50KW Inverter for Commercial Solar Power Projects

Reliable and State of the Art

satcon powergate AE50 inverterThe Satcon PowerGate AE50 inverter offers market-leading reliability, efficiency and ease-of-use for large-scale grid-connected photovoltaic systems. This Satcom inverter is housed in a weatherproof enclosure.

The Powergate AE50 has a transformer with very high-efficiency. It also features both an AC and DC switchgear that will disconnect the inverter at night. This will minimize tare losses. A highly efficient MPPT tracking algorithm and intelligent wake-up routine further maximize the total energy production. The PowerGate AE50 is certified to UL-1741 and is available with different optional local and remote data monitoring components.
