Enphase brings their 6th generation of microinverters, the smart and simplified IQ system. The combination of the plug-and-play system and the new Q Cable makes the installation even easier than with previous Enphase systems.
The IQ microinverter supports a wide range of 60-72 cell solar panels; they are also compatible with high-power panels. IQ microinverters feature remote update capabilities and are ready to be used in smart grid setups.
Use the IQ6 unit with 60-cell solar panels ranging from 195W to 330W. For 72-cell panels use the IQ6PLUS model compatible for panels up to 400W. Note: the IQ6PPLUS can be paired with 60-cell panels as well.
With the Enphase IQ microinverters you do not to worry about additional rapid shutdown equipment, the microinverters are fully compliant with the NEC requirements. All you need to know is that the shutdown is built into the microinverter and no external parts or disconnects are needed.

Enphase Energy is a worldwide company with its headquarters located in Petaluma, California. They are a global energy technology company that delivers straightforward, innovative and dependable energy management solutions. Enphase Energy is the market leader in microinverters. Their microinverter system is one of the most technologically advanced inverter systems for use with grid-tie, or utility-connected, solar electric systems.
Their microinverters are easy to install and can be easily expanded. With the Enphase system, shading on one panel won’t affect the output of any other panels. They make it easy to expand their system in a more cost effective way by adding another panel and another Enphase microinverter to the array.
Enphase Energy is a company that is committed to quality, reliability and environmental responsibility. Their commitment shows with every product they manufacture. Each system only comes to market after one million hours of power-on testing has been done.
