(Nasdaq:PWER), a leading provider of renewable energy and energy-efficient power conversion and power management solutions, has announced it has launched a newly designed central product specifically targeting the emerging Asian inverter market.

Power-One's new 250kW and 500kW utility grade central inverters have a number of key features, including a very high efficiency of 98.3%; electrolytic capacitor free, leading to longer MTBF (mean time between failures); compact size and weight; touch screen display; and 1000 Voc (open circuit voltage) rating.
