The mounting surface of the new IPM models is about 30% less than that of Mitsubishi Electric’s current PV series IPMs launched in 2005. This compact package helps make PV inverters smaller, the company said.

Mitsubishi Electric has prepared six models in the new PV series to suit the various types of circuits in PV inverters, such as single output inverter, single output inverter with one chopper, as well as single output inverter with two choppers. The lineup consists of 4-chip, 5-chip and 6-chip modules, each with a choice of one of two types of current rating: 50 amperes (A) and 75A.

The company said that the new PV Series is compliant with the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances (RoHS) in electrical and electronic equipment directive.
