Stand-alone systems - systems for any requirement

Planungsblatt SOLARA solar energy

The SOLARA planning sheet
Photovoltaic island systems are as individual as their users. They must be planned exactly so that they can reliably fulfil their purpose, and have to be adapted to specific needs, the installation site and consumer behaviors.

Such systems include on one side energy sources like generators, solar arrays, wind turbines or a combination of them to generate the needed electricity locally. On the other side inverters and battery chargers are needed to store the energy into battery and to provide electrical power to the loads.

Use our detailed planning form for your system planning. This form helps you gather all the relevant information and provides an easily comprehensible view of your future system and its components and properties.

Power supply SOLARA 1500-12
XTH 3000-12 SOLARA solar energy

The Swiss company Studer Innotec is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sine-wave inverters and battery chargers for use in photovoltaic, marine and mobile applications, in emergency power supply and in telecommunications.

The combination inverters in the Xtender series, which can be remote controlled, are extraordinarily versatile. They combine the features of an inverter, battery charger, switching mechanism and support for external AC power sources, all in one device. All of these functions can be combined with one another and controlled fully automatically, which provides ease of use and extremely efficient utilisation of available energy.


  • Parallel and three-phase connection with up to nine Xtenders.
  • High performance and outstanding over load resistance.
  • Smart-Boost to support AC sources.
  • Back-up systems possible
  • Programmable battery charging strategies and charging voltages.
  • Quick transfer functionality
  • Two auxillary contacts, independently programmable.
  • Real time clock for event savings and programming of auxiliary contacts.

Alternating current (AC) as from the socket

AJ 1000-12 SOLARA solar energy
AJ 500-12 SOLARA solar energy
AJ 275-12 solar energy SOLARA

The AJ series of sine-wave inverters convert direct current from one battery into alternating current that can be used for all electronic devices. They function as reliably and trouble-free as a Swiss clock, and hold up even under extraordinary loads.
