SAN FRANCISCO, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL) (" Trina Solar" or "the Company"), a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic products from the production of ingots, wafers and cells to the assembly of PV modules, announced the availability of its newest line of high performance solutions – Trinasmart. Trinasmart combines the Company's award-winning high performance modules with new maximizer and monitoring technology to deliver a comprehensive solution to maximize roof space and overall power output, resulting in better project economics for customers and installers alike.
Trinasmart continues the Company's commitment to provide better solutions for Trina Solar partners. The Trinasmart Maximizer uses built-in technology to accurately and quickly find the exact optimal operating point of each module and prevents shading issues from diminishing the output of other modules with its "Impedance Matching" technology. This innovation results in up to 20 percent higher power output for arrays impacted by shading and up to 8 percent higher output for "perfect" installations. Additionally, the Trinasmart Maximizer allows for varying string lengths and roof angles, enabling installers to maximize roof coverage.
"Trinasmart furthers Trina Solar's commitment to providing an end-to-end solar solution for our customers," said Mark Kingsley, Trina Solar's Chief Commercial Officer. "When our customers choose Trina Solar, they get more than high-performing panels, they get a partner that lowers the overall cost of going solar while increasing their profits."
In addition to increased output, Trinasmart offers better monitoring and safety as well. The Trinasmart solution allows system owners to monitor system performance at the module level, track historical data and compile important system information via computer, mobile phone or tablet PC. Users can receive weekly or monthly reports as well as monitor their system online. Additionally, Trinasmart improves module safety by shutting down modules automatically in case of electrical failure (e.g. flashing arc) and allowing modules to be turned off remotely.
