Siemens also says that the inverter can achieve full output even at an ambient temperature of 45 degrees Celsius and that peak efficiency is 98.2 percent. Because of the inverter’s compact build, it is also about 40 percent lighter than comparable units, the company says.

The unit has been available in Germany since August and will be introduced in Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, the Czech Republic, and Portugal at a later date. In Germany, Siemens also offers a 24-hour exchange service in the case of technical problems.
