IMO receives UL certification for its FireRaptor solar panel rapid shutdown solution

Hertfordshire, U.K., October 8, 2020 /Solar Business Hub/ – IMO is very pleased to announce it has received its newest UL PVRSS (Photovoltaic Rapid Shutdown System) listing on the Fronius Primo family of inverters under UL1741 guidelines.

IMO worked closely with Fronius in achieving this listing as it required the development of an additional capacitance bleed circuit to dispel stored current upon Rapid Shutdown initiation. That product has also been certified as a PVRSE (Photovoltaic Rapid Shutdown Equipment) component by UL for use in the categories needed. These new listings supplement IMO’s current UL listed FireRaptor offering for NEC 2017 & NEC 2020 compliance, thus further encompassing a complete agnostic solution for all inverters in the marketplace.

Speaking from IMO Automation’s headquarters in Cumming GA, General Manager Joe Covington said:

“Supporting efforts and inverter manufacturers in the market is key to enabling the continued growth of the industry when faced with progressive NEC regulatory requirements. It is those partnerships and the comfort they have in approaching IMO for a safe and reliable Rapid Shutdown solution that sets us apart from the competition.”
