Reference EN 50524:2009
Title Data sheet and name plate for photovoltaic inverters
Project Number 16994
Abstract/Scope This European Standard describes data sheet and name plate information for photovoltaic inverters in grid parallel operation. The intent of this document is to provide minimum information required to configure a safe and optimal system with photovoltaic inverters. In this context, data sheet information is a technical description separate from the photovoltaic inverter. The name plate is a sign of durable construction at or in the photovoltaic inverter. The name plate may be inside the photovoltaic inverter only if the name plate is visible once a door is opened in normal use.

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
