PROOF INVERTER FOR S
The Fronius Galvo inverter uses innovative technologies to deliver a future
proof solution. It is a single
electrically isolated inverter available in power categories from 1.5 to 3.1 kW (
1.5 kW, 2 kW, 2.5 kW, 3.0 kW and 3.
). By specifically targeting the lower power categories, it allows a high proportion of self
other words, as much of the energy generated as possible is consumed at source. The built
management relay enables consumers (heat pu
mp, boiler, etc.) to be controlled; self
consumption is further
improved and energy costs reduced.
It offers great configuration flexibility, which makes it ideal for private homes and small PV systems. An
integrated energy management function makes it pa
rticularly suitable for self
consumption systems. It will be
possible to use this device all over the world.
in card technology allows functions to be retrofitted at a later date. This means that future upgrades can be
carried out quickly and easily. The Fronius Galvo offers static and dynamic grid backup through reactive power
provision even in low power ca
tegories. Here too, Fronius delivers quality beyond the required standards, since
reactive power provision is not currently stipulated for inverters in these power categories. The inverter also
party interfaces, thus allowing connection with
home automation systems, and is compatible with
remote monitoring systems.
WLAN function ensures high flexibility
The Fronius Galvo and Fronius Symo inverters are amongst the first to offer a built
standard. If no cable is to be inst
alled or if cable installation is not possible, then the system data can be
downloaded via WLAN using a smartphone (Fronius Solar.web app) or a PC (Fronius Solar.web).
Simultaneous updating of multiple inverters
The Fronius Galvo will in future feature a
BUS master function
This will allow multiple inverters to be updated
simultaneously. In addition, one inverter can log the data of all the other inverters.
Fronius inverters are Smart Grid
Firstly, this means that Fronius inverters boast built
in smart functions, called Advanced Grid Features (AGF).
These involve various control functions for reactive power and effective power. The aim is to be able to
integrate more PV systems into the grid. Secondly, voltage
dependent power manipulation in p
eriods of grid
overload should prevent the inverter from switching off. This relieves the load on the grid and, at the same time,
safeguards the yield.
In addition to the functions of the inverter itself, the option of integration in a Smart Grid means t
hat the inverters
are not only integrated in the grid but also in the information infrastructure of the future. Fronius inverters
provide the necessary interfaces required for integration in the Smart Grid and enable remote configuration of
all smart funct
ions to ensure optimal operation in a future with a large number of PV systems.
This means that Fronius inverters already satisfy the requirements that will be placed on PV systems in the
Innovative hinged system
Innovative product features such
as the hinged system make installation and servicing easy, thereby keeping
installation and operating costs down. The DC disconnector in the connection area makes the Fronius Galvo
one of the most user
friendly and safest inverters on the market.
tion is due to start in July 2013
The Fronius Galvo inverter is particularly suitable for self
systems thanks to its low power categories and integrated energy
Innovative product features, such as the hinged system, make installation and
servicing of the Fronius Galvo inverter very simple and cost
