APsystems’ APsmart RSD, SMA Inverters PVSRE Compliant
APsystems, a global provider of multi-platform MLPE solutions, has added SMA to its growing network of inverter manufacturers that are compatible with the Sunsmec standard APsmart-branded photovoltaic emergency shutdown system (PVRSE).
Solar professionals in the USA can now combine the full range of SunSpec Rapid Shutdown-certified SMA inverters with a reliable APsmart Rapid Shutdown solution. The APsmart RSD is available in all US sales partner networks of APsmart and has been certified by CSA to UL 1741 for electrical safety. It fully complies with the National Electric Code (NEC) 2014, 2017 and 2020 690.12 requirements for fast shutdown.
“We are proud that SMA, one of the most respected and recognized brands in the industry, has been added to our list of inverter manufacturers using APsmart RSD,” said Olivier Jacques, president of the business unit and global executive vice president at APsystems.
The APsmart RSD is already compatible with leading inverter manufacturers such as Chint, CSI, Delta, Fronius, GoodWe, Growatt, Solectria and Solis and has a 25-year guarantee. Tens of thousands of devices have been installed around the world since its introduction year.
Due to intensive tests and the cooperation between SMA and APsystems, the approved rapid shutdown solution will now be available to customers via the APsmart sales channel.
