800VAC BOS Equipment - "EPEC PICS"

800VAC Protected Inverter Combiner Station (PICS)

Innovative BoS solution providing a distributed, protected station for 800VAC output string inverters. The EPEC PICS provides a rack-based group UL-1741 certification for 660VAC – 800VAC string inverters (most brands) matched with our 800VAC fusible output AC combiner. The PICS is designed to bring string inverter initial (CAPEX) investment closer to central inverters for large scale utility solar projects.
