New solar inverter M125HV from Delta for large ground-mounted solar PV installations
Three-phase string inverter for solar PV installations with 140 kVA capacity and 99.2 percent peak efficiency
Delta Electronics, one of the world’s leading providers of power equipment and power management solutions, has launched a new three-phase string inverter for solar PV systems. The M125HV has taken the maximum capacity of a Delta inverter to new heights with its 140 kVA and promises to optimize yields from large ground-mounted solar PV installations with an industry-leading peak efficiency of 99.2 percent.
Top performance for large ground-mounted installations
The M125HV has a maximum output power of 140 kVA and an input voltage range of 860 to 1600 volts. A single unit can handle up to 20 strings connected via Amphenol connectors. These features make the M125HV particularly well-suited to megawatt-scale ground-mounted installations. This high-performance inverter offers considerably higher yields than other inverters thanks to its peak efficiency of 99.2 percent. The high input voltage results in lower current, which allows for smaller cable diameters and minimizes energy loss.
“The M125HV is a good decision for solar operators in every respect,” said Andreas Hoischen, Director PV Inverter Sales for Delta EMEA. “With this new inverter, we’re setting a new benchmark for performance, bankability, and usability. These benefits are particularly important to operators of large ground-mounted solar systems.”
Rugged, safe, durable
The intelligent cooling system combines natural convection with active ventilation using outside air. This means no hotspots will develop inside the housing and the electronics always remain within the ideal temperature range. As a result, the M125HV operates flawlessly even in regions that experience very high outdoor temperatures. The rugged, IP65-rated aluminum housing ensures that neither dirt nor moisture can get inside the electronics. In addition, the printed circuit boards are protected by a surface finish.
Delta has pre-installed type 2 surge protection devices on the input and output sides to guard against overvoltage. In addition, DC disconnect switches have been integrated into the class II terminal box. The M125HV also contains no electrolytic capacitors and therefore has a particularly long service life.
Control and monitoring — detailed, yet simple
The Sunspec protocol that the M125HV uses greatly simplifies installation and monitoring for solar installers and operators. This technology allows the inverter to easily integrate into the respective system with all the major parameters for remote monitoring displayed in detail, including I-V curves for each individual string. In addition, operators can use either third-party solutions or the new cloud monitoring solution MyDeltaSolar, allowing them to have a clear overview of their operating data right down to the last detail.
