Xenos Distriverter

The Xenos Distriverter is the brains behind a Xenos String


The Xenos Distriverter mounts to the edge of a solar panel at the start of a Xenos String. At one end, 25mm conduit thread is provided allowing standard 3-core cable to be professionally wired to the system. On the other end, an Optimiser Port for connection to the first Xenos Inverter Optimiser.

The Xenos Distriverter adapts the output from connected Inverter Optimisers for connection to the electricity grid. It passes monitoring data to the Power Mate via power-line communications.

The Xenos Distriverter and its connected Inverter Optimisers are capable of producing a wide range of voltages and frequencies making them suitable for worldwide use. The connected Power Mate configures the system for the local grid and provides data logging and viewing.


The Xenos Distriverter is a low voltage, low heat, highly efficient device. Because it is only performing a small adjustment on its input, efficiencies can exceed 99.8%. To read more about this device, see our Technology page.
