PowerOne Aurora Uno PVI 5kW, 208/240/277VAC, 60Hz, 1-ph Inverter

Power One Aurora Uno PVI-5000-OUTD-US

High-Efficiency 5kW Inverters.

Aurora® grid-tie transformerless inverters offer a unique combination of ultra-high efficiencies, installer-friendly designs, long service life, and competitive initial acquisition costs; significantly increasing return on investment in solar-power installations.

Industry-Leading Features and Performance

  • High efficiencies deliver more energy – up to 97% (96,5 CEC).
  • Two inputs with independent MPPTs, optimize power from multiple arrays oriented in different directions.
  • Compact size and high power density: 6000W max of output power in a box just 38 5/8” x 12 13/16 x 7 11/16”

Field-Proven Reliability

  • IP65 (NEMA 4) rated enclosure withstands the harshest environmental conditions.
  • Front-mounted heat sink resists contamination, enhancing cooling and increasing reliability and long-term efficiency.
  • Grid-connected operation according to international standards, UL1741/IEEE1547 & CSA-C22.2 N.107.1-01
  • Ten-year warranty, optionally extendable to fifteen and twenty years.

Installer Friendly

  • Reverse-polarity protection minimizes potential damage caused by miswiring during installation.
  • Front-panel mounted LCD display provides real-time updates for all critical operating parameters.
  • RS-485 and USB communications interfaces.
  • Integrated DC switch available in compliance with NEC Standard, Article 690 “Solar Photovoltaic System” (USA)
  • Anti-islanding protection

Unmatched Applications Flexibility

  • Models available with 90 to 530 volt operating windows
  • Independent inputs, with high-speed MPPTs, optimize the energy available from multiple arrays with different orientations and tilt angles, and an unequal number of strings per array
  • Selected inverters feature an internal fan for extended ambient temperature operation
