Microinverters have long been a go-to in residential solar arrays for how they simplify installation, provide panel-level monitoring and shade mitigation, and meet rapid-shutdown code requirements. But can they have the same impact in the commercial sector? APsystems’ Senior Director of Marketing USA, Jason Higginson, sat down with Solar Builder magazine on The Pitch to answer that question. Discussing APsystems’ quad microinverter, the QT2, he busted common myths about microinverters in commercial arrays, including their cost, power output, and points of failure. (Spoiler alert: the QT2 comes out on top!)
APsystems introduces the EMA Manager app, a new app to manage APsystems microinverter system commissioning, monitoring and troubleshooting.
Installers can now enhance their customers service capabilities anywhere, anytime via their smartphone or tablet. This app conveniently streamlines monitored system installation while providing installers with many new and improved features for remote site management.
Benefit from all existing features available in the EMA web portal on your smartphone or tablet using a single sign-in. Real-time systems check, diagnostics capabilities and troubleshooting are now coming to your hands with the EMA Manager App. This new app, available on Google Play and APP Store which also includes a revamped ECU_APP, provides additional features including, ECU and microinverter connectivity, energy production, system troubleshooting, and full site configuration and monitoring capability without the need to be on-site.
Included in the new app are installer-specific statistics, including total number of customers, inverters installed, and total energy produced which provides installers with valuable information as well as a unique selling tool to showcase their environmental impact.
The new app is being introduced as APsystems has recently surpassed 100,000 registered installations in more than 120 countries on its EMA platform. As APsystems’ footprint continues to grow worldwide, this app redefines ease of solar inverter installation just as APsystems has redefined simplicity and convenience in its easy-to-install inverter platform.

From system setup to performance tracking, a robust monitoring package is essential to installers and end users alike.
The Energy Communication Unit and EMA software from APsystems offer this powerful but easy-to-use monitoring and analysis at every step.
Chris Barrett, APsystems USA director of technical services, demonstrated our advanced user interface at this year’s Solar Power International North America show, and you can see the video now.
Find out how installers can pre-configure the ECU-4 gateway with microinverter serial numbers for plug-and-power at the job site, and how customers can easily track their array’s performance in real time from their computer or device.
