KOSTAL PIKO Inverters fam­ily is com­plete

The completion of the PIKO family has been concluded with the introduction of the smaller sizes PIKO 4.2 to PIKO 8.5. The product portfolio of KOSTAL Solar Electric, is now available in the innovative garb of the new inverter generation.These four three-phase devices also fit in with the “all-in-one” concept, which stands for a high degree of flexibility, comprehensive communications equipment and a high level of practicality.

The new gen­er­a­tion of PIKO in­vert­ers of­fers even more flexible pos­si­bil­i­ties for us­age. Thanks to the broad in­put volt­age range of the PIKO, the PV mod­ules of the sys­tem can be con­nected flex­i­bly, which en­ables the for­ma­tion of dif­fer­ing string lengths. In or­der that PV sys­tems can func­tion op­ti­mally on the most var­ied roof sur­faces, the PIKO 4.2 to 8.5 are equipped with up to 2 MPP track­ers. At the same time, the most var­ied mod­ule types can be se­lected for the PV sys­tem; the PIKO meets high cur­rent re­quire­ments and is thus also equipped for high-per­for­mance mod­ules. Thanks to the con­nectable three-phase cur­rent sen­sor, the PIKO BA Sen­sor, op­ti­mal self-con­sump­tion can be achieved. The sen­sor reg­u­lates the power at the feed-in point into the pub­lic grid and si­mul­ta­ne­ously mea­sures build­ing con­sump­tion. This en­sures that a max­i­mum of pro­duced so­lar en­ergy is used in the build­ing.

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess­ful com­mis­sion­ing and con­fig­u­ra­tion of the PIKO, you can very com­fort­ably mon­i­tor your PV sys­tem via the PIKO So­lar Por­tal or the PIKO So­lar App, which is now avail­able for An­droid and for iOS op­er­at­ing sys­tems. The record­ing of the in­di­vid­ual units of in­for­ma­tion of the PV sys­tem is also pos­si­ble di­rectly through the in­verter dis­play via three ca­pac­i­tive but­tons. The in­vest­ment in a PV sys­tem is thus well-pro­tected. The PIKO in­vert­ers are Smart Home and EE­Bus-com­pat­i­ble, which en­ables di­rect net­work­ing with other house­hold de­vices. The EE­Bus net­work­ing tech­nol­ogy is be­ing pro­moted and vig­or­ously es­tab­lished on the mar­ket by a net­work of well-known elec­tron­ics man­u­fac­tur­ers, of which KOSTAL is of course also a mem­ber. One es­pe­cially ad­van­ta­geous fea­ture of the new PIKO in­verter gen­er­a­tion is the “all-in-one” con­cept: when plan­ning the PV sys­tem, no ad­di­tional com­po­nents need be con­sid­ered. Every­thing needed is al­ready in the PIKO.

The in­verter demon­strates a high level of prac­ti­cal­ity through its low weight, which en­ables in­stal­la­tion that saves time and en­ergy. The han­dling of the de­vices is also made even eas­ier by the new re­cessed grips on the sides. If you wish to still make changes fol­low­ing in­stal­la­tion of the PIKO, this is very eas­ily pos­si­ble thanks to the ac­ces­si­ble and pro­tected con­nec­tion area.

With the new PIKO in­verter gen­er­a­tion, KOSTAL has ex­panded the prod­uct range with­out hav­ing to dis­pense with the fa­mil­iar and proven ad­van­tages of the “all-in-one” con­cept.
