Company History – Overview of Fox ESS

Fox ESS, based in Wuxi, China, is a manufacturer of solar inverters and energy storage solutions. The company was created in September 2019 and is one of the newest producers in the renewable energy industry. It is a subsidiary of the Tsingshan Group, which is a Fortune Global 500 corporation and the world’s largest stainless steel producer. In 2019, the parent company had around 56,000 employees and a sales figure of 37.6 billion dollars.

With mining, refining, and production facilities in Indonesia, Tsingshan Group has built one of the world’s largest nickel (Ni) supply chains. As the usage of nickel in electric vehicles and battery storage becomes more common, Fox ESS hopes to exploit this as a competitive advantage.

Being a startup business Fox ESS has yet to establish a local presence in Australia, with no listed office address or website. For service and tech assistance, there is an Australian phone number (1300 377 369).

A Quick Overview of Solar Inverters

The inverter in a solar system converts the DC electricity generated by solar panels into grid-compatible AC electricity.

In the solar business, string inverters (such as Fox ESS’s product line) have long been the standard. They transport the power generated by solar panels to a central inverter, which converts it from DC to AC electricity that may be used to power dwellings.

Microinverters, on the other hand, convert DC to AC electricity at each panel and allow for panel-level monitoring and power management. This is excellent for residences that are surrounded by clouds, trees, or other structures that provide shade.

Inverters from Fox are available in Australia.

The Clean Energy Council has authorized fifteen of Fox’s inverters (under the name Maitian Energy Co Ltd) for the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme, Australia’s home solar rebate program.

F Series Single-Phase Inverter For small to medium home installations, Fox-F-Series ESS’s offers single-phase and dual-MPPT inverters with power outputs ranging from 3kW to 6kW. The maximum DC power input is 9kW, with a 97.4 percent average maximum efficiency. A single-phase inverter may produce single-phase power from PV modules and connect to single-phase equipment or the grid, as its name implies.

Similarly, this inverter has an IP65 moisture ingress rating, making it suited for use in both indoor and covered outdoor environments. Remote monitoring is available on all Fox ESS inverters via a web interface or an app.

The hybrid solar inverter is capable of converting DC electricity to AC as well as charging a DC battery using DC power (which is why in the image to the right you can see two sets of cable entry points). If a solar system owner wants to install a DC battery, or if they want to keep their options open in the future, this is the way to go (without changing their inverter).

The hybrid inverter from Fox ESS has choices up to 6kW, allowing it to power solar panel arrays of up to 8kW. Their largest 6kW hybrid inverter can generate solar power and drain the battery at 6kW, providing adequate power for most homes — even when many appliances are running at the same time.

The hybrid inverter, like their other household solar inverters, is IP65 rated, making it appropriate for installation both indoors and outdoors.

3-Phase Inverter T Series

With options ranging from 3kW to 25kW, Fox’s T-Series solar inverter is aimed at residential premises with a 3-phase connection and small-scale commercial systems. It has a maximum input range of up to 37.5kW and a maximum efficiency of 98.6% on average. A 3-phase inverter contains four wires – three actives and a neutral – and can supply power at both 240V and 415V for some high-power products. A three-phase connection effectively triples the amount of electricity available because appliances can be distributed among the three phases.

This inverter has an IP65 moisture ingress rating, making it appropriate for installation indoors or in enclosed outdoor areas. Furthermore, it is fully optimized for the Fox-ESS battery storage system update (requires additional Fox-ESS equipment).

Is Fox-ESS a good brand of a solar inverter?

Fox-ESS is still a young firm that is trying to establish itself in Australia and gain market share. When buying things from a startup company, there are always dangers because they don’t have a track record to guarantee they’ll be around to maintain the products and honor warranty claims if necessary. This is especially true in the solar energy industry, where goods have long warranties and expected lifespan.

 

While Fox-ESS has shown some hopeful signals that they may be competing with some of the major brands in the future, there are currently no specific features of these inverters that would warrant the risks of purchasing from such a small firm.
