Guardian Solar Converter

Guardian Solar Converter


Product Information

The compact FPV30.48G 2.9kW 48VDC 60 amp Solar PV Converter joins the ranks of the Guardian products family supporting up to 14.5kW solar arrays in a 1RU 23” shelf. Maximum energy harvest from the valuable photovoltaic (PV) array is accomplished through a >99% Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm.

The FPV30.48G 60 amp Solar PV Converter provides a modular building block for Renewable Energy and Hybrid sites and caters for a broad blend of CapEx, OpEx and ROI models. Accompanied by the Guardian Power System, indoor and outdoor enclosures and PV string combiners, Green Cubes provides a total site solution across a wide range of challenging environments.
