The Femtogrid product portfolio includes power optimizers, a robust inverter, plug & play cabling and a web portal with full visibility using module level monitoring. These 3 products reinforce each other and ensure maximization of solar energy in a safe, reliable and plug & play way for problem-free service.
The Femtogrid Power Optimizer is a DC/DC converter per renewable energy source, which performs Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) and voltage management per renewable energy source.

The Femtogrid Inverter is a robust DC/AC inverter that is specifically designed to support the Femtogrid Power Optimizers. It is robust as it operates in fixed (constant) voltage mode and it does not perform Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT). It it is only responsible for DC to AC inversion. As a result, the inverter is designed with fewer components than traditional string inverters, and, therefore more reliable. The fixed Femtogrid voltage (380 Vdc) enables an efficient DC/AC inversion. It has a standard 10-year warranty.
Femtogrid Cables clearly sets Femtogrid apart from traditional string solar due to the extra wire; Femtogrid uses an additional internal safety line in the DC solar cable. This safety line provides significant benefits in terms of safety and control.
On top of this, Femtogrid uses a unique parallel system architecture. With Femtogrid modules are connected in parallel to the inverter. Whereas traditional string solar uses a standard solar cable to connect modules in series to the string inverter.
The parallel system architecture - using Femtogrid Cables - together with the Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) per module - using Femtogrid Solar Power Optimizers - make sure modules equipped by Femtogrid maximize energy and are not limited by are optimized Consequently, with Femtogrid the performance of each module is maximized and independent of the energy generated by any other module in the system. Femtogrid Cables are plug & play, easy to use, and have a standard 20-year warranty.
