Enphase IQ Series Grid Tied Microinverter System
Enphase IQ Series microinverters are designed for higher power modules, and are smart grid ready. With increased efficiency and a 25-year standard warranty, these lightweight microinverters utilize a simple two-wire cable system that lower cost and reduce installation time. Communications to the Envoy is now over the current conductors, eliminating the need for a neutral wire in the PV system. Enphase IQ6 and IQ6+ microinverter systems conform to NEC 2014 and NEC 2017 section 690.12 and C22.1-2015 Rule 64-218 Rapid Shutdown of PV Systems, when installed according manufacturer’s instructions, and are compliant to new Rule 21 (UL 1741-SA) requirements.
IQ micros have a 97% efficiency rating. The IQ7 can be used with 60-cell modules up to 300W/350W while the IQ7+ microinverters can work with 60 or 72-cell modules up to 400W/440W respectively. IQ7X should be used for 96-cell modules, while the IQ7A can be used for high power 60 and 72 cell modules. Enphase has no enforced DC/AC ratio. Visit the Enphase compatibility calculator located at www.enphase.com for compatible models.
Unique to these microinverters is an exchangeable cabling system, where you can change the input connectors from MC4 to H4 if needed. GlobalSolarSupply.com will be stocking IQ/IQ+ microinverters with MC4 connector as standard.
