Pika Islanding Inverter

X7600 and X11400 series Islanding Inverter – Pika Energy Island Compatible™


The single-inverter solution for grid-interactive islanding performance

Solar-plus-storage is simple with the Pika Islanding Inverter. This bi-directional, battery-ready inverter uses auxiliary grid sensing to perform transformerless islanding for clean backup power. With integrated DC breakers for PV and batteries, installations are simpler and far more efficient than AC-coupled or conventional DC-coupled designs. Ideal for self-consumption and ready for grid services like demand response, the U.S.-made Pika Islanding Inverter is our most powerful, flexible inverter yet.

Applications


  • Pika Islanding Inverter - InstalledConventional grid-tie – Planning to add a smart battery later? The Pika Islanding Inverter operates as a conventional, grid-tie inverter in the meantime. And when you do add a Pika-compatible smart battery, you won’t need any additional battery inverters or autotransformers.
  • Battery backup – Add a smart battery to back up critical loads using the Pika Islanding Inverter’s internal, automatic transfer switches.
  • Self-supply – Attain energy independence with balanced self-consumption of stored solar energy.
  • Advanced DC nanogrids – Power high performance DC loads using the bi-directional REbus DC nanogrid.
  • Commercial three-phase power – Reduce commercial demand charges with the 208VAC three-phase X11400 series.

Advantages


  • Simplicity – The Pika Islanding Inverter is a single device for connecting energy sources, storage, loads, and the grid.
  • Direct integration with smart batteries – Connect a Pika-compatible smart battery directly to the Pika Islanding Inverter without needing an additional battery inverter or separate interface hardware.
  • Critical loads – Support 120/240V critical loads with no external autotransformer required, even with three-phase models.
  • Self-configuring – Like all REbus™-powered products, the Pika Islanding Inverter is self-configuring and automatically discovers connected REbus devices such as Pika PV Link™ and Pika-compatible smart batteries.
  • Operational modes – The Pika Islanding Inverter features selectable modes for Grid Connect, Self Supply, Clean Backup and Priority Backup.
