The Delta Electronics H8E (8kW) and H10E (10kW) are single phase inverters scheduled to be available in Australia in the second quarter of 2021.
Among their features is rear cable entry for a tidier install, but glands for side and bottom conduit entry are also included. Export control and a consumption meter are incorporated inside the inverter, needing only the CT clamp and cable to be run back to the board.
Other features include an internal ERAC Listed Level 3 DC isolator, natural convection cooling and OTA (Over The Air) firmware updates. The H8E and H10E can also host their own networks where Wi-Fi internet is not available at a site.
Probably the most interesting feature really making the H8E and H10E stand out from the pack is the integrated 4 x MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking). It’s pretty common for solar inverters to have 2 built in MPP trackers these days, but this is the first we’ve heard of 4.
Delta has been around since the 1970’s. SolarQuotes founder Finn has always been confident in the reliability of Delta Electronics components, resulting from his stint many years ago as a control systems engineer in a UK nuclear power plant where Delta Electronics power supplies were used.
