The Phocos Any-Grid PSW-H inverter-charger series are pure-sinewave hybrid inverters that span the gap between battery-less grid-tie inverters and off-grid inverters. The Phocos Any-Grid inverter can be set up to convert solar PV into grid AC, and feed into the grid, batteries can be added so the inverter continues to work when the grid goes down and runs in off-grid mode, or the Any-Grid inverter can be set up to provide AC with just solar panels (no grid and no batteries). The Any-Grid inverter can also be set up as a stand-by system that provides power to loads from the grid or solar PV (priority is your choice), without exporting to the grid, and it can provide back-up power when the grid goes down. This inverter is very versatile!
The unit has a build-in transfer switch that allows for switching from grid-tie to off-grid mode in less than 10ms, making the ideal Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS). This is fast enough to prevent computers from noticing or resetting.
Since solar can be prioritized, and batteries can be added, the Any-Grid inverter can be used to do load-displacement (charge during low-cost hours from the grid, then use that during peak-cost hours) and load-shaving (use primarily solar PV as a source of power, to offset grid AC use).
Build into the inverter is an MPPT charger that allows for high-Voltage strings of solar panels (up to 250 Volt DC). It can charge batteries from solar PV or export the power to grid AC. As mentioned it can also provide a local (offline) AC grid, even without batteries, providing power to loads as long as there is sufficient sunlight.
Up to 9 inverters can be connected in parallel, to provide a single-phase AC system, 240V split-phase AC, or 3-phase 208V AC system. Connecting inverters in parallel is as simply as connecting them together!
Please note that this inverter is not UL- or CSA-listed.
