Omnik New Energy: Redefining Photovoltaic Solar Inverters

CIO VendorDerek Zhang, Managing Director
Imagine the endless possibilities and environmental benefits created by Photovoltaic (PV) energy conversions against the non-renewable energy sources. Omnik New Energy is currently giving dimension to this idea, turning it into a reality with its unmatched PV inverters and services. Established in December 2010, Omnik is a leading technology company specializing in R&D, manufacturing, marketing, and after-sales service of PV inverters, while maintaining the balance of quality and price.

The organizations’ co-founders witnessed massive market potential in distributed PV power station and string inverters. With the vision for change, today Omnik New Energy is favored amongst “small” solar inverter manufacturers due to factors such as efficiency, stability, and reliability— solidifying the brand name.

Thinking Differently

Large-scale productions undergo three phases—the child phase, mature phase, and aging phase. In 2010, string inverter was in its first phase. The expectation of the market was at its minimum, deeming it as usable. In 2011, Omnik started exporting its products. Research and observation brought in evidence that end users needed to understand the amount of energy a PV plant is producing, including the ROI. Working to mitigate this issue, Omnik invented the first wireless cross screen monitoring system, known as the Omnik Portal, allowing its distributors, installers, and consumers to monitor the operation status through PCs, smartphones, tablets and other devices.

Currently, Omnik has a product line ranging from 300W micro-inverters to 60kW three-phase inverters. The products are mostly installed in households or commercial rooftops, unlike ground-mounted PV plants. In addition, Omnik’s primary goal is to provide installers and end users the solution for easy installation and worry-free maintenance with the elimination of round the clock manual operating engineers.

Before releasing these products for the end users, Omnik products go through rigorous tests, such as high and low-temperature alternating test, thermal shock text, damp heat test, salt mist test, and extreme temperature test. These tests guarantee that the products are highly durable with the ability to withstand any drastic weather changes. The R&D team monitors the whole procedure. Due to large scale manufacturing, Omnik also outsources the test phase of certain products, like the new Omniksol-7k and 8k-TL3 single phase inverter which is slated for release in June 2018, to highly adept and proficient third party laboratories.

High stability, efficiency, and reliability are the three principles of the Omnik R&D department, helping it retain the manufacturing of quality products

Omnik New Energy’s R&D department chiefly invests in developing new products or improving the current products. With such conviction and expertise, Omnik crafts superior quality products, maintaining the standard from the manufacturing phase to the delivery and final consumer phase.

Even on the manufacturing division, a crucial factor that sets the organization apart from the market is the conservation of quality of the products with reasonable cost maintenance. This is due to the company’s commitment to quality control as the incurred manufacturing costs are not compromised for cheaper components in the products. For instance, in its latest third-generation inverters, Omnik has integrated its Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) design with no jump-wire within the machine. This way, Omnik has reduced the risk of instability, along with manufactory costs.

With these features, Omnik caters to clients’ worldwide proves its unmatched product quality and reliability. The organization is committed to enhance and develop its products in a way that they are invariably equipped to support the users’ needs as well as to cater to their future requirements. In addition, Omnik invests in smart solutions to create interactive inverters through the internet and to control the energy distribution in a particular area. The Omnik product fulfils the needs of all types of distributed PV power stations and creates more compact structure of products worldwide.
