About product

To date, IQ8M 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 IQ8M 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. IQ8M 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.

This solution is a real game changer. It works like a hybrid inverter, forming a microgrid during a power outage. A1 still has the best prices, despite the high demand and chip shortage. Keep it up, guys!

The basic IQ8 wasn’t powerful enough for my panels, so I was advised to look into the IQ8M. They are the same thing, but the input power and peak output are different. Can’t wait to see them installed!

Have been waiting for the IQ8 ever since I heard about it back in 2017. Now the day has finally come. A1 didn’t make me wait longer than necessary, I just ordered a pick up and got the devices in a little over two days.

Yes, you can. This microinverter support panels with 260-460W output
Will these inverters work w/o the enovy?

Yes, IQ microinverters can work without Enphase Envoy. Envoy collects energy production data over your home's electrical wiring and then sends the collected data over the Internet to MyEnlighten so that you can monitor your system's performance
Will such a sophisticated device handle the heat well?

Ambient temperature range for the IQ8M is -40ºF to +140ºF.
Which is more powerful, the IQ8M or the IQ8H?

The IQ8H has 384 VA peak output and 320 - 540+ input power vs. 330 VA and 260 - 460 W of the IQ8M.
