The APS YC1000, our groundbreaking 277/480 3-phase microinverter

APS will showcase our new YC1000 microinverter for the domestic market at Solar Power International, Oct. 20-23 in Las Vegas.

The YC1000 is the industry's first true 3-phase solar microinverter, handling 277/480 grid voltages with 900 watts maximum output, ZigBee communication and an integrated ground.

Up to 11 units (44 modules total, 60- or 72-cell) can be linked in a single 15A circuit.

The groundbreaking unit is offered at a price point competitive with conventional "string" inverters, and is now available through the APS network of distributors and installers. Contact for information.   


"The YC1000 is an innovative technology leap," says Paul Barlock, APS America senior vice president. "With native 3-phase capability in a microinverter package, large-scale commercial customers now have a significantly better solution for distributed rooftop solar. The YC1000 is a game changer."



Handling up to four PV modules per unit, the YC1000 microinverter offers 3-phase AC distribution designed to meet demanding commercial applications.

Its proprietary, chip-based architecture was conceived and designed in the USA by APS engineers. Domestic rollout follows rigorous, successful testing in large solar installations overseas.

APS will showcase the YC1000 at booth no. 3124 at the SPI conference.
