Fronius Galvo – specialising in private consumption
The Fronius Galvo is an extremely safe single-phase electrically-isolated transformer inverter. With power categories ranging from 1.5 to 3.1 kW1 and enormous configuration flexibility, it is the ideal choice for households and small PV installations. Its integrated energy management function makes it particularly suitable for private consumption systems. It will be possible to use this device all over the world. Production is due to start in July 2013.
Fronius Symo – a three-phase device for the highest possible yields
Fronius Symo is the new three-phase inverter from Fronius. This transformerless device comes in power categories of 3.0 kW, 3.7 kW and 4.5 kW and generates the highest possible yields. The inverters feature an innovative hinged design that makes assembly and installation child’s play. The Fronius Symo can be installed indoors or outdoors. The Fronius Symo will be available around the world² from the 4th quarter of 2013. One by one, additional power categories will follow.
Fronius IG Plus 55 V-1 and V-2 – the all-rounders
In the 5.0 kW power category, the single-phase Fronius IG Plus 55 V-1 and the two-phase Fronius IG Plus 55 V-2 are the ideal choice for single-family homes and commercial premises. The successful Fronius IG Plus inverter series covers all the bases in terms of number of phases and power categories. Both devices will be available around the world² from March 2013.
Fronius Agilo Outdoor – the first central inverter that can be serviced by the installer
The Fronius Agilo is the first central inverter in its power categories that can be fully installed and commissioned by the installer, and also be serviced and repaired by the Fronius Service Partner. In the 75 kW and 100 kW power categories, the Fronius Agilo is the ideal solution for industrial and commercial PV installations. It can be transported on a standard industrial pallet. This ensures that costs can be kept to a minimum from the moment the device is delivered. What’s more, the device can be set up outdoors without requiring any protection. Its high protection class of IP 55 guarantees a long service life for the power electronics. Production of the outdoor version will start in March.
Fronius Solar.Web 2 – Intuitive system monitoring
Fronius Solar.Web 2 is the new, powerful and innovative leap forward in system monitoring that doesn’t cost a penny. The visualisation of data is intuitive and detailed. Fronius Solar.Web 2 also features clear formatting and management of data from photovoltaic systems. Another point in its favour is the comprehensive, detailed analysis of irradiance data and yields. Fronius Solar.Web 2 will be available from the 2nd quarter of 2013.
Fronius Datamanager – a wide range of functions on a single card
Fronius Datamanager is the new generation of Fronius Datalogger Web, offering additional options and benefits.
