Enphase Q-Relay for IQ7/IQ7+ Single Phase
In Enphase installations, the single-phase Q Relay (network system relay controller) acts as a galvanic disconnection device. It is designed for single phase use and has built in contactors. During specified grid abnormalities, the Q Relay disconnects the Enphase Microinverters from the AC grid, and when the voltages return to normal and the grid frequency is in the acceptable range, the Q Relay reconnects the microinverters to the AC grid. The Q Relay has built in current sensing that can detect DC current injection required by VDE V 0126-1-1 requirements. The Q Relay works together with the Envoy-S to meet the need to break both line and neutral per grid requirements. See full installation instructions for the Enphase Envoy-S and/or Enphase Microinverters at: enphase.com/support. It is best practice to install the Q Relay when installing the Envoy-S and before commissioning the system. The Q relay is IP-20 rated. You must mount it in an environmentally protected enclosure.
Please note a -INT or -NL version will be supplied. There is no difference between the two variants. During the commissioning process the Envoy loads the required profile based on the region.
Not required in the UK.
