First Australian Solar Inverter approved to new AS/NZS4777.2 standard
The MIL-Systems Eclipse range of Solar PV inverters is the first Australian designed and manufactured inverter to achieve accreditation to the new AS/NZS4777.2 standard. This standard partners the new installation standard and defines all safety and functional requirements for Grid connection of energy systems via inverters. The standard comes into effect in October this year.
All testing of the Eclipse inverters was carried out at the Melbourne office of TÜV Rheinland who are one of the leading providers of these specialist technical services worldwide.
“George Syrek from TÜV Melbourne was one of the key members of the subcommittee that created the new standard which means their group here has great insight into applying and testing to the new standard. George was also instrumental in designing the test protocol necessary for TÜV Melbourne to gain NATA accreditation for testing to the standard.”
The new Australian/New Zealand inverter standard also requires that such products be assessed and accredited to the international IEC62109 safety standard that applies to power conversion for use in photovoltaic systems. This is an important step forward in further improving the product and installation safety for all customers across Australia and New Zealand.
Testing of the MIL-Systems Eclipse inverters by TÜV also included assessment and certification to the Export Limit functionality and operation as defined by SP Ausnet in Victoria. This greatly expands the range of application of Solar PV systems particularly into areas where approvals for installation would otherwise not be granted.
