The Schneider Electric PV BOX is a pre-wired equipment package specifically designed for large scale grid-tied solar installations that provides electrical distribution, automation, security, monitoring and control. The PV BOX can be installed into a variety of climates, including harsh desert environments.
The PV BOX consists of solar inverters, DC combiner boxes, step-up transformers and a medium voltage switch housed in a prefabricated building to allow quick field wiring from both the PV arrays and the utility grid connection point. Other items can be added to the package including climate controls, security equipment, array string monitoring, SCADA monitoring equipment, and power metering. Standard and custom designs are available using Xantrex GT250 and GT500 MVX inverters, with outputs of 250 kW, 500 kW, 1 MW and 2 MW.
