What makes SolarEdge different?
When solar systems from any others typical “string line” inverters, modules are connected together in a series string until the voltage meets a predefined window; then, the power from the string as a whole is stepped up or down to an appropriate voltage and then inverted to form AC electricity.
In a DC optimized system, the MPPT tracking is done on a module level with a “power optimizer”. These power optimizers takes power from the panel, at its ideal operating point, and then adjusts the voltage and current in a way that delivers the most power from the system as a whole.
The SolarEdge power optimizer is a DC/DC converter which is connected by installers to each PV module or embedded by module manufacturers, replacing the traditional solar junction box. The SolarEdge power optimizers increase energy output from PV systems by constantly tracking the maximum power point (MPPT) of each module individually. Furthermore, the power optimizers monitor the performance of each module and communicate performance data to the SolarEdge monitoring portal for enhanced, cost-effective module-level maintenance. Each power optimizer is equipped with the unique SafeDC™ feature which automatically shuts down modules’ DC voltage whenever the inverter or grid power is shut down.
The MPPT per module allows for flexible installation design with multiple orientations, tilts and module types in the same string. When working with SolarEdge Inverters, SolarEdge power optimizers automatically maintain a fixed string voltage, allowing installers even greater flexibility with longer strings and strings of different lengths in order to design optimal PV systems. Alternatively, the new independent optimization (IndOP™) technology allows power optimizers to be installed without the need for additional interface hardware and to operate directly with any inverter. The SolarEdge power optimizers are compatible with c-Si and thin-film modules and have a 25 year warranty.
Solar Edge Power Optimizers
Solar Edge offers several models of it’s power optimizer, in order to accommodate a variety of PV modules (including 72 and 90 cell modules). Solar Edge OP Power Optimizers allow for between 8 and 25 modules in a given string; they also allow for strings of uneven length to be connected in parallel. This is because the optimizers strive to provide the inverter a constant string voltage, regardless of the voltage of the individual modules.
Solar Edge OPA Power Optimizers
Solar Edge’s newest model of power optimizer, the OPA series, is capable of all of the features of it’s predecessor and so much more! The OPA Series is uniquely able to operate independent of a solar edge inverter, which means that they can be used with any string-line inverter. They are smaller, lighter, and can operate on a broader temperature range (-40 to 185 Degrees Fahrenheit) than its predecessor, and is all contained within a NEMA 6 enclosure.

Solar Edge Systems Feature:
- Superior efficiency (>97%)
- Excellent reliability with standard 12 year warranty (extendable to 20 or 25 years)
- Small, lightweight and easy to install

Solar Edge Inverters: SE3000A-US, SE3800A-US, SE5000A-US, SE6000A-US, SE7000A-US
The SolarEdge DC – AC PV inverter is specifically designed to work with the SolarEdge power optimizers. Because MPPT and voltage management are handled separately for each module by the power optimizer, the inverter is only responsible for DC to AC inversion. Consequently, it is a less complicated, more cost effective, more reliable solar inverter with a standard 12 year warranty, extendable to 20 or 25 years. The fixed string voltage ensures operation at the highest efficiency at all times (>97% weighted efficiency) independent of string length and temperature.
Warranty Information: SolarEdge includes a standard 12 year warranty for inverters, extendable to 20 or 25 years. We manage a rapid RMA process and guarantee a replacement unit shipped within 48 hours at no cost, given the reported defect is eligible for coverage under the Limited Product Warranty.
The warranty extension is available with a one-time payment fee and must be activated within 12 months of inverter purchase from SolarEdge. Please see the below table for warranty extension fees:
Solar Edge Monitoring Portal
Module-level, string-level and system-wide PV monitoring is enabled by the SolarEdge power optimizer. Performance of each and every PV module is measured and communicated across existing power lines in order to maximize solar power harvesting at all times and reduce maintenance cost and time.
The SolarEdge module level and inverter web based monitoring is free for 25 years.
The free basic service includes:
- Inverter and module level real–time monitoring, including performance visualization: layout, playback, charts
- 10 minute resolution data of both inverter and power optimizers. The high resolution data is stored for 12 months.
- Lifetime historical data, aggregated daily.
- Monitoring portal access by mobile devices (smartphones and tablets)
The SolarEdge module monitoring portal allows for enhanced maintenance and yield assurance through module-level performance monitoring, fault detection and automatic alerts localized on a virtual site map for accurate troubleshooting. The monitoring web-based portal can be accessed from any browser or from any Android or iOS (Apple) smart-phone or tablet using the Opera Mobile or Firefox web browsers.
- Tracks technical and financial performance of one or more SolarEdge PV systems
- Enables logical and physical PV site visualization with real-time performance data for each individual module and for the whole system
- Presents historical and aggregated data, comparative analysis diagnostics and a guided root-cause fault analysis. All data is logged and can be securely reviewed and analyzed at any time from any location

Solar Edge Whitepapers
While it may seem like dc optimized systems are essentially the same as micro-inverter systems, there are in fact some key differences.
Power Optimizers are…
- Less expensive, and become even more cost effective as jobs scale
- Functional over a more broad range of operating voltages
- More efficient, and thus dissipate less heat
- More reliable, due to heat dissipation and component quality
