PID box series

Features

Omron & iLumen's retrofit solution to recover PID

When PV panels are exposed to a negative voltage to ground, Potential Induced Degradation (PID) can occur and reduce energy generation. In partnership with iLumen, we deliver a retrofit solution to eliminate PID directly in the field, with keeping PV modules in place.

  • Proven solution tested by TÜV Rheinland
  • Noticeable improvement in affected panels within 5 days with PID box connected in series
  • PID box connected in series is compatible with all brands of inverters and string sizes (no compatibility issues for retrofit)
  • Suitable for small and medium as well as large scale solar systems
  • Plug and play
  • Indoor and outdoor models available
