Enphase IQ8 microinverter, compatible with 60 and 72 cell PV modules, 240V, 300VA peak power, Enphase Q Bulkhead Connector, IQ8PLUS-72-2-US
This newest line of IQ microinverters are the industry's first grid-forming microinverters with split-phase power conversion capability to convert DC power to AC power efficiently. The brain of the semiconductor-based microinverter is Enphase's proprietary application specific integrated circuit (ASIC); which enables the microinverter to operate in grid-tied or off-grid modes. This chip is built in advanced 55nm technology with high speed digital logic and has super fast response times to changing loads and grid events, alleviating constraints on battery sizing for home energy systems.
Part of the Enphase Energy System, the IQ8 series microinverters integrate with the Enphase IQ Battery, Enphase IQ Gateway, and the Enphase App monitoring and analysis software.
