Bentek Solar and Advanced Energy Partner to Deliver New Bundled Recombiner and Inverter Solution to Meet NEC 2011 Requirements

May 14, 2014

Bentek Solar, a leading manufacturer of a broad range of products connecting photovoltaic (PV) panels to inverters for residential, commercial and utility-scale marketplaces worldwide, today announced its partnership with Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:AEIS). Under the agreement, Advanced Energy will offer a Bentek bipolar circuit breaker recombiner with the Advanced Energy 500NX inverter to meet NEC 2011 code requirements.

Bentek has been shipping the bipolar circuit breaker recombiner into the marketplace in support of Advanced Energy inverters for more than two years and is known as the leader in circuit breaker recombiner solutions,” said John H. Buckley, executive sales and marketing for Bentek Solar. “This new partnership with Advanced Energy provides a one-stop solution to meet NEC 2011 code requirements in a simple, cost-effective and convenient manner for our mutual customers.”

The AE 500NX-600V inverter has a true 97.5 to 98 percent weighted efficiency without carve-outs for auxiliary power or other adjustments, enabling a greater and quicker return on investment. With fleet availability in excess of 99 percent and AE’s extensive O&M service protecting investments over the course of the lifetime of a system, energy harvest also is maximized.

"We’re proud to have been selected as the inverter partner of choice for Bentek Solar’s bipolar circuit breaker recombiner, especially given the company’s expertise in the recombiner market segment,” said Steve Levy, Advanced Energy vice president of Americas’ sales. “This bundled package offers developers and system owners a streamlined solution that will deliver the performance, durability and reliability necessary for long-term return on investment.”
