SparqLinq

Next generation gateway

SparqLinq

Part of a revolutionary, new microinverter system that will reset industry standards for low capital cost, ease of installation, high reliability, high energy harvest, and advanced grid functionality. Paired with the advanced Quad 1200 microinverter, solar photovoltaic systems have never been so advanced.

Sparq’s all new SparqLinq is faster, more powerful, and much more feature rich than ever before. An all new user interface backed by industry standard Zigbee wireless communication allows for instant access to real-time information as well as historical performance records from their PV installation.

Using powerful visualization tools, Sparq’s user interface simplifies the vast amount of information collected from a PV system and displays it in a quick and easy to understand manner. With the help of the SparqLinq’s cloud-based energy management portal “SparqVu”, users can expect to have complete access to their data from any where with nearly any device.

Key Features

Smart

  • Powered by an ultra-high performance Linux microcomputer
  • Advanced Zigbee communication allows for reliable communication through walls and ceilings

Detailed

  • Displays Real-Time metrics and stores historical information for 25 years
  • Panel-by-panel information is provided at no additional cost

Easy-to-use

  • Cloud based monitoring allows for instant access from anywhere
  • Modern HTML, CSS, and JavaScript user interface supports nearly any device – no app required!

Quick Installation

  • Automatic detection of connected inverters means quick and painless installation BEFORE the AC is connected
  • Perform an installation layout once and it is automatically synced to your cloud account

Purchasing Process

We can take you through the entire process
and answer any questions you may have.

Step 1 - Understand your requirements

Determine your average annual energy consumption by summing the last 12 months of kWh energy usage from your utility bills. Use the annual energy to help select the system size.

Step 2 - Size the system

Get an idea of the solar potential of your location by going to the free PV Watts site here: PV Watts Calculator

Entering your address or zip code, select the solar resource data and go to system info.

Set DC System Size to 1. If mounting the system on your roof, enter the Tilt (slope) and Azimuth (angle rotated from north). Press Go to Results. Divide the annual energy from step 1 by the PV Watts result to get the system size in kW needed to offset all of your electricity usage.

As an example,

• Annual energy = 5,600kWh
• PV Watts results = 1,512kWh
• System size = 5600/1512 = 3.703kW

Step 3 - Create a bill of material and contact us

Each Q1200 (Quad) will produce up to 1.2kW of power Divide the System size calculated in Step 2 by 1.2 to determine the number of Quad microinverters needed to offset the annual energy consumption.

Continuing the above example

• System size = 3.703kW
• Number of Q1200 = 3.703/1.2=3.08

Round this to 3. Each Quad will be connected to 4 PV modules. Size the PV modules for peak output between 300 and 350W per 60 cell module.

Each Quad will need a Trunk cable branch connector. The Trunk cable will need an end terminator cap. A SparqLinq gateway allows the system to be monitored.An AC disconnect tool and a DC disconnect tool are recommended for maintenance.

A total parts list for this example is:

• Quad
• Trunk cable branch connectors
• End terminator cap
• SparqLinq gateway
• AC and DC disconnect tool
