Designed for maximum technical and economical efficiency: the blueplanet 50.0 TL3.

Neckarsulm, 15 March 2016 – More than ever, when constructing new systems it's all about bringing installation work, stable performance and costs down to a common denominator. With the blueplanet 50.0 TL3 INT, KACO new energy solves this equation in an elegant fashion: the right device for anyone looking for an inverter with particular strengths in commercial and industrial grade solar power plants.

The PV sector has essentially almost achieved its aim: Photovoltaics is now virtually" a business like any other". The flipside of this success is: Photovoltaics is now virtually "a business like any other". Project rights are now only issued under "best conditions", construction needs to be completed in record time, all with 100 percent reliability. In response to this, KACO new energy is now offering the blueplanet 50.0 TL3 INT, an inverter for the real world. Designed for maximum technical and economical efficiency, it can be used to plan and run solar power stations at an optimised total cost of ownership (TCO). All its features translate directly into customer benefits; price-driving special features have been consciously avoided.

Three versions provide the perfect fit for any cost strategy in terms of safety and cabling:

- The basic version offers all the essentials when installing string collectors and overvoltage protection externally.
- The M version is to be recommended when using external string collectors, DC and AC overvoltage protection is available as a convenient plug-and-play solution.
- The XL version includes string collectors, DC overvoltage protection type 1 + 2 and the operation-ready AC overvoltage protection of the M version.

The compact, wall-mounted 50 kVA device weighs in at just 71 kilograms, is easily transported and comparatively comfortable to hang up and take down. With its 1,100 Volt input voltage on 10 inputs, this blueplanet provides high DC design flexibility, and installation work is minimised. With the XL version, the DC cabling is especially quick thanks to Sunclix plug-in connectors from Phoenix Contact. On the AC side, the connection cross-section has been enlarged to 95 mm² so that common but bigger copper cables can be connected or alternatively, the more cost-effective and lighter weight aluminium sector cables. At any rate, the energy transfer is optimised to give the significant European efficiency level of over 98 % full impact in the grid.

The housing made from durable aluminium, with IP65 protection rating, is ideal for outdoor applications and installations. An ingenious data logger with web server, USB port for updates, as well as a graphics display, facilitates effortless communication.

In combination with the Powador-protect from KACO new energy, which already includes a ripple control receiver connection, complete management of up to 31 inverters is provided. The Powador-protect actuates the internal coupler circuit breakers on the blueplanet 50.0 TL3 INT, eliminating the costs of external contactors and their operation, or, of sub-distribution units! This simplifies the calculations for PV projects and facilitates integration of the array into feed-in management systems.

Whether for homogeneously designed large building roofs through to solar parks, when it comes to photovoltaics on the commercial and industrial scale, the no-nonsense approach of the blueplanet 50.0 TL3 INT provides the economic basis for cost-effective operation and reliable maximum yields. Taken as a whole, its features provide a package that Ralf Hofmann, Managing Director of KACO new energy, describes as follows: "I think this product has the potential to be a real game-changer. The 'decentral design of PV' with optimum TCO could not be covered with any greater degree of compactness or economy."
