Yes. Very interested myself. Would be perfect addition to my SUN-1000 inverters
Wondering if this is a spin-off from the Voltronic line of inverters or someone else.?.?
Unable to find a similar line with that model name/etc..

So this unit would be like a grid tie with limiting so you don't inject power back to the grid?
I don't find that anywhere in the PDF.
With a 40A breaker to the unit I dont assume that the AC input comes from the grid and it becomes the regulator of what you pull from the grid and its output goes to the distribution panel.
In other words it is the middle man between the grid and you.
Or is it more like a GTIL with the "Hybrid" function of being a UPS. Grid power (on) supplements the house up to its max rating and if you need more than it can supply it allows the grid to supplement and also does not return excess power to grid. Grid is down or (off) GTIL anti islanding turns off the GTIL and it becomes a true inverter running off of battery/solar and when grid turns back on switches back to GTIL status. It would have to internally switch the mains off during a power outage to keep from back feeding.
Just wondering.

Wow, so they finally did it... I still won't believe it until I see someone with product in hand.

Up to 3 units can be stacked for 15kW. There's no mention of support for N+G bonding in the documentation though.

So to get 10kW, you would need 2x inverter for $2340 plus a parallel kit for $77 for a total of $2417. That's $150 cheaper than the AIMS 10kW and you get two additional MPPT chargers with it. Hmmm....

Dito we will see.

But if that is the case and it does all the goodies
It will replace just about everything I got now. MPPTs, Inverter and my Grid tie inverter limited.
Should I put all those eggs into one basket?

I would probably still keep the MPPTs separate for heat reasons and my own personal "like to separate out functions" opinion. It would also be good to see some testing done because I know Peter said his PIP inverters get very hot at half load and you pretty much can't run 100% load. That has me wondering, even with 2 units totaling 10kW, how much of it is realistically usable?

Another Dito!!

I am of the same persuasion If one module fails on this unit then you are down and out.
Not so with separate units all with their specialized function. In case of my MPPTs I have a couple of spares just in case.
For my Emergency Inverter I have all the replacement boards and mosfets in stock and soon I will have 2 GTIL 1000s. The max load my house uses at any given moment in time is probably 4kW. Mostly it idles around 200W to 400W. I will have a better handle on that figure after the ground thaws and I can get my IoTaWatt hooked up completely.

Sounds promising but was hoping the idle watts would be more efficient.
