About product

To date, IQ8 is the smartest microinverter ever produced by Enphase. These are the first microinverters to possess grid-forming and split-phase conversion capabilities, which bring the efficiency of these devices to an entirely new level. Reliability has also been vastly improved. Enphase has conducted extensive power-on testing, exceeding 1 million cumulative hours. Now the company is offering a limited warranty of up to 25 years, which is one of the best in the industry.

The brain of the IQ8 is a powerful 55 nm chip. This proprietary solution enables the device to work both in grid-tie and off-grid modes. Record-breaking response times to shifting loads and other events eliminate some of the battery-sizing limitations, granting your PV system extra flexibility. IQ8 microinverters form part of Enphase IQ family of devices. It means they can be easily integrated with the Battery, Gateway and Enphase App for performance-tracking and analysis.

The microinverters are sold with plug and play MC4 connectors, making the installation fast with little effort required. The devices are listed by UL as Rapid Shutdown Equipment. They also meet a number of important regulations, such as CA Rule 21 (UL 1741-SA) requirements.

Have been buying Enphase microinverters almost from the moment they appeared on the market. Most of the first units are still in good working order. The IQ8 seems just as robust.

What kind of cooling does it use?

The device uses natural convection, there is no active cooling.
Wow, will these IQ8 really work even when the grid is down?

Yes, they produce power even when the grid is down.
Hi When do you anticipate the Enphase IQ8 microinverters being available and guess as to a price per unit? Thank you Paul
