SolarEdge Home Gateway Kit

The SolarEdge home gateway kit uses the ZigBee network to wirelessly connect any SolarEdge inverter to the internet through the homeowner’s router.
The home gateway sits next to the router and can transmit and receive signals from as many as 15 inverters. Going wireless simplifies the installation greatly by eliminating the need to install a hardwire cable to the inverter - no more squeezing into crawlspaces or navigating cramped attics and no more drilling through walls. 

SolarEdge Control and Communication Gateway

The SolarEdge Control and Communication Gateway expands the SolarEdge monitoring and control capabilities. It can connect to SolarEdge and non-SolarEdge inverters, environmental sensors and meters and can transfer the monitoring data to the SolarEdge monitoring server and optionally, to a non-SolarEdge logger.

The Control and Communication Gateway has an interface that allows for controlling of the SolarEdge inverters' power.

Firefighter Gateway

The Firefighter Gateway provides centralized safety management of SolarEdge systems.

Firefighters can immediately stop production of a SolarEdge PV system, either manually through an emergency stop button or automatically through a Fire Alarm Control Panel System.

This reduces string voltage to a safe voltage using the unique SafeDC™ feature.

SolarEdge Cellular Kit

The SolarEdge Cellular kit enables Internet connectivity from the inverter to the SolarEdge Cloud-Based Monitoring Platform with no need to rely on the homeowner’s internet connection.  The cellular modem can be installed directly inside the SolarEdge inverter and connected to an external antenna, simplifying the communication set up and saving installation time. Two separate models are available: one supporting the GSM network, and one supporting the CDMA network.

RS485 Expansion Kit

The RS485 Expansion Kit provides an additional RS485 port for enhanced communications. The kit contains a module which is installed on the communication board and has a 3-pin RS485 terminal block.

RS485 Surge Protection Device

Lightning and other surge events are unpredictable and can destroy an unprotected inverter in a moment. The RS485 Surge Protection Device from SolarEdge, is designed to protect the inverter's RS485 transceiver in cases where surge events might occur. The small and inexpensive device is compatible with all SolarEdge three phase inverters, including the E-Series. It snaps into the RS485 terminal via the 9-pin connector and a single cable is connected to the inverter with a grounding screw.
