PRESS RELEASE | Australian company Redflow announced its new ZCell battery is compatible with the SP PRO battery inverter from Melbourne-based electronics manufacturer Selectronic Australia.

ZCell is a 10kWh zinc-bromine flow battery that can ‘timeshift’ solar power from day to night, store off-peak power for peak demand periods and support off-grid systems. Redflow last month announced its first ZCell installers, providing national coverage for quoting and installing ZCell-based energy storage systems.

Redflow undertook extensive testing of the Selectronic SP PRO battery inverter at its Adelaide battery integration and testing lab to ensure it works with ZCell, a process simplified by the purpose-built ZCell battery management system.

Selectronic is a 52-year-old Australian company that designs and manufactures battery inverters which are sold in Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. The SP PRO is a smart multi-mode inverter that suits both off-grid and solar hybrid (grid-connect) installations for residential, commercial and industrial projects.

Selectronic CEO Rod Scott welcomed the news of the SP PRO compatibility with ZCell. “ZCell is a unique battery from a capacity point of view, recycling and longevity,” he said. “We see a good fit between our reliable long-lasting battery inverters and ZCell.”

Redflow CEO Simon Hackett said Selectronic was a very popular battery inverter among its installers. “The SP PRO is a wonderfully flexible inverter that can be configured to fit any energy storage requirement, whether on or off-grid, across residential or commercial applications,” he said. “Selectronic is a much loved product in the Australian energy storage industry and we are delighted to certify that the SP PRO works with ZCell.”
