AEG Power Solutions Receives UL 1741 Certification for Protect PV.500-UL 1000V Solar Inverter

DALLAS --(Business Wire)--

AEG Power Solutions' (AEG PS) Protect PV.500-UL is one of the market's select few 1000V solar inverter units to receive certification for meeting product safety standards for connection to the United States power grid. With 17 years of experience in the field of photovoltaic testing and certification, TUV Rheinland of North America tested and certified the Protect PV.500-UL as outlined in the UL 1741 standard for solar inverter equipment.

"It was important for us to not only test to UL 1741, but also to obtain full certification from a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory," explained Juergen Schiele, solar research and development director at AEG PS. "We modified our field-proven product to incorporate UL components and space requirements and performed rigorous tests further demonstrating our commitment to safety and quality for the products we offer globally."

The high-efficiency, high-reliability inverter is ideally suited for utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) applications. The Protect PV.500-UL inverter boasts an efficiency greater than 98 percent which exceeds expectations for its power class. It also incorporates grid management features that can adapt to the unique requirements of the utility. With four unique ways to provide reactive power control, adjustable settings for Low Voltage Ride Through, provisional ramp parameters for start and stop operations and remote power control, the inverter's flexibility is unmatched.

A key feature of the PV product line is its power stack with advance-design measuring and control technolog enabling DC input voltages of up to 1000 VDC. In addition to savings on DC wiring and combiner boxes as a result of the higher DC input voltage, the UL-certified Protect PV.500-UL meets utility code requirements and facilitates Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) approval.

"Two major benefits of achieving this certification are that developers can now use a 1000V DC unit with certainty that AHJs will approve the inverter, and investors can be assured of the safety and quality," said Kaivon Mortazavi, vice president of North America for AEG PS. "It also re-enforces our credibility and positions us strongly in the U.S. solar market."

The Protect PV.500 products are also available as part of a fully integrated 1 MW equipment shelter with two Protect PV.500 inverters, communications equipment, MV transformer and switchgear.

"We can now address the U.S. market with a fully certified inverter. Our strategy is to compensate for solar market contractions in Europe by establishing ourselves in growth regions such as Eastern Europe, India, Africa and North America. That's why we recently opened our facility in South Africa, and that's also why this certification is another important step for our company," explains Horst Kayser, CEO of AEG PS.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
