COLUMBUS, OH—AMETEK Solidstate Controls, a leader in highly customized uninterruptable power supply (UPS) systems and industrial power inverters, now offers the new RECon 1000V UL Modular PV inverter, manufactured by FRIEM S.p.A.

“The new RECon line provides class-leading efficiency, 1000V UL certification, and the ease of installation associated with modular design,” notes John Ely, Marketing Manager for AMETEK Solidstate Controls. “With sizes ranging from 75kW up to 1MW and 6 MPPT inputs, the RECon 1000V offers commercial and utility PV integrators a full line of central inverters to accommodate any installation.”

The RECon 1000V is the industry’s first modular PV inverter with UL 1741 certification, which covers inverters, converters, charge controllers, and interconnection systems used in standalone (non-grid connected) and grid-connected power systems. UL certification is a widely recognized benchmark that ensures a particular product meets UL standards in terms of quality and performance.

The inverters are produced at FRIEM manufacturing facilities in Italy and sold by Solidstate Controls within the United States, Canada and Mexico. Based in Milan, FRIEM is a well-established manufacturer of high-power inverters, for which AMETEK Solidstate has exclusive North American distribution. Customers have come to rely on FRIEM for high-quality, high-performance products and on Solidstate Controls for its customer service, technical assistance and warranty.

It currently offers solar inverters for nearly all large commercial or utility-scale designs from its full double-conversion EPP models designed for off-grid applications to the all new RECon line of unmatched efficiency grid-tie units. All AMETEK inverters come with custom design assistance, global 24/7 field service and 30-year design life.
