How to connect a GSD to a SolarEdge Inverter
Installing a GSD (Generation Signalling Device) on an SolarEdge inverter system to meet the new Queensland Emergency Backstop requirements is simple 3 step process:
1- Mount the GSD in a suitable location – i.e. within the MSB or the switchboard containing the protective device for inverter supply.
If using a network protection AC Board (supplied by AC Solar Warehouse) this can be pre-wired with a GSD on request.
2- Connect AC power to the GSD by wiring it directly to the Main Switch Inverter Supply.
3- Connect the GSD control cable to the SolarEdge inverter’s PRI (power reduction interface) port on connector pins 5 and 6 via the RJ45 adapter that is supplied with the GSD.
SolarEdge has released an App Note providing detailed instructions on connecting a GSD to SolarEdge systems . Check out the guide here.
