SolarMax Group presents its system solution MaxStorage TP-S for storing solar energy
The SolarMax Group is presenting its new storage solution MaxStorage TP-S for the very first time at the leading trade fair for the international solar industry, Intersolar Europe in Munich. The new system solution has a modular construction, uniting lithium-ion battery storage, a battery management system, a tried and tested SolarMax TP-Series inverter and the new MaxWeb XPN energy manager, all in one casing.
For the inverters, customers can choose between three TP-Series devices with rated outputs of five to seven kilowatts. Thanks to their dynamic 70% power reduction they can control consumers to increase self-consumption. The basic storage module has a capacity of 3.6 kilowatt-hours and can be extended in stages of 1.2 kilowatt-hours up to 12 kilowatt-hours. The DC-coupled system achieves a charging efficiency factor of von 97 per cent, and it can be discharged in wide operating range of -20 to + 60 degrees Celsius.
Self-learning energy management
For managing energy, the SolarMax Group has developed the new MaxWeb XPN data logger. As nodal point for remote monitoring it records current readings, yield data and events. As an energy management centre it regulates the energy flow and adjusts it to suit energy need and availability. This makes it possible to use existing resources intelligently.
All used and surrendered power is visualised, and both own consumption and electricity saved are graphically represented. The MaxWeb XPN software is self-learning: based on typical consumption and the weather forecast the data logger determines the best time to store solar power, which increases efficiency and maximises returns.
New business division MaxStorage
“More and more plant operators want to be independent of the grid and increasing energy prices. With our modular storage systems we offer complete systems specially put together to meet the customers needs, and all from the same source”, explains Mathias Mader, managing director of the SolarMax Group. With the launch of the new TP-S storage system, the SolarMax Group is expanding its range to include the new business division dedicated to the storage of solar power, MaxStorage.
The starter model for the single family home range TP-S is available as of 4Q/2016. An extension for larger capacity ranges with the MT-S and HT-S models is planned. The group grants a ten-year system guarantee for all storage system solutions.
High-performance central inverter for large-scale projects
As well as the storage system solution, the group is presenting its high-performance RX-Series central inverter for the first time in Munich. SolarMax has developed both outdoor inverters with rated capacities of 500 and 600 kilowatts for large-scale international projects. They will be on the market by the end of the year.
The SolarMax Group is showing its products at the Intersolar Europe trade fair in Munich from 22 to 24 June in Hall B2, at Stand No. 580. More information at www.intersolar.de.
There will be a new product presentation for journalists at the SolarMax stand. An invitation will follow shortly.
