APsmart proudly announces that new CSI and Ginlong Inverters for C&I applications are now listed on its Photovoltaic Rapid Shutdown Systems (PVRSS) certification. The newly added inverters include CSI CSI-T480GL02-U series and Ginlong Solis-5G-US series, ranging from 75 kW to 100 kW, three-phase for large commercial arrays.
With the newly added C&I Inverters come strong LCOE advantages. Less labor and fewer inverters will be needed for the same capacity, which could dramatically lower the system investment cost. Operational costs are also reduced, as there are fewer units to maintain. The compatibility of CSI and Ginlong C&I Inverters with the APsmart Rapid Shutdown Devices is an exciting development and greatly beneficial to both customers and the market at large.
Available throughout APsmart U.S. distribution partner networks, the APsmart RSD has met the UL 1741 standard for electrical safety and is fully compliant with the National Electric Code (NEC) 2014, 2017 and 2020 690.12 Rapid Shutdown requirements.
In order to obtain the PVRSS certification, each inverter must be independently tested with APsmart’s rapid shutdown devices (RSD-S and RSD-D) to ensure compatibility, and proper functioning as a rapid shutdown system.
APsmart Rapid Shutdown solutions are now compatible with more than 150 inverter models from 14 unique brands, including CHINT, CSI, Delta, FIMER, Fronius, Goodwe, Growatt, LG, POMCube, Q CELLS, SMA, SolaX, Solis and Solectria. The APsmart PVRSS solution offers a more reliable, flexible, safe, and cost-effective solution for residential, commercial and utility systems. For a list of compatible inverters with APsmart Rapid Shutdown Devices, please refer to the “Inverters compatibilities” page on the APsmart website.
The APsmart RSD System offers built-in safety, reliable technology, and is CSA, TUV, and SunSpec Alliance certified, which demonstrates the robust safety and quality of the RSD product. More than 1 million APsmart RSD devices have been shipped and installed in multiple projects around the world.
