Happy Holidays 2021

APsmart Exhibited at SNEC 15th Conference & Exhibition and held on-site certification ceremony for RSD-D

Following a very special period for everyone, the whole APsmart team is delighted and excited more than ever to present our future-facing advanced rapid shutdown solutions RSD-D products to you at the SNEC Conference & Exhibition in Shanghai, China.

The APsystems booth hosted an on-site certification ceremony for the new generation of dual Rapid shutdown products: the RSD-D. CSA Group leaders visited the APsystems booth and presented relevant product certificates in person to Guoliang Wu, Vice General Manager of Engineering at APsystems.

The new RSD-D meets NEC 2017 & 2020 (690.12) requirements, enabling the critical rapid shutdown function while simultaneously improving product cost and performance. By using the RSD-D and Transmitter-PLC in solar PV installations, the connection between each module can be cut off  in case of an emergency, thus eliminating any high voltage DC in the solar array, which reduces the risk of accidents and improves the safety of the PV system.

The highlights of RSD-D include:

  • Dual-input channel
  • Supports modules at 8-80V Per Channel
  • Maximum Current is 15A/20Aper input
  • Buckle to the PV module frame directly
  • IP68 enclosure rating
  • Meets NEC 2017 & 2020 (690.12) requirements
  • Executes rapid shutdown of system when Transmitter-PLC signal is absent
  • Meets SunSpec requirements

Every afternoon during the conference, APsmart technical experts shared best installation practices, system introduction and case study analysis on the latest rapid shutdown products and solutions, which attracted a large audience.

APsmart Webinar: Rapid Shutdown Solution Overview and Installation Training

Description: This webinar will cover the features and benefits of the Rapid Shutdown Device (RSD) and Transmitter comprising APsmart’s convenient rapid shutdown system for commercial projects. Attendees will learn:

  • An overview of the APsmart Rapid Shutdown solution
  • Details about the system technology and capability
  • Benefits and options of using the APsmart RSD and Transmitter solution
  • Installation and operation of the RSD and Transmitter

The APsmart RSD System is a SunSpec Alliance Certified (paired) device which maintains constant communication between the RSD-S-PLC and Transmitter-PLC, constantly monitoring voltage and current. When proper voltage is not detected, the Transmitter-PLC stops sending the keep-alive signal to the RSD-S-PLC device, initiating a module-level rapid shutdown sequence.

From the developers at APsystems, APsmart offers state-of-the-art PV module rapid shutdown devices (RSD-S-PLC), ideal for any new or existing string or central inverter system, and meeting U.S. NEC 2017 690.12 Rapid Shutdown requirements. Leveraging APsystems’ proven expertise in module-level power electronics, APsmart solutions are powered by ASIC with internal IP and integrated with TI chips at the system-level application.
