Schneider Electric Solutions

Enabled by PriorityPower the Conext™ XW ProXW+ and SW will prioritize the self-consumption of stored battery and PV generated power over grid power, helping homeowners avoid high utility charges. Both XW series and SW also provide for backup in areas prone to grid outages. Conext™ XW Pro and XW+ takes it one step further by enabling excess PV power to be sold using GridSell.

Coupling the PV system to the battery bank with Conext™ MPPT Solar Charge Controllers is the most efficient and economical method for self-consumption and for storing PV power. Both Conext™ XW series and SW will also charge the battery bank from the grid if solar irradiation is insufficient. Batteries and Solar PV can be scaled up as needed.

There are two main applications of ParallelPower:

Peak Load Shaving: The Conext™ XW Pro, XW+ and SW can limit the power draw from the utility connection by adding power above a  set point to support large temporary loads, helping avoid peak usage charges in areas with the tier-based tariff on the capacity of incoming feed or on peak consumption.

Grid Boosting: The Conext™ XW Pro, XW+ and SW can supplement grid input with extra AC power to support large loads, temporarily boosting power within a home beyond the limit of the grid connection.

XW Pro Solar Hybrid Inverter/Charger 240V

Meet Conext™ XW Pro, our hybrid inverter / charger that is compliant with Rule 21, HECO Rule 14H, UL 1741 SA and PREPA

The new XW Pro solar hybrid inverter/charger is a future-ready solution that is designed to adapt to next-generation grid requirements.

Together with Schneider Electric’s broad range of Conext™ solar products, the  XW Pro is the ideal solution for solar and storage requirements that comply with evolving grid codes.

  • Rule 21, HECO Rule 14H, and PREPA compliant

  • Integrated with Conext™ Gateway and Insight for simplified system configuration and powerful remote monitoring & control

  • Interoperates with solar charge controllers and PV inverters in AC-coupled configurations

Conext MPPT 60 150 PV Solar Charge Controller

MPPT multi-stage charging, better battery life

The Conext™ MPPT 60 150 is a photovoltaic (PV) charge controller that tracks the maximum power point of a PV array to deliver the maximum available current for charging batteries. When charging, the MPPT 60 150 regulates battery voltage and output current based on the amount of energy available from the PV array and state-of-charge of the battery.

Conext MPPT 80 600 Solar PV Charge Controller

Install for less, harvest more energy

The Conext™ MPPT 80 600 solar charge controller offers an industry-first set of integration features and top performance that allows for large PV array systems to be easily installed and connected to the battery bank at the lowest overall cost. Installing one MPPT 80 600 is faster than installing multiple smaller charge controllers and lowers overall costs further by utilizing fewer PV strings, smaller wiring and conduit, and by eliminating the need for PV combiner boxes and DC circuit breakers.

Conext Gateway

Advanced solar and battery system control solution

The new Conext™ Gateway provides local system configuration and management as well as live system monitoring for the residential and commercial range of solar and battery applications. To accelerate the installation and system setup process, the Conext™ Gateway offers wireless access point (WAP) connectivity along with more intuitive configuration and system management tools. To give users better insights into your solar system performance, the Conext™ Gateway’s graphing and reporting interfaces are completely updated. The Conext™ Gateway together with Insight will bring system monitoring and remote management to the cloud.

Monitoring System:  Insight

 

Powerful yet simple energy management software for residential & commercial users

Insight brings intuitive monitoring and control to both homeowners and commercial site operators as well as solar installers. Rich features such as monitoring, reporting, and remote control ensure that everyone can access critical system information when you need it from anywhere at any time.

Some of the key features of Insight include:

  • Simple and intuitive user experience

  • Access from anywhere at any time

  • Performance monitoring, reporting, and remote control of your system at your fingertips

  • Multi-site management

  • Compliance with international cybersecurity standards

 

Log in Insight and access your system. If you’ve had access to Conext™ Insight 2, you can use the same credentials.

Freedom Won  LiTe Lithium-Ion batteries.

Freedom Won offers long overdue next-generation energy storage with a quantum increase in service life and operational efficiency at a fraction of the lifecycle cost compared to other energy storage options.

We have both Africa’s unique power challenges covered, as well as the world over, with our leading range of superior LiTe batteries (LiFePO4 – Lithium Iron Phosphate).

Freedom Won’s Lite battery solutions are fast becoming the preferred choice as the huge advantages of using this technology become apparent via our LiTe batteries, installed within both the residential and business environments.

  • High energy density: more energy with less weight.

  • High charge currents (shortens the charge period).

  • High discharge currents (enabling, for example, electrical cooking on a small battery bank).

  • Long battery life (up to six times the battery life of a conventional battery).

  • High efficiency between charging and discharging (very little energy loss due to heat development).

  • Higher continuous power available.

  • Rugged | Efficient | Size-Weight-Look | Cost-Efficient

  • Proudly South African.

Basic Self-Consumption/ESS Explained:

  • Backup Load/Priority Circuits get power in this order:

    • 1st: from Solar Panels   2nd: from Batteries    3rd: Last resort is the Grid.

  • Once the battery is fully charged (typically around midday) and the Load has power from the Solar Panels, excess solar power will:

    • Supply Solar Power to the Non-Essential loads in your home main DB (e.g. geysers, pools, ponds, washing machines, etc).

    • Maximising your Electricity Savings in the entire Home.

  • Battery Power (Solar Charged) will then supply the night time load (extending your Elec Savings even further).

  • A reserve amount of battery can be programmed in to be used in case of Load-shedding.

Optional Extra's:

 

  • Internet Monitoring: View system performance in real time on your computer or mobile device and allow AM Solar to monitor remotely

  • 3-Phase:  Upgrade this SYSTEM to a 3-Phase output.  

  • Up-scale: increase system output. These Systems are parrallellable, meaning you can add additional systems in the future.
