Reduce system complexity, component count and cost while increasing efficiency. SINACON HC is the AC grid inverter that connects up to three DC sources (e.g., PV, batteries, etc.) simultaneously for clean and reliable power on microgrids or public grids.

Rely on SINACON HC – the efficient all-round converter for innovative grid applications

SINACON HC is a ready-to-run grid converter with all required grid functionalities. This converter combines renewable energy source and storage within one unit for diverse applications. The innovative product concept with its high operational flexibility gives the user optimization benefits for on-grid and off-grid operation.

The SINACON HC converter’s universal capability combined with its high-performance architecture and advanced control features is the Siemens answer to the challenges of a rapidly growing distributed energy market.

Components are sourced from the U.S. and the widereaching Siemens global supply chain and assembled in our Alpharetta, GA, assembly center. U.S.-centered production makes it easy to confirm firsthand our quality materials and manufacturing process. It allows for shorter production timelines, transitioning quickly from specs to provisioning to an up-and-running installation. And if replacement parts are needed, they can be provided quickly and efficiently, reducing your risk of disruption to smooth delivery of power.

Technical features of SINACON HC

Flexible configuration

Based on 250-A, 500-A and 1000-A building blocks that can be used in various configurations. Each block can be used as a DC interface or three times for an AC interface, and is always ready to connect with fuses and contactor or circuit breaker.

Certified to local grid codes (such as BDEW, UL1741, TAB HV), necessary approvals for installation and operation of medium voltage grids.

Highest DC input voltage range (100 to 1150 V DC) independent of the AC voltage offers optimal flexibility in operation and system optimization.

High dynamic control

Reacts fast to the demand and changes from inductive to capacitive operation in less than 20 msec.

Global Siemens guarantee

Siemens global standard of superior services, availability, spare parts, and application support, all based out of our Alpharetta, GA, facility.

Closed-loop internal liquid cooling with air-water heat exchanger provides benefits such as easy implementation and low maintenance (very few auxiliary fan and filter mats).

Superior reliability was confirmed by a rigorous type test in accordance with Siemens quality standards.
