The winners of Australia’s peak international design awards were announced during the 2021 Good Design Awards Week. Delta Electronics H8E / H10E Hybrid Solar Inverter received a Good Design Award Gold Accolade in the Product Design category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation.
Delta’s exciting new H8E / H10E Hybrid Solar Inverter is the first of its kind to truly meet the modern requirements of Australian solar consumers. This cost cost-effective development is a battery-ready DC coupled hybrid that comes with a built-in compliant DC Isolator and built-in power meter for consumption monitoring and export control.
The in class H8E / H10E is equipped with 4xMPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) to support multiple roof orientations. It features a “plug-less” connection with a rear cable option and has no external fans, maintaining a minimalist aesthetic and a quiet presence.
