Written by: Leonard Parker | Solar News | 27th March


APsmart announced a new Photovoltaic Rapid Shutdown System (PVRSS) certification to the UL 1741 standard with several new inverters from Growatt.

Six unique Growatt inverter models, ranging from 3 kW to 6 kW, were tested by CSA and certified for use with APsmart’s Photovoltaic Rapid Shutdown Equipment (PVRSE). Among them is Growatt’s new single-phase hybrid inverter, ideal for both new and retrofit solar. The following inverter models have been added:

SPH 3000TL BL-US SPH 3600TL BL-US SPH 4000TL BL-US SPH 4600TL BL-US SPH 5000TL BL-US SPH 6000TL BL-US

APsmart continues to expand its network of certified inverters, giving customers more choices from the ever-growing list of compatible inverters with APsmart’s PVRSE. All inverters on the APsmart list have been tested with APsmart’s rapid shutdown devices, including the RSD-S-PLC, RSD-D and Transmitter, in order to obtain the qualification to be listed on the PVRSS compatibility list.

Currently, the APsmart Rapid Shutdown Solution is compatible with more than 120+ inverter models from 11 unique brands, including CPS, CSI, Delta, FIMER, Fronius, Goodwe, Growatt, SMA, SolaX, Solis and Solectria. The compatibility of these inverters and APsmart Rapid Shutdown Equipment (PVRSE) enables APsmart to offer a more reliable, flexible, safe and cost-effective solution for both residential and commercial systems.
