Description

The AmpliPHI features a Battery Management System (BMS) with closed loop communications pre-configured with Sol-Ark inverters that reports SOC and other critical real-time data, optimizing the value of storage and functionality within balance-of-system equipment. Combined with our proven overcurrent protection (OCPD) and accessible 100 Amp DC breaker On/Off switch, installation time is reduced and safety is increased during set-up for residential and commercial systems, on and off-grid. Designed to scale up to 30 batteries, the AmpliPHI will offer pre-configured communications with other inverter manufacturers, to be announced soon.
