4 of 20 - Wiring the Inverter

  • Once the inverter is properly mounted, run conduit into the inverter's wire box. Ideally, the DC should land on the left side/bottom left corner of the inverter whereas the AC should land on the right side/bottom right corner. The wire terminals are spring clamp, so you will need a small common (flat) screwdriver to open them and land the wires. 
  • Please see pages 12-19 of the inverter manual if you need more details for this section. 

Here is the chart of recommended wire sizes: 


  • The terminals on the left-hand side of the wire box are the PV string input terminals. Just to the right of them are the DC battery input/output terminals. Be sure that the battery polarity is correct before pushing in the battery fuses.
  • There are eight PV string input terminals - four positive and four negative. The left set of four are the positive terminals, the right set of four are the negative terminals.  




  • The AC wire terminals are on the right side of the wire box. The recommended wire sizes are: 


  • Please strip off at least 1 & 5/8 inches of sheath and insert the wire into the terminal.
  • These are screw terminals so please have a Phillips screwdriver ready and tighten to 2 N.m. 
  • Here is a table for recommended over-current protection devices on the AC side: 


  • Startup voltage is 120 Vdc 
  • Operating voltage range for each MPPT is 90-450 Vdc 
  • Rated voltage is 330 Vdc and the maximum voltage is 500 Vdc 
  • The maximum usable input current per MPPT is 22A (times 2 MPPTs) 
  • The maximum short circuit input current is 34.3A (times 2 MPPTs) 
  • Battery operating voltage range is 120-500 Vdc  
  • The maximum charge/discharge current is 20A  
  • Note: DC battery fuses are 30A  
  • Nominal grid voltage is 208/240 Vac and nominal frequency is 60 Hz 
  • The rated grid output current will vary based on size (see Table 4.2 above) 
  • Maximum AC input current is 48A
