  • Maximum Total Power is 1000W for two modules
  • Maximum Current is 15A per input
  • Available as 1500V UL
  • UL-certified as NEC 2017 Rapid Shutdown Solution
  • Snap to standard module frame or rack mounting
  • Module-level deactivation with automatic or manual shutdown
  • PV array enters rapid shutdown in event of AC grid loss
  • Powerline communication (PLC) signaling
  • Smaller unit dimensions with reduced weight per unit by 25% 
  • Reduced shipping costs with 33% more units per pallet
  • Recessed mounting allows shipments of pre-assembled PV modules
  • Improved heat dissipation with over-temperature and over-voltage protection
  • Improved IP68 rating for greater outdoor exposure

SHINE Creates Therapeutics Division, Will Attend 2019 European Association of Nuclear Medicine Conference12.10.2019 07:00:00 EESTPress release

SHINE Medical Technologies, LLC today announced the creation of a new division of the company — SHINE Therapeutics. The establishment of the division enhances the company’s ability to focus on filling critical future needs in the rapidly growing therapeutic isotope market, while continuing to leverage its radioisotope production expertise. The company’s Therapeutics division will initially focus on the development and commercialization of lutetium‑177, or Lu‑177, a therapeutic isotope that is combined with a disease-specific targeting molecule to treat cancer. Targeting molecules deliver Lu‑177 atoms to cancer sites throughout the body, where they directly irradiate cancer cells. The first Lu‑177-based targeted radiotherapy (for neuroendocrine tumors) reached the market in 2018. Many high-potential targeted molecules for the treatment of a range of other cancers with Lu-177 are currently under investigation. SHINE is also evaluating additional medical isotopes with therapeutic properti

Smart Taxation – A Step Towards a Fair, Efficient and Growth-Friendly European Taxation Approach12.10.2019 01:01:00 EESTPress release

In a rapidly changing global economy, smart taxation is essential to drive growth and economic prosperity. However, the European Union (EU) continues to fall behind as it persists with a one-size-fits all taxation system. This year’s GLOBSEC Tatra Summit hosts a Focus Group, bringing together international experts, looking to reshape and support a smarter European tax policy. Europe is at a crossroads in adapting its tax policy to the realities of today’s global economy. The EU plays a key role in overseeing national tax rules in some areas - particularly in relation to EU business and consumer policies. The institutional changeover marks a perfect opportunity for the Tatra Summit to place major topics on the radar of decision-makers and offer efficient recommendations. So now is the time to adapt the EU’s taxation model to be fit-for-purpose. With member states around the table, European fiscal authorities should design a model that does not have a disruptive impact on national needs
