AE 250TX and AE 260TX
(Formerly known as PVP250kW and PVP260kW)
The industry standard for reliability,
installability and maintainability
The AE 250TX and AE 260TX commercial inverters raise the
bar for inverter reliability, ease of installation, and lifetime
maintainability, while delivering best-in-class 97.0% CEC efficiency.
High reliability is enabled by market-leading features including
busbar power connections, a redundant cooling system, card
cage circuit board design and wide operating temperature range.
The highly integrated inverter saves installers time and money by
including load break rated AC & DC service disconnects, neutralfree installation, oversized busbar landings and generous cable
bending area with bottom and side cable entry options.
Communication interfaces, remote disable inputs, and optional
24 V auxiliary power supply are housed in a dedicated low power
compartment for safe and easy access. Subcombiner fusing, a
revenue grade meter, and performance monitoring gateway can be
factory installed for a completely integrated inverter solution.
The AE 250TX and AE 260TX offer a wide 295-595 V operating
window which maximizes energy harvest and provides exceptional
stringing flexibility. AE Solar Energy inverters are engineered for
reliability with more than 99% monitored fleet availability.
The AE 250TX and AE 260TX are backed with an industry-leading,
10-year, nationwide warranty and a comprehensive optional
20-year warranty; plus the most responsive service and support
team in the business.
