New technologies must be adapted to people and their time, not the other way around. They should serve to improve quality of life and the living environment. This conviction is the source of our passion that drives us to create energy. It is the basis of our vitality and our success.
At the turn of the year 1998/1999, Ralf Hofmann and a dozen employees left the old KACO group to start a separate company that was solely dedicated to photovoltaics: KACO GERÄTETECHNIK GmbH. With them, they brought decades of experience from KACO, which was already the world’s largest supplier of electromechanical choppers in the 50s, the predecessors of today’s inverters.
Energy is our profession, and we pursue it with great passion. To do so, we need the most innovative and creative minds, the most most visionary and unconventional thinkers. People who are passionately committed to the ideas of renewable energy.
In order to satisfy the global demand for our products and solutions we manufacture on three continents. In Germany we manufacture for the European market, in South-Korea for the Asia-Pacific region, and in Texas for North, Central and South America. Contacting our sales teams is just a stone’s throw away: our international subsidiaries are located close to all major PV markets.
In research and development, engineers and technicians are striving for the highest levels of efficiency. Their approach is defined by ambitious quality standards. As a result, they are continuously improving energy technologies.
The blueplanet Ultraverter system combines the best features of DC-optimizers, string and micro-inverter technology in one advanced concept. Due to a newly designed control system, multiple low voltage AC inverters can be connected in series up for a standard 240 Volt, split phase utility connection. It is the ideal solution for residential PV plants.
Three-phase InvertersImagine perfect grid current – the kind you get from large-scale power plants – but from decentralised renewable sources. The TL3 and TR3 series combine KACO new energy‘s many years of experience in developing inverters with the demand for perfect grid feeding.
With a line-up of 1-phase transformerless units, KACO new energy will be inaugurating the new "blueplanet" solar PV inverter series. Newly designed and constructed from scratch, the blueplanet TL1 fulfil the highest requirements for optimum use in residential solar power plants.
The blueplanet 750 TL3, 875 TL3 and 1000 TL3 indoor are transformerless solar PV inverters with an AC power of 750 kVA, 875 kVA and 1,000 kVA. Make them your choice whenever you are equipping industrial- or utility-scale solar parks with inverters that are located inside.
With an AC power of 2,200 kVA the blueplanet 2200 TL3 indoor has been designed with utility-grade solar parks in mind. Thanks to its generous outfit this central inverter blends perfectly in PV power plant designs that are based on a container solution.
The Integrated Power Station provides you with the most extensive support in implementing utility-scale solar power plants. Inverters, medium voltage transformer and disconnection units for the DC and AC side can be mounted together on a single base plate to create a ready-to-use, functional unit.
Energy Systems TechnologyEnergy Storage, Home Energy Management or Off-Grid Photovoltaic are only some of the challenges for the future PV market. With our Energy Systems Technology Division we are prepared perfectly.
KACO new energy is opening up a whole new dimension with the blueplanet gridsave 1000 TL3, a storage solution in the megawatt class. This bidirectional battery inverter supports public utilities, distribution system operators, EPCs and large businesses alike in grid management in order to balance generation and load of power networks.
Do you want professional system monitoring and data logging? In that case, KACO proLOG is the high-end solution for your PV system. It provides error messages via e-mail as well as remote monitoring, web access, and many other features. Up to 32 devices can be connected to KACO proLOG via an RS485 interface.
This is the integrated monitoring feature our partners have asked us for. Coupled with the embedded digital control processor by KACO we have created a powerful monitoring tool that will accurately and reliably provide the most pertinent data that you need.
Our Global service partners are always at your side with a full range of services which leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to operation and maintenance. Here you will find a closely-knit network of international service partners.
