FAQ: Multiple micro-inverter installation
I have a microinverter installation with products from ABC Company. I have 2kW installation (8x250Wp). Now I wish to increase my installation with more inverters. My questions:
1) The products from ABC Company use a PLC communication to work with the gateway. Is the YC-500 and YC-500 gateway compatible with the ABC products and the PLC communication?
No, sorry. There is no compatibility of the products from different manufacturers. Each product has its own protocol and the products cannot be managed together.
2) Can the ABC products and the YC-500 inverters work on the same AC line (same phase)?
Yes, there are many installations where inverters (and microinverters) from various manufacturers work together in the AC 230V grid line (phase). Since the grid requirements are the same for all products, observing these requirements makes all product compatible on the AC line – for the energy production. (Not for the communication protocols).
