Darfon Solar announces release H Series Hybrid Storage System

Mountain View, California. – April 3, 2017 World Technology’s leading partner -Darfon Solar (Darfon), a manufacturer of next-generation single port, G320 microinverters, and the manufacturer of the H5000 hybrid inverters ongrid-offgrid charge controller inverter, announced today that it has released the new H Series Hybrid Storage Systems.

The H Series Hybrid Storage Systems integrate hybrid inverter, control panel, display panel, communication board and batteries into sturdy industrial racking enclosures. The H Series feature true hybrid designs where power sharing is possible with various power sources for a wide variety of applications. Conventional backup power supplies, like uninterrupted power supply, cannot handle solar power directly, and conventional solar inverters cannot directly store energy into batteries. Darfon’s advanced hybrid storage systems solve both problems in one integrated package with direct solar DC input in conjunction with AC charging capabilities.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Essential load circuits are connected to Darfon’s hybrid storage system. Power from solar panels, batteries and the utility are intelligently controlled by the system to supply power to the essential loads.
• The Darfon H5000 features a true hybrid design with power sharing between various power sources. This hybrid inverter prioritizes the energy flow and direction from the batteries, PV modules and utility. The H5000 also comes with system monitoring and generator support. It was designed to accommodate both wall or rack mounting options. The H5000 Hybrid Inverter supports a wide range of applications, including off-grid, self-use, net-metering, backup and time-of-use optimization.
