Xantrex GT 5.0 Solar InverterThe Xantrex GT 5.0
Grid Tie Solar Inverter

The GT 5.0 offers best-in-class efficiency and the best price to-performance ratio in the industry. The result is a high performance inverter that makes utility interactive installations easier and more cost effective. This high performance photovoltaic string inverter offers high efficiency, clean aesthetics, high reliability as well as lower installed cost.

Product Benefits:

  • Proven high frequency design in a compact enclosure
  • 95.5% (CEC listed) 94% peak efficiency maximizes energy harvest
  • Fast MPPT tracking algorithm ensures maximum energy harvest from the array under any conditions
  • Excellent thermal performance
  • FCC Part B compliance means less potential interference with communication, radio, and consumer electronics
  • 5-year standard warranty (10-year extended warranty available)
  • Sealed inverter enclosure can be separated from the wiring box allowing DC/AC connections to remain intact in the unlikely event that the inverter needs to be serviced
  • A lightweight and versatile mounting bracket simplifies installation

Product Applications:

  • An inverter is required when you want to power AC devices.
  • The inverter converts the DC power from the solar array/batteries into AC power.

Product Features:

  • Free PC software for remote monitoring and system
  • troubleshooting available online
  • Bright LED indicators provide system status at a glance
  • Integrated DC/AC disconnect that is NEC compliant to eliminate the need for external DC (PV)
  • The modular design allows inverters to be mounted side-by-side, using each wiring box as a wiring raceway
  • Rugged NEMA 3R inverter enclosure allows reliable outdoor and indoor installations
  • Large heat sink offers extraordinary heat dispersion without the need for a cooling fan
  • Backlit, two-line, 16-character liquid crystal display (LCD) indicates instantaneous power, daily and lifetime energy production, photovoltaic array voltage and current, utility voltage and frequency, time online “selling” today,fault messages.
  • Installer customizable screens
  • LCD vibration sensor allows the tap of a finger to turn backlight on
    and display screen cycling
  • Integrated RS232 and Xanbus RJ45 communication ports

Product Warranty:

  • 10 Year Standard Manufacturer Warranty
