Production line of Silent Power Off-Grid Cabinets

How it is made

Our Electrical Engineers have over 35 years experience in the assembly of electrical panels, industrial automation and packaged electronic products. Safety and quality are paramount features in all products, we use recognised brands for the electrical protection devices such as ABB, Gave-Electro, CITEL, Hager and Socomec.

Our skilled and extremely experienced Senior Engineering is transferring knowledge to the new generation of technicians.

Silent Power cabinet is the first solar photovoltaic cabinet that is delivered fully assembled with all the protection and monitoring devices around a combined inverter / charger unit. Our design team simplified solar technology and lower the cost of turnkey solution making the off grid electrification, simple, affordable and easy to use.

The first generation was fabricated in 2018 since in the first 6 months, we deployed over 100 cabinets around the world. The range covers 24V and 48V battery based off grid systems with utility or diesel generators to act as a back up. The output power is 5kW and 10kW at 230VAC pure sinewave.

Serviceable and Maintenance Free

There are many solar inverters in the market but only a few solution can be serviced or repaired at very low cost if something will go wrong. The whole concept might look simple and basic but the philosophy of our system is to keep it that way to enable the users to repair or service their system without spending a fortune.

Silent power is made to serve appliacations from 5kW AC and 48V batteries. The choice of batteries is quite wide since the system is ready to accept lithium ion , lead acid and gel batteries.
