CPS launches new generation SCE series grid-tied PV inverters18. June 2012 | By: Chint Power
Chint Power Systems (CPS) launched the new generation SCE series Grid-tied PV inverters at the Intersolar Europe Exhibition （June 13-15, 2012）.
The new generation succeeded with the concise design and high reliability features from the former generation, is featuring a great improvement in the product performance.
CPS has been long dedicated to the research and development of PV inverters. CPS SC series products have gained good reputation in the market in various residential and commercial rooftop applications by its professional industrial design, customized installation method, convenient operation interface and strict reliability design. The SCE series PV inverters comprise of 1.5KW, 2KW, 3KW, 4KW, 4.6KW, are the upgraded version of SC series, which are safer, more efficient and more user-friendly for our customers.
The Max. efficiency of SCE series inverter is 97.5%; and its Euro efficiency reaches up to 97%, which takes the lead in the industry. Besides, the MPPT input voltage ranges up to 600Vdc in order to allow more flexible configuration for the PV modules. In addition, the new generation has a wider temperature range to fit in various operating conditions.
SCE series Grid-tied PV inverters are embedded with DC switches to disconnect the DC power conveniently and ensure the safety of customers. The integrated DC switch lowers the cost of installation. Besides, SCE series provides a more stable anti-islanding protection to avoid potential damages to equipments.

RS485 works as the communication port and the USB port is for testing and software upgrade. The new product also shares the same monitoring system with the former generation product.
The reactive power compensation function of the new generation is adjustable. It can be realized by commands to adjust the PF of AC output by +/-0.9 (default value is 0.99) via USB connection with a PC.
Conforming to the latest regulations
The new product conforms to the VDE-AR-N 4105 regulations. The new VDE 4105 requires the reactive power output control of inverters for the smart grid when compared with the previous VDE 0126 standard. Besides, our product passes the EMI class B standard test for civil use in both residential and commercial environments.
“The new SCE series small power inverter has improved its quality and integrated performance to a new level compared with the former generation. The successful launch of the new products symbolizes that CPS has edged its role of the 1st class inverter companies in the world. We will continue to be dedicated to the development and research of new products to provide better services for the worldwide solar market.” said R&D department director Joe Zhang from Shanghai Chint Power Systems Co., Ltd.
From this July, CPS SCE series inverters will provide our customers a new experience with higher efficiency and more user-friendly convenience. In the meantime, the former generation products will continue its production and to provide the after-sales service for our customers.
