The interaction between KOSTAL's shadow management and BRC Solar's M500/14 Power Optimiser means that the available power of the impaired module continues to be used while the remaining modules in the string deliver maximum power.
The problem posed by different roof orientations or different module inclinations can also be resolved with the innovative solutions from KOSTAL and BRC Solar. With its three MPP trackers, the PLENTICORE plus from KOSTAL offers a flexible string layout. This means that even complex housing roofs can be equipped with a photovoltaic system. If the usable roof area is smaller and the minimum voltage of the string is not sufficient, these PV modules can be integrated into an existing string thanks to the BRC optimisers. This means that even more complex roof surfaces can be optimally and efficiently utilised and additional PV modules can even be installed on dormers or smaller roof surfaces, for example.
Pascal Ruisinger, Commercial Managing Director of BRC Solar, said, "This confirmation of compatibility with KOSTAL inverters is a significant milestone for us. We firmly believe that our collaboration with KOSTAL will help us to realise our vision of equipping all roofs with an optimised PV system."
"We are delighted with the successful collaboration with BRC Solar. The combination of our inverters with the powerful Power Optimizer M500/14 offers our customers a more efficient and powerful solution for their photovoltaic systems – even on problematic roofs", confirms Product Manager Dennis Hollenbeck from KOSTAL.
Maximum convenience with auto update and 10-year warranty
When commissioning the PLENTICORE plus, activating the auto update function once enables the inverter software to be updated automatically, without any intervention by the installer. This ensures maximum safety and saves a lot of time for the end user and the installer.
And by activating the Smart Warranty and Smart Warranty plus, KOSTAL customers receive a warranty period of up to 10 years. In addition, the warranty of the PLENTICORE plus and the Power Optimiser is retained in full even in combined use.
