The new UNO Solar DC-to-DC power converter from Phoenix Contact connects directly to a solar array. The UNO Solar converts high voltages from DC strings to 24 V DC, eliminating the costs and hassle of trenching for combiner, re-combiner, and inverter control for anti-islanding applications.
The UNO Solar accepts the 300 to 1000 V DC input generated by the array and converts it to electrically isolated 24 V DC/2.5 A output voltage. For higher current applications, the UNO Solar can be wired in parallel with the use of a decoupling diode.
The UNO Solar’s compact housing and high efficiency means it can be used in small control boxes, said the company.
