    I've been dragging my feet on buying the inverter for my DIY project, hoping the 7600H would come out in time to be useful. I'm ready to pull the trigger now, and the unofficial opinion of SolarEdge support isn't optimistic:

      I was very excited for HD wave as well but mostly due to the power outlet option that now seams it is removed all together. Sad!

      yeah still HDwave is the best option the way I see it but only if they had the bigger models out
      they are not even planning to build the 11.4K model or even 10K model.
      probably next year but I am not going a whole year without solar for that. I expect to move on my project by July. a nice 20k to 25Kw system

        I'm not sure how to feel about the speed at which SE doesn't release announced products or otherwise innovate. Maybe my expectations are to high and I should just expect they are doing what they need to remain profitable. I think they were touting the HD wave in 2015...

          part of the problem is they have to get it in a final version and then submit it to UL testing. A costly process that takes time and no company wants to have to resubmit but any change will require that.

            Sort of weird that they already got approval from the listing agency on the model, so it looks like something else is going on.

              what? are you sure?

                I think you have the wrong spec sheet

                https://www.solaredge.com/sites/defa...tasheet-na.pdf

                The one you showed is non-US

                  I guess that explains it. I should be referring to it explicitly as 7600H-US.

                    Yes, As someone who designs new products, the testing and tooling are usually the longest parts of the project.
                    With testing, if you have 1 minor failure, then you have to make a change and start testing from scratch. And testing can take a few months.

                      True in general for manufacturers, but I don't buy it in the case of the long advertized HD wave unless they have very big issues to work through with UL. This doesn't explain a multi-year product release time, and then only partial release at that. Not good for their brand to tout how revolutionary their product re-design is and then not have a fire under their butts to get it out on the market. If a SE representative is talking 2018 for the rest of their models now, they may indeed be having some major issues.

                        Just talked to our rep who stated that SolarEdge will be getting the SE5000H out to distributors in June and the SE6000H in July, and that they expected the SE7600H by late Sept.
                        He also stated that they plan to have the SE10000 and SE11400 replaced around the end of the year but no idea on when we would see the spec sheets on them.

                          Much nicer and neater....It's great they made them less bulky. It's a huge benefit.

                            Did the optional 'Self-sustaining power outlet' feature they announced make it to market intact with the HD-Wave?

                              Nope. They are including an option for a built in EVSE though.

                                That is not compatible with the automatic rapid shutdown that they needed for new code requirements.
