The KOSTAL group: the success story of KOSTAL As an independent, family-run company, the KOSTAL group is specialised in the development of high-quality electronic and mechatronic solutions for a wide range of industrial and automobile applications. The company was founded in 1912 by Leopold Kostal in Lüdenscheid, Germany, and today employs about 13.300 people in 37 locations in a total of 17 countries. The KOSTAL group has four divisions: Automotive Electrical Systems, Industrial Electronics with its international sales company Solar Electric, Connectors and SOMA (Test Technology). The KOSTAL group’s partners include the world’s leading automobile manufacturers and numerous major industrial companies. PIKO battery inverter with battery cabinet Quality offensive thinking Upgrading our PIKO to a battery inverter means that when combined with an external battery storage, energy can be consumed even when solar energy is not being generated. The PIKO battery inverter is particularly useful for domestic consumption as it can provide not just a threephase symmetrical feed but unsymmetrical too if required. To attain maximum functionality and safety from the battery storage system, the inverter uses the proven lead/gel technology. If managed correctly as an integrated battery management system, this technology ensures a good yield over a long period and no need for maintenance. The modular structure of the chosen battery storage system also provides a key beneﬁt to installation. Having been developed in-house at KOSTAL, the PIKO battery inverter meets very high standards. All PIKO inverters are produced in line with state-of-the-art technological standards. All production processes are aligned to the „zero-error philosophy“ of an automobile supplier. The PIKO inverter undergoes strict quality checks, including a ﬁnal check lasting several hours, throughout the production process. All of these extra functions have been added to the PIKO battery inverter while retaining the proven beneﬁts of the PIKO string inverter series. For example, the latest addition to the PIKO family offers a high degree of ﬂexibility, e.g. two MPP trackers and a wide input voltage range. As a matter of course it also features the communication concept for PV system monitoring as standard. The compact design and low weight are also beneﬁcial when handling and installing. KOSTAL Solar Electric: a partner you can count on In the Industrial Electronics division, the PIKO inverters are developed and produced at the German headquarters. KOSTAL Solar Electric GmbH handles all the work involved in distributing the PIKO inverters as well as technical support. International customers beneﬁt from a local service from our branch ofﬁces in France, Italy, Spain and Greece. KOSTAL partnerships are designed for the long term. This has always been and continues to be an essential element of our company culture. Regular changes to legislation to promote renewable energies are resulting in the feed-in tariff falling all the time. This makes the use of selfproduced solar energy increasingly attractive as it minimises your costs. The energy management system integrated in the PIKO battery inverter is a useful tool. Taking account of ﬁnancial and technical aspects, the system decides whether the electricity produced is fed to the mains grid, stored in the battery or used.
