> About Schneider Electric
Renewable Energies
The history of Schneider Electric
Schneider Electric, founded in 1836, has transformed
itself into the global specialist in energy management.
From its roots in the iron and steel industry, heavy
machinery, and ship building, it moved into electricity
and automation management. In the late 20th
century the Schneider Group shifted its focus to the
electrical industry by separating from its non-strategic
activities and was solidified through its acquisitions of
Telemecanique in 1988, Square D in 1991 and Merlin
Gerin in 1992. In 1999 development of installation,
systems and control was bolstered with the acquisition
of Lexel, Europe’s number two in electrical distribution.
In May of the same year, the company was renamed
Schneider Electric to more clearly emphasize its
expertise in the electrical field.
2
From 2000 through 2009 Schneider Electric entered
into a phase of organic growth and began positioning
itself in new market segments: UPS (uninterruptible
power supply), movement control, building automation
and security and renewable energy through the
acquisitions of APC, Clipsal, TAC, Pelco, Xantrex
Technology and more.
As a global specialist in energy management with
operations in more than 100 countries, Schneider
Electric offers integrated solutions across multiple
market segments, including leadership positions
in energy and infrastructure, industrial processes,
building automation, data centers/networks, as
well as a broad presence in residential applications.
Focused on making energy safe, reliable, efficient,
productive and green, the company's 110,000 plus
employees achieved sales of 19.6 billion Euros in 2010,
through an active commitment to help individuals and
organizations "Make the most of their energy™."
In October of 2008, with Schneider Electric’s purchase
of Xantrex Technology, a significant milestone
was reached in the company’s expansion into the
renewable energies sector. Combining Xantrex’s
knowledge and expertise in renewable energies and
Schneider Electric’s depth of experience in energy
management was critical for the future success of the
organization in this space. The renewable energies
business of Schneider Electric is focused on designing
and developing renewable energy products and
solutions and providing best-in-class, global customer
service and technical support.
Schneider Electric provides the full solution from
the panel DC output to the grid connection, including
monitoring & supervision.

Off-grid and backup
Basic off-grid system
With an off-grid system, you can easily produce your own power without the expense
and environmental impact of extending power lines, or relying completely on a generator.
A basic off-grid system consists of a renewable energy source which generates DC
power, a battery bank that stores the DC power, and an inverter. Our inverter is the
intelligent center of a renewable power system, seamlessly converting DC power to
clean AC electricity for your needs.
With a backup system, grid-connected homes can benefit from electricity even if there
is a grid failure. An inverter/charger automatically detects the failure and switches to
backup power using energy stored in a battery bank.

The XW MPPT 80 600 is an innovative solar charge controller that offers
an industry-first set of features: high PV input voltage (up to 600 Vdc),
Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT), and 80 A charge current. 600 Vdc
PV input voltage delivers lower installation costs through fewer PV strings,
longer home runs, smaller wiring and conduit, and virtual elimination of
PV combiner boxes and circuit breakers. MPPT technology helps harvest
the most energy available from the PV array, regardless of environmental
conditions. 80 A battery charge current allows for connection of arrays
rated at up to 4800 W (48 V battery bank).

Glossary of terms
Alternating current (AC)
The type of electricity supplied by the utility company.
The unique characteristic of this form of electricity
is that it reverses direction at regular intervals. For
example, 230 V 50 Hz power reverses flow 50 times
a second, hence the rating 50 Hz (cycles).
High battery voltage protection
A unit of measure of the flow of electrical current.
A control circuit that disconnects charge current
flowing to the battery before voltage reaches a
dangerously high threshold. Prevents damage created
by excess gassing (or boiling) of electrolyte.
Amp hour (Ah)
Idle current
Amp (A)
One amp of electrical current flowing for one hour.
The unit Ah is an expression of the capacity (size)
of a battery.
The amount of electrical current required to keep
an inverter ready to produce electricity on demand.
Current
The peak current an appliance or tool will draw at
the instant it starts up.
The rate of flow of electric charge, usually expressed
in amps (or amperes).
Direct current (DC)
The type of electricity stored in batteries and generated
by solar electric devices. Current flows in a single
direction.
Electrolyte
A conductive medium in which the flow of electricity
takes place; this is the liquid found inside storage
batteries.
Grid
When used in reference to utility power, it refers to a
system of electrical transmission and distribution lines.
Ground fault protection (GFP)
A shock hazard protection device that limits the flow
of electrical current to earth. Usually required in wet
locations, e.g. for outdoor, kitchen, and bathroom
circuits.
Hertz (Hz)
37
The frequency, or number of times per second, that
the flow of AC electricity reverses itself. Also referred
to as cycles (see alternating current).
Inrush current
Kilowatt (kW)
One thousand Watts of electricity. Ten 100 Watt light
bulbs use one kW of electrical power.
Kilowatt hour (kWh)
One kW of electrical power used for one hour. Most
grid connected electrical meters measure kWh for
billing purposes.
Line loss
A voltage drop caused by resistance in wire during
transmission of electrical power over distance.
Load
Any device that consumes electricity to operate.
Appliances, tools, and lights are examples of
electrical loads.
At Schneider Electric Renewable Energies,
customer
satisfaction
is everyone's number one priority
