February 10, 2020 GMT

YOKOHAMA-SHI, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 10, 2020--

SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. (“SolarEdge”) (NASDAQ: SEDG), a global leader in smart energy, announced today that its award-winning single phase inverter with HD-Wave technology received JET certification (Japan Electrical Safety and Environment Technology Laboratory). Specifically designed to comply with Japanese market requirements, the inverter is now available for low-voltage commercial and residential PV installations. The JET certification extends for five years and covers the new anti-islanding function requirements for multiple inverters and reactive power oscillation suppression.

With a long-term commitment to the Japanese market, SolarEdge has opened a technical and testing center in Yokohama that evaluates the grid protection function of SolarEdge inverters according to JEC9701 and JET certification test methods.

SolarEdge’s JET certified 5.5kW single phase inverter with HD-Wave technology has increased power density, record-breaking 99% weighted efficiency, and a competitively small size and weight, at only 12.3kg. The inverter has a 0.95 power factor, supports up to 200% oversizing for increased production, and features SolarEdge’s built-in SafeDC™ for enhanced safety.

“SolarEdge is dedicated to growing our footprint in the Japanese PV market and we aim to support the country in its local transition to solar energy by introducing innovative and safe PV solutions. As part of this effort, we are pleased to offer our JET-certified inverter with HD-Wave technology to the PV market in Japan,” stated Daniel Huber, SolarEdge’s Vice President and General Manager of Japan and Australia. “The opening of a new technical evaluation center will further this effort by enabling us to more quickly bring new solutions to market.”
