PIKO MP plus – the flexible 1-phase inverter

Who says small photovoltaic systems aren’t worth the effort? The PIKO MP plus will show them a thing or two. With power classes of between 1.5-4.6 kW, KOSTAL’s PV inverter can be used with just three or more modules and is therefore ideal for small home-based systems. The PIKO MP plus delivers extremely stable yields and its wide input voltage range provides numerous wiring options for the PV modules. 
Thanks to the great equipment provided, it can be connected both as a PV inverter in a new system or simply installed on the AC side* as storage for an existing system. Adding the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter* allows the inverter to be used to store energy* without an additional inverter. 

*These functions will probably be available from Q 01/2019.

 

Product features

Numerous wiring options allow the PIKO MP plus to be used in many different ways in private photovoltaic systems.

And the PIKO MP plus can do even more 

The PIKO MP plus can be extended in the future, enabling it to store electricity.

Extend to produce a PV system capable of storing electricity*

  • With the KOSTAL Smart Energy Manager, a battery can be connected to the PIKO MP plus with two MPP trackers
  • If devices have two MPP trackers, one MPP tracker can be used as a two-way input*

Ideal for retrofitting 

  • Even devices with one MPP tracker deliver a battery function as an AC-coupled battery connection

Ideal for new systems

  • Battery function for DC-coupled battery connection available in devices with two MPP trackers*
*These functions will probably be available from Q 01/2019.

PIKO MP plus – there’s something in it

The PIKO MP plus helps even small PV systems gain maximum efficiency. And because the KOSTAL inverters are well-engineered products, all key components for system planning have already been taken into account and provided.  

Smart optimisation

Smaller photovoltaic systems on detached homes benefit in particular from the PIKO MP plus KOSTAL inverter. With just three or more modules, the PIKO MP plus achieves maximum efficiency and supplies the home with power. A battery can even be connected to the small power pack as of the first quarter of 2019. And all other components for the system set-up are already fitted. 

  • Wide range of voltages and currents for flexible string design
  • Self-learning shadow management
  • User-friendly layout through KOSTAL Solar Plan
