The inverter installation must comply with the following requirements.

  • The inverter must be mounted at least 36 inches (91.5cm) above the ground. The installation location must be suitable for the inverter’s weight and dimensions over the course of its life.
  • Select a wall or solid vertical surface that can support the inverter.
  • Select an installation location in which the LED display will be easily viewed.
  • Select a well-ventilated location sheltered from direct sunlight and rain. Do not install in cabinets. Good ventilation ensures the heat will adequately escape. The ambient temperature should be below 40°C for optimal operation.  
  • Do not install the inverter on structures constructed of highly flammable materials.
  • The humidity at the installation location must be 0-100% without condensation.
  • The installation location shall always be accessible.
  • Mount the inverter vertically or tilted back no more than 15°. Never install horizontal, tilting forward, sideways or facing upside down.

  • Ensure the inverter is out of reach of children.
  • Do not cover or place items on the inverter.
  • Do not install in locations with strong electromechanical interference, and away from any antennas.

The minimum clearances shown below must be observed.

Figure 12 Single inverter clearance requirements
Figure 13 Multi-inverter clearance requirements
  • Sufficient clearance between individual inverters is required to ensure the warm air dissipating from one inverter does not increase the operating temperature of adjacent inverters. If necessary, increase the clearance space between inverters to ensure sufficient cooling.
  • Do not install inverter in direct sun, rain, or snow.
