Enteligent unveils high-power rapid shutdown, optimizer device

Enteligent announced a new combined rapid shutdown and optimization device – Enteligent NMax RSD with Optimization – that has achieved certification from the SunSpec Alliance for panel-level rapid shutdown.

“As a new entrant in the solar MLPE space, it was essential for us to show that our devices aren’t cutting corners or making sacrifices in safety or design to achieve our higher performance levels,” said Sean Burke, CEO of Enteligent. “We didn’t just design and build a better mousetrap, we reimagined the mousetrap entirely from the ground up. There are other RSD devices that have achieved SunSpec RSD Certification, but the Enteligent NMax RSD is the only one that also provides optimization as a standard feature, and that is a distinct value add for installers and homeowners.”

Microprocessor controlled, Enteligent’s NMax technology provides panel-level power optimization only when necessary. It delivers the max amount of electricity to the inverter, shade or no shade, at a price competitive to other products which provide only rapid shutdown, the company says. Installation is also simple with plug and play SunSpec RSD Certified interoperability.

In addition to SunSpec certification, the Enteligent NMax M900A1 also achieved UL 1741 and FCC Class B certifications. The M900A1 is a single-input MPLE device, can support input of up to 900W of residential and commercial PV modules, is the highest efficiency device in the industry, and provides a unique health condition monitoring self-diagnostic.

“For decades, solar installers have had to make compromises and settle for MLPE products that perform within their narrow confines,” said Burke. “We founded Enteligent specifically to leverage our decades of experience in the computing and electronics industry to solve the gaps in the existing solar equipment space. We believe that better components are possible and can actually increase adoption of solar across the country. The certification of the Enteligent NMax M900A1 shows that installers and homeowners alike can trust that Enteligent’s products can be an essential and trusted component in their rooftop solar installations”

Availability: The Enteligent NMax M900A1 is available for purchase on Enteligent’s website, and will be followed shortly by the M900A2, a dual-input version. Enteligent’s SolarFirst Hybrid DC Bi-Directional Fast EV Charger is expected to ship in mid 2022.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
