Eltek, the world leader in high efficiency power systems for telecommunications, industrial applications, and renewable energy projects, announced today that its THEIA HE-t solar inverter has been certified by the internationally recognized SunSpec Alliance.
Successful testing and achievement of SunSpec Alliance certification is an important milestone, as it verifies that technology such as Eltek’s THEIA HE-t, meets interoperability specifications which helps drive universal compatibility for renewable energy devices and services.
SunSpec Alliance is a renewable energy coalition formed to establish open IT standards for solar photovoltaic (PV) components and systems that reduce costs, promote innovation and accelerate industry growth.

“We truly enjoyed the opportunity to interact with other cutting-edge PV companies at PlugFest and to demonstrate the interoperability and high efficiency of the THEIA HE-t,” said Morten Schoyen, CMO of Eltek. “This SunSpec Alliance certification gives customers an added assurance that our inverter is compatible with other certified products such as data loggers, meters, and environmental systems.”
The THEIA HE-t series inverters deliver 97 percent efficiency and are lightweight and compact. The units feature a flexible connection set, backlit color display and integrated web server for quick configuration and easy operation.
