Krannich Solar and Bosch strengthen partnership with UK inverter launch

Bosch Power Tec and specialist PV distributor Krannich Solar have strengthened their global distribution partnership, with Krannich now bringing Bosch’s new and innovative range of string inverters to the UK market.

Bosch manufactures innovative and highly efficient solar inverters and storage solutions, suitable for PV plants ranging in the residential segment. Bosch also produce power management controls, offering consumers the opportunity to create the ‘Smart Home’ of the future.

The BPT-S series of single-phase string inverters, available now from Krannich Solar, combines beautiful aesthetics with high performance and advanced communications features, enabling rapid commissioning and simplified remote analysis.

The BPT-S series sets completely new standards of usability and analysis opportunities because, in addition to one or two Ethernet interfaces, they have a trend-setting RFID communications interface. Using this and Bosch’s e.Key technology, installers can achieve touchless settings and world-first gesture controls in seconds.

The BPT-S series also provides high levels of flexibility and safety, plus a wide entry voltage range and high yields. The integrated data logger function makes all data available in graphical form in the e.Web monitoring portal and, additionally, smartphone users can see data visualisation via the e.UserApp. Individual parameters are also available online and the e.Data integrated setup tool helps installers to better prepare for aftersales visits or can even make them unnecessary.

“We are delighted to welcome Bosch inverters to our UK portfolio” says Kim Mann, Chief Operating Officer at Krannich UK, “and are excited to offer solar PV installers access to the next generation of inverter technology. Everything about Bosch inverters – from their touchless controls to their strong brand appeal and their unparalleled aesthetics – gives them unprecedented desirability for installers and consumers alike.

“At Krannich Solar we take pride in offering our customers a varied, competitive and comprehensive portfolio of leading PV equipment and the strength of our distribution partnership with Bosch is truly indicative of our long-term commitment to the solar industry, both globally and locally here in the UK.”

Christopher Lake of Bosch adds: “Krannich have already had success distributing Bosch inverters across various other countries and we are pleased to use their first-class knowledge, service and specialist solar insight to bring our new string inverters to the UK market. As part of our partnership, we have also agreed to offer Krannich customers access to free and comprehensive Bosch product training.

“As well as experiencing first-hand the advantages of Bosch PV inverters and the future Smart Home Energy trend, delegates will also be given the opportunity to receive one Bosch string inverter free of charge.”
