EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, April 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enphase Energy, Inc. (ENPH), a global energy technology company and the world’s leading supplier of solar microinverters, today announced the introduction of its seventh-generation Enphase IQ™ microinverters for the Enphase Home Energy Solution with IQ™ for the UK market. Seventh-generation IQ microinverters are powered by Enphase’s unique software-defined architecture which results in an efficient design and a single hardware SKU worldwide.
IQ 7 microinverters produce 11% more power, and are 31% lighter and 15% smaller than Enphase’s M215 microinverters, which they replace. Compared to the sixth-generation IQ 6 product, IQ 7 microinverters produce 4% more power, and are 19% lighter and 16% smaller. The new IQ Microinverters offer an easier and faster installation experience with revolutionary two-wire cabling, and leverage semiconductor integration for higher reliability and better economies of scale. The 250 W AC Enphase IQ 7 Micro and the 295 W AC Enphase IQ 7+ Micro will be followed by a new, high-power 320 W AC variant, the Enphase IQ 7X Micro, to address 96-cell modules. Recently, Enphase won the Dutch Solar Innovation Award 2018 at Solar Solutions, the largest tradeshow in the Benelux region, for the IQ 7 Microinverter series, a further testament to its continuing drive to deliver innovative and high-quality products.
“With the introduction of our IQ 7 microinverters in the UK solar market, we continue to deliver on our vision to provide clean energy for everyone,” said Peter van Berkel, general manager Enphase Energy EMEA.
“IQ 7 offers unique advantages, making it extremely suitable for the UK’s social housing and new build segments. We look forward to offering our customers this next-generation product with the increasing quality, features and functionality they have come to expect from an Enphase product.”
As part of the Enphase IQ System™, seventh-generation IQ microinverters offer significant benefits to installers and homeowners, including:
- Seamless integration into the Enphase Home Energy Solution with IQ and energy monitoring and insights from the Enphase Enlighten™ software platform's easy-to-use interface.
- Greater reliability achieved via BOM reduction enabled by a new 55nm ASIC.
- Fast and easy installation with the suite of IQ related products: the lighter two-wire Enphase Q Cable™, Enphase Envoy™, and the Enphase AC Battery™.
