Do Smart Modules and Add-On Optimizers Offer the Same Functionality?

Add-On Optimizers (ES and 2ES series) and Smart Modules (JES series)

Feature

Add-on

(2ES, ES)

Smart Module

(JES series)

Optimization
Safety
Module-level Monitoring
Longer Strings  

 

The longer string functionality, or Smart Curve, is unique to Smart Modules, where the optimizer is embedded into the PV module's junction box.

Both Smart Modules and add-on optimizers offer optimization, safety, and module-level monitoring capabilities.

Design tip: When calculating string size, always refer to your module data sheet.
Smart Modules will already have the adjusted value for maximum output voltage listed.
