eIQ offers the Parallux DC vBoost 250 and 350 W converters, which can be installed on one or more PV modules in the system, as long as the power does not exceed the limit of the vBoost. For example, two 125 W modules could be connected to the vBoost 250, but monitoring would be for the pair, not for individual modules. The eIQ uses a parallel wiring architecture to generate constant voltage coming into the inverter, maximizing the inverter’s MPPT system. The Monitoring System’s Communications Module reads the module-level power information from each vBoost DC converter over the DC power line, avoiding an additional data cable or wireless radio system. It uploads to the manufacturer’s Web site or can be downloaded for analysis on a local PC, and offers financial reporting and fault-detection alerts.
