SMA Solar Technology AG Is First Inverter Manufacturer Worldwide to Meet New Japanese FRT Requirements

(PresseBox) (Niestetal / Tokyo, ) Japan Electrical Safety and Environment Technology Laboratories (JET) has recertified SMA's Sunny Tripower 10000TLEE-JP successfully. This means the inverter already meets the new FRT requirements in accordance with JEAC 9701-2012 that is due to take effect in Japan at the end of the year. SMA is the first inverter manufacturer worldwide to meet these upcoming directives, even outpacing Japanese manufactures.

"This certification gives SMA a significant advantage over the competition that will boost our technological leadership in the Asian market," said SMA Chief Executive Officer Pierre-Pascal Urbon. "It will enable us to achieve even greater success in the Japanese market and consolidate our position as an international technological leader. The advance certification will appeal particularly to the cautious Japanese market and help us to convince consumers of SMA's outstanding quality."

The three-phase Sunny Tripower 10000TLEE-JP is designed for commercial PV systems with an output of over 10 kWp and features a peak efficiency of 97.8% that is the best in its class. Its robust enclosure for outdoor installations offers excellent protection against dirt, water and salt-containing atmospheres. The inverter's connection area is adapted to Japanese conduits.

Already since 2012, in addition to the Sunny Tripower 10000TLEE-JP, SMA has also been offering JET-certified Sunny Boy inverters for residential PV systems and Sunny Central inverters for PV power plants tailored to local requirements on the Japanese market.
