Magnetek 1MW E-Force Solar Inverter (Photo: Business Wire)

Magnetek, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAG) today announced that it has received ETL certification to the UL 1741-2010 and CSA C22.2 No. 107.1 standards for its 1 megawatt (MW) 1000 Volt solar inverter. The E-Force Solar Inverter was tested and certified by Intertek and is now qualified to display the ETL certification mark. The ETL mark indicates the E-Force Solar Inverter meets product safety requirements for connection to a United States or Canadian utility power grid or a grid in any country where UL and CSA standards are accepted.

Magnetek’s 1MW, air-cooled E-Force photovoltaic inverter is designed for grid-tied large solar applications, such as ground mount installations. E-Force PV-1000 integrates two 500kW inverters in a single enclosure which can reduce the skid footprint by as much as 30% compared with independent 500kW competitive inverters. E-Force units achieve peak and CEC efficiencies of 97.9% and 97% respectively with total current harmonic distortion of less than 5%.

“We are extremely pleased to be able to offer solar developers a 1 MW solar inverter ETL certified to UL and CSA standards,” said Peter McCormick, Magnetek’s chief executive officer. “We have made considerable investments in our solar inverter program and this certification is a significant step in our entry into the utility scale marketplace, where we see our greatest opportunity for growth in the renewable energy sector.”

Ed Butte, Magnetek’s director of renewable energy, added “Magnetek has been in the renewable energy business for nearly twenty years, and has shipped over 850MW of power conversion systems, including 700MW of the second generation E-Force power conditioning system for wind applications. The E-Force 1 MW solar inverter is based on our field-proven wind inverter platform. As a result we are confident this platform will provide the long service life solar customers seek, while its shelter-ready construction allows for faster installation at a lower cost.”
