According to reports, Ronds Innotech Saturday launched a home inverter here that runs on solar power and if attached to home appliances like fans and televisions can considerably reduce electricity bills.
“The product (‘Smart Solar Inverter’) will be available initially in south India and then expanded to other markets. The price range begins from Rs.29,000 for the base model,” said Sijo Joseph, CEO, Ronds Innotech. The company is based in Technopark, a technology hub in Thiruvananthapuram.
The device, the first of its kind, is equipped with an inbuilt embedded performance tracking system and can communicate with a remote PC.
Joseph said the device is developed to support all home appliances such as lights, fans, televisions and all household electrical equipments.
The ‘Smart Solar Inverter’ is an innovative and patented technology that can reduce electricity bills considerably. It works both on solar and normal mode.
Moreover, the company has also developed a facility to convert existing inverters at home to a smart solar inverter by adding Rond Solar Hybrid Automated Power Controlling Unit (APCU).
The inverter’s automated power source selection mechanism (APSS) automates the power selection between AC mains and solar power.
If there is sufficient power from the sunlight, APSS will directly run the applications from sunlight without taking power from AC mains supply, thus reducing the electricity bill to a great extent and if the load connected requires more power, APSS will change power source to AC mains supply.
“There is always a growth and scope of innovative ideas like these which are helping us making our lives better, these new innovations bring in a positive array of thoughts in minds of other entrepreneurs,” said K.C. Chandrashekharan Nair, Registrar, Technopark TBI, launching the device.
