ANAHEIM, CA: ET Solar, developer of smart solar energy solutions launches new ET Cell Optimizer Module (COM) in combination with next generation power management integrated circuits (ICs) from Maxim, manufacturer of mixed-signal and analog semiconductors. ET Solar collaborates with Maxim to design, certify, and thoroughly test the new technology.
The new Module can be used for different kinds of on-grid or off-grid applications.ET COM modules replace the diode function with active performance management bringing optimization to each cell string within the fabric of the module. Shade tolerance at the cell level will allow ET COM modules to produce maximum energy. With the help of Maxim's technology the module need not dependent on an external communications network or a specialized inverter to operate. The ET COM modules are compatible with all leading inverters, monitoring equipment, and mounting solutions; with an installation process identical to conventional PV modules.
"We are pleased to have developed the ET COM module with Maxim, to bring yet another leap in performance to our customers. We do this at a price point that will enable even the largest solar projects to enjoy the benefits of performance optimization," says Patrick Guo, Executive Vice President of ET Solar.
