Enphase brings their 7th 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 IQ7X microinverter supports only 96-cell solar panels for a range of 320W to 460W. IQ microinverters feature remote update capabilities and are ready to be used in smart grid setups.
Use the IQ7X unit with 96-cell solar panels such as Panasonic HIT. The maximum number of IQ7X microinverters per branch (20A) at 240V is of 12. For 72-cell panels use the IQ7PLUS model compatible for panels up to 440W. Note: the IQ7PLUS 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.
