SolarEdge has been manufacturing and shipping string inverters and power optimizers for over a decade. With a focus on continuous improvement, the California-based company has provided Rapid Shutdown compliant power optimizers in conjunction with the fast adoption of NEC guidelines by state and local agencies.

These solar power optimizers monitor the performance of each module and communicate performance data to the SolarEdge monitoring platform for long term reliable operation as well as quick and cost-effective solar module-level maintenance. All current models of SolarEdge Power Optimizers that mate with SolarEdge Power Inverters will meet the most current requirements for Rapid Shutdown safety and are UL certified to verify. The unique SafeDC™ feature is designed to automatically reduce modules’ DC voltage to a safe level whenever the inverter or grid power is shut down (unless connected to a StorEdge™ Inverter that is operating in backup mode).

SafeDC capability is designed to work perfectly with the new generation compact HD wave residential inverter, designed with advanced features and made with high quality long lasting components such as ceramic thin-film capacitors and silicon switches.
