects to one PV module in your array. This configuration enables an individual MPPT to control each PV module, ensuring that maximum power available from each PV module is exported to the utility grid regardless of the performance of the other PV modules in the array. While an individual PV module in the array may be affected by shading, soiling, orientation, or PV module mismatch, each Enphase Microinverter ensures top performance for its associated PV module.
Enphase Energy has been a trusted name in the solar industry since 2006 and has played a major role in pioneering micro-inverter technology. Enphase micro-inverters are known for having revolutionized grid-tied system design and reliability by eliminating the single failure point of a central inverter system while also reducing the impact of partial system shading, debris coverage and panel failure.
System owners can easily monitor their array’s performance via the built-in display of the wall-mounted Envoy-S System Monitor (sold separately) or from any smart phone with an internet connection. Utilizing the Envoy-S, Enphase Energy’s Enlighten™ monitoring service uses advanced power line communications technology to stay in touch with each micro-inverter without additional wiring or equipment.
Enphase continues to offer its Enlighten™ monitoring service free for the lifetime of the solar system allowing customers to get the absolute most out of their systems.
