3000 W Grid-Tied Inverter

Magnetek AuroraLightweight and compact, Aurora inverters are user friendly and easy to operate. The PVI-3000-I-OUTD, designed for outdoor use, is robust and protected against the harshest weather conditions. The Aurora offers the following features:

  • Designed for maximum reliability and useful life
  • NEMA 4 (IP65) ruggedized, completely sealed unit to withstand the harshest environmental conditions
  • High speed MPPT for real time power tracking and improved energy harvesting
  • Compact size and high power density: 2500W (3000W max) of output power in a box just 16.5" x 12.83" x 9.13" (420mm x 326mm x 232mm)
  • Front heat sink keeps the unit cleaner and more efficient over time
  • Isolation with 60Hz high efficiency, low weight toroidal transformer for seamless grid-tied operation
  • Dual input section to process two strings with independent MPPT (3000W max models)
  • High overload capability: works up to 3000W under most ambient conditions
  • True Sine Wave output
  • Anti-islanding protection
  • UL 1741 certified grid connected operation
  • 2 line LCD display on the front to monitor the main parameters
  • Integrated RS485 serial link
  • Integrated Power Line Modem (PLM) for communication over AC wires
