Microinverter Benefits to the Installer
Improved Safety
Darfon microinverters meet rapid shutdown requirements and connect to standard AC trunk cabling, eliminating the need of high voltage DC wiring that can carry up to 600V even without grid connection.
System Design Flexibility
There is high degree of flexibility in designing and sizing PV systems when using Darfon microinverters. A 30A branch circuit can have up to 23 MIG300s or 19 G320s installed. Even cabling type to be installed with the G320 microinverter can be decided by the installer.
Simplified Installation
Darfon microinverters use standard AC trunk cabling that is easy to install and connect. The G320 and MIG300 have integrated grounding so there is no need for GEC. Darfon’s ACRak takes it a step further by pre-installing microinverters and AC cabling onto precut rails, making installation a snap.
Cloud-Based Monitoring System
Darfon microinverters are auto-detected by the system, making setup on the cloud monitoring portal simple. The monitoring system provides data for each inverter/panel, which makes it easier to locate potential issues and is accessible through a web portal, as well as, Android® and iOS® mobile apps.

H SERIES HYBRID STORAGE SYSTEM
H100 BATTERY SPECIFICATION – LEAD ACID
H200 BATTERY SPECIFICATION – LFP

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.
