Enphase Energy is a leading provider of solar energy products, specializing in microinverters and energy storage systems. The company's flagship product, the Enphase Microinverter System, converts DC power from solar panels into AC power for use in homes and businesses. This innovative technology allows for greater energy efficiency, flexibility, and reliability compared to traditional string inverter systems. Enphase also offers energy storage solutions, such as the Encharge battery storage system, that allow customers to store excess solar energy for use during times of high energy demand or when the sun is not shining. With a commitment to sustainability and innovation, Enphase is a trusted brand for solar energy solutions.
Enphase ENERGY ENVOY Communications Gateway with Ethernet Bridge pair with lifetime Enlighten monitoring ENV-120-01
The Enphase Envoy Communications Gateway is the networking hub connecting every module and microinverter in your solar array to the internet.
The Envoy uses advanced powerline communications technology to connect to each microinverter without additional wiring or wireless configuration. System owners can easily check the status of their solar system using the Envoy’s LCD display, or get more detailed information through the Enlighten website.
For commercial installations, multiple Envoy devices are used in combination with Line Communications Filters (LCF) to separate networking domains across the site. Envoys are recommended for all instances where electrical parameters need to be adjusted, such as in Mexico.
- Plug & Play setup
- Communicates over existing electrical wires

The Enphase Energy Microinverter System improves energy harvest, increases reliability, and dramatically simplifies design, installation and management of solar power systems.
The Enphase System includes the microinverter, the Envoy Communications GatewayTM, and Enlighten®, Enphase’s monitoring and analysis software.
The Enphase Microinverter
Enphase has pioneered a new approach to managing solar power that makes solar systems smarter and more efficient.
Traditionally, solar panels are connected together in series circuits fed into a single, central inverter device. This means that one inverter controls tens, hundreds or even thousands of solar panels as if they are one unit operating at the same power level. This approach reduces the overall system efficiency and limits the available information about individual panel health.
Enphase replaces these large central inverters with small micro-electronics that attach to each solar panel. These devices, known as microinverters, allow each panel to operate independently, leading to significant improvements in energy production and adding a new layer of intelligence throughout the system.
The Enphase System
Each Microinverter integrates with advanced networking technology and web-based software to enable new levels of intelligence and connectivity in the solar array.
Specifically, the Enphase Microinverter System consists of the following components:
The Microinverter that connects to each solar module and converts DC power to grid-compliant AC power
The Envoy Communications Gateway that networks with each microinverter and transmits performance information to the internet
The Enlighten software where Enphase customers can monitor and manage their solar power systems 24 hours a day
Older version was called IEMU-03 supported only 250 microinverters, while this version, ENV-120-01, supports up to 500 microinverters.
