Hatboro, PA – Alencon Systems LLC will demonstrate the industry’s most extensive line-up of high power, high voltage DC:DC conversion equipment at SPI 2021 in New Orleans, Louisiana, September 21 – 23 in booth #5413. The Alencon products on display at SPI 2021 will include the latest version of Alencon’s galvanically isolated DC:DC converters, the SPOT and BOSS Version 7 series, along with the company’s soon to be released CUBE. The CUBE is slated for official release in 2022. In addition, Alencon will be displaying its full range of accessories including the GARD for string level arc and ground fault detection and ACE control system along with a variety of deployment form factors, including its stackable, paralleled solutions.
“Alencon aims to be the market leading provider of high power, high voltage DC:DC conversion solutions for applications including the combination of solar plus storage, solar optimization, Microgrids, EV charging and fuel cell applications” says Hanan Fishman, Alencon Systems President. “At SPI 2021, we will be showcasing the widest and most unique product portfolio for DC:DC power conversion for the clean energy electrification sector.”
The Alencon SPOT – which stands for string power optimizer and transmitter – is Alencon’s galvanically isolated, uni-directional DC:DC conversion solution. The SPOT can be used for a variety DC:DC applications include accepting solar and fuel cells as inputs while delivering a wide array of DC voltages on its output. The BOSS – which stands for bi-directional optimizer for storage systems – is Alencon’s bi-directional DC:DC converter solution. The BOSS is ideal for the bi-directional charge and discharge of battery energy storage in DC distribution systems such as solar and storage. At SPI, Alencon will be showcasing the SPOT and BOSS Version 7 series, products that offer yet higher power ratings than previous versions in the same, compact form factor.
At SPI 2021, Alencon will debut its latest DC:DC converter offering – the CUBE, the compact universal boost/buck converter. Unlike the SPOT and BOSS, the CUBE offers a non-isolated buck boost topology. The CUBE is unique in that it leverages Alencon’s unique high frequency switching technology to achieve a power density ten times greater than the other, non-isolated DC:DC converters available on the market today. The CUBE is scheduled for production release in 2022.
