For the new product, TMEIC realized a large capacity, which is the characteristic of the central type, and enhanced design flexibility and extensibility by modularizing it. Even if the modular PV inverter fails, properly-functioning modules continue to generate electricity, making it possible to minimize loss in power sales.

Also, for commercializing the modular PV inverter, TMEIC thoroughly reduced thickness and weight. Its footprint is 1.2m2 per module, which is 35% smaller than that of the previous model (per unit output). The weight of the new product is less than 1t and 40% lighter than that of the previous model. As a result, it can be carried on a small 2t truck.

TMEIC exhibited its products including the Solar Ware U (actual machine) at PV2019 Photovoltaic Solar Exhibition & Forum, a trade show that runs from July 10 to 12, 2019, at Pacifico Yokohama (Yokohama City).

TMEIC is currently practicing a campaign in collaboration with "Spider-Man: Far From Home" (movie) to enhance its brand image. And the new model exhibited at the show is a special model (not for sale) painted with an image of the latest Spider-Man movie.
