Solar power Design a sustainable energy supply
Solar power is essential for renewable power generation. Decreasing system costs mean that photovoltaic power generation systems are attractive not only from an ecological perspective. They are also extremely competitive from an economic point of view when compared with conventional power generation systems.
Phoenix Contact is your expert partner for the optimum and reliable operation of photovoltaic systems. From ground-mounted systems and rooftop systems to hybrid energy systems, we always provide the right solution.
“Power generation with solar systems is now competitive without subsidization in many countries. For a significant proportion of total power generation, safe operation and controlled solar power feed-in to the power supply network are key. Phoenix Contact provides solutions based on industrial standards for environmentally friendly, economically efficient energy supply.”
Solutions for solar power
Phoenix Contact offers you inspirational industrial solutions for all aspects of photovoltaics.
Park management Technology from a competent source
Photovoltaics make a major contribution to meeting our continually rising energy requirements. Interest in building increasingly larger and more powerful ground-mounted photovoltaic systems is on the increase worldwide. Networking, monitoring, and communication are indispensable in this regard, particularly in relation to constant network quality and maintenance in line with requirements.
Operating large PV systems requires continuous monitoring and control on the segment level. Reliable monitoring products keep you informed of the state of your photovoltaic system at all times, enabling you to respond immediately to ensure maximum yield.
Rooftop systems Make a profit on your roof
Large, slightly slanted roof surface areas provide ideal conditions for the profitable deployment of photovoltaic systems. As a result of declining module prices and increasing energy costs, photovoltaic systems on private, commercial, and public buildings are becoming increasingly attractive, even without state subsidies.
To monitor the installations and provide lasting protection against lightning currents and overvoltages of all kinds, Phoenix Contact offers a wide range of products for roof-mounted photovoltaic systems. For the maximum degree of safety in the event of danger or maintenance, individual panels can be de-energized. Micro inverters are a great alternative for less-than-optimal roof surfaces. The new connection system for micro inverters is suitable for universal use and is particularly user-friendly.
Hybrid energy systems For challenging conditions
A total of 1.2 billion people worldwide have no access to electricity. As a result, diesel generators are used in many locations to produce the necessary, independent source of energy. However, the price of the fuel for diesel generators is continuously rising. The use of hybrid photovoltaic systems not only reduces this financial burden, it also lowers CO2-emissions in a sustainable manner. In rural regions without a local power grid and in developing and emerging countries, hybrid photovoltaic systems are a cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly alternative for generating electricity far from corresponding grids.
Hybrid photovoltaic systems are frequently installed under extreme climatic conditions. Therefore, along with the power generation units, the accumulator, and the inverter, the devices required for controlling and regulating these units must also be able to withstand the harsh ambient conditions. The solutions and components from Phoenix Contact meet these requirements ideally.
Phoenix Contact offers innovative products and solutions for all aspects of photovoltaic power generation. These solutions are based on a wide range of industrially-tested connection and automation technology. When intelligently combined, these products become systems for a variety of functions such as control, remote monitoring, or measured value acquisition.
