APS Australian partner ZEN hits system monitoring milestone

APS partner ZEN Energy Systems of Australia recently passed a milestone 1,500 PV systems registered for EMA monitoring.
The Energy Monitoring & Analysis software allows remote analysis of PV systems outfitted with APS Microinverters.logo-systemsNetworked with the APS Communicator gateway, EMA relays the performance of individual PV modules to a database in real time. Performance analytics can then be accessed from any web-enabled device, allowing the system owner to monitor and optimize array output.ZEN Energy Systems was established in 2004 to develop innovative and sustainable energy technologies, and since that time has become one of Australia’s top renewable energy brands.

The company began installing APS Microinverters in its residential and commercial PV systems in March 2013, and is now one of APS’ biggest solar distribution partners.

Its largest installation to date is a 99kW array employing nearly 200 APS YC500 dual-module microinverters.

“We are glad to cooperate with APS for the technological precedence of the YC500,” said Richard Turner, ZEN Energy Systems CEO. “The microinverter system can really do an excellent job. Our clients are very satisfied with it. The quality and reliability of the products are quite good and are improved all the time.”

APS recently passed its own milestone of 10,000 PV systems worldwide registered for EMA monitoring.
