ACXIS® EN-240 for consumer applications
Permanently eliminate the time-consuming hunt for a viable envoy location
Eliminate Customer frustration, time-consuming and costly searches throughout your customer’s home for an acceptable Envoy location that allows only minimum communication strength between the Envoy and roof-mounted Microinverters due to line noise and other interference.
ELIMINATE INTERMITTENT SIGNAL LOSS BETWEEN THE Envoy AND MICROINVERTERS
Allowing the Envoy to be mounted as close to the Microinverters as possible, directly at the point of Branch Circuit interconnection, maximizes Power Line Communication (PLC) signal strength between the Envoy Communications Gateway™ and the Microinverters. This means maximum Envoy signal strength to “every” inverter, First Time - Every Time.
ELIMINATE “CROSS TALK” INTERFERENCE FROM OTHER PV SYSTEMS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
PV systems using PLC communication protocols in close proximity to each other can contaminate each system’s data collection and reporting capabilities. The included Ferrite Rings, properly installed, filter outside PLC communication devices from interfering with PLC communication inside the ACXIS® AC Combiner.
REDUCE TROUBLE SHOOTING TIME WITHTHE CHOICE OF EITHER PLC OR WIRELESS COMMUNICATION TO THE ROUTER
The ACXIS® AC combiner accommodates either Envoy Wireless or PLC bridge adaptor configurations allowing you to easily swap to the most effective router communication methods, avoiding costly troubleshooting time.
ELIMINATE UNPREDICTABLE POWER LINE COMMUNICATION (PLC) INTERFERENCE ISSUES
The included Ferrite Rings prevent regional line noise created from lighting ballasts, touch lamps, dimmers, ceiling fans, inductive loads, etc. from interfering with consistent PLC communication between the Microinverters and Envoy Communications Gateway.
REDUCE FRUSTRATING “ENVOY NOT REPORTING” EMAILS TO YOUR CUSTOMER AND TECH TEAM
Placing the Communication Gateway in a dedicated and secure location removes the possibility that a family member inadvertently unplugs or moves the Envoy to a power strip or location that prevents consistent and effective communication to the router or microinverters.
REDUCE LABOR COSTS THROUGH REDUCED INSTALL TIMES
The ACXIS® AC Combiner simplifies the interconnection and monitoring setup process, dramatically reducing installer time on site, allowing each PV installation to become a repeatable and predictable process.
DRAMATICALLY REDUCE THE TRAINING TIME REQUIRED FOR NEW INSTALLERS
Standardizing your interconnection and monitoring setup process allows you to standardize new installer training methods, reducing the time it takes to get productive installers in the field.
PERMANENTLY SOLVE RECURRING COMMUNICATION ISSUES ON “PAST” INSTALLS
Easily retrofittable, the ACXIS® AC Combiner can be integrated into troublesome PAST installations, effectively eliminating future truck rolls due to recurring communication or interconnection challenges.
ELIMINATE COSTLY TRUCK ROLLS DUE TO COMMUNICATION RELATED SERVICE CALLS
The ACXIS® AC Combiner can eliminate the vast majority of tech support truck rolls related to communication issues by filtering out, supply side and demand side line noise caused by home appliances, electronics and other conflicting PLC devices.
REDUCE TRUCK ROLLS DUE TO INTERCONNECTION & ELECTRICAL ISSUES
Customer viewable LED branch circuit current indicators, circuit breakers, surge trip indicator and exterior grid-up indicator light allow your service technician to work with the customer over the phone remotely, to diagnose many common causes of system downtime.
REDUCE DESIGN COMPLEXITY AND THE NEED FOR PRE-INSTALL SERVICE UPGRADES
Because the ACXIS® AC Combiner does NOT incorporate a common AC buss, PV designers can avoid over-current protection limitations that often require multiple PV load centers and other costly pre-install service upgrades. Install up to 100 Amps of PV Breakers in a single enclosure.
SAVE MONEY AND CUSTOMER WALL SPACE BY CONSOLIDATING INTERCONNECTION EQUIPMENT
All in one fiberglass construction includes the UL Certified AC Combiner with installed breakers, LED branch circuit current indicators, surge protection, dedicated Envoy® mounting and GFI power protection, exterior grid-up indicator light and other integrated features reduce the cost and space needed for additional interconnection equipment.
INSTALL UP TO 20kW AC WITH A SINGLE ACXIS® AC COMBINER
Each EN-240 can accommodate up to 5 Enphase branch circuits or approximately 20kW AC from a single ACXIS® AC Combiner.
INCREASE YOUR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE
Standardized Installation and Setup processes across all installation crews means less install errors, shorter more predictable install times and fewer service related truck rolls. Lower customer support costs lead to better margins and/or the ability to offer more competitive pricing. Happy customers generate more post-sale customer referrals.
