my-PV launches AC-THOR 9s power controller for hot water and space heating from photovoltaics on the market
Neuzeug, Austria, April 24th, 2019. The new power controller AC-THOR 9s can control both electrical room heating and water heaters up to 9 kilowatts of power linearly. It controls three-phase heating elements or up to three electrical heat sources and can even supply several heating circuits and regulate them independently of each other.
Because it communicates with inverters, battery systems and smart home controls, the intelligent power controller always knows exactly how much excess solar power is available. In energy-optimised buildings, the device replaces the entire fluid-based heating technology. Missing energy comes from the grid. Alternatively, the solar power manager can also be integrated in conventional buffer storage tanks. The new power controller is no larger than its "little brother" AC-THOR, which my-PV launched in 2017 for detached and multi-family homes.
Ideal for high-performance PV systems and advanced heating requirements
AC-THOR 9s opens up numerous new areas of application due to its high performance. For example, residential buildings with larger solar power systems can further increase their self-consumption by storing more heat. In addition, the new power controller is ideal for use in agriculture, hotels and commercial buildings, where, for example, high-performance PV systems require a lot of heat for cleaning, manufacturing or wellness.
my-PV at Intersolar Europe
AC-THOR 9s will be available from July. my-PV will present the solar power manager at its booth at Intersolar Europe in Munich, from May 15th to 17th, hall C4, booth number 110.
