Product Description

From the developers at APsystems, APsmart offers state-of-the-art PV module rapid shutdown devices (RSD-S-PLC) for Canada, ideal for any new or existing string or central inverter system, and meeting Canadian Rapid shutdown requirements on rooftops CEC 64-218 as well as U.S. NEC 2017&2020 690.12. Leveraging APsystems’ proven expertise in module-level power electronics, APsmart solutions are powered by ASIC with internal IP and integrated with TI chips at the system-level application.


  • Meets Canadian CEC 2018 64-218 requirements
  • Meets US NEC 2017 & 2020 (690.12) requirements
  • SunSpec Rapid Shutdown certified
  • cCSAus certified
  • RSD ASIC Chip designed using APsystems’ IP with redundancy topology
  • Highly integrated SoC System on a chip design for lowest component count.
  • No DC:DC power conversion for the solar power. Therefore much higher MTBF compared to optimizer based systems.
  • Small and light, direct solar module frame mounted with integrated clips
  • Longer daily module operating period (15 ~ 30 minutes) due to its low minimum operation voltage (8V)
  • Does not interfere with global MPP tracking algorithms and shade mitigation algorithms e.g. SMA ShadeFix
  • Very Low power consumption
  • Eliminates Unwanted AFCI Nuisance Tripping, approved and tested by SMA and Fronius
  • RSD-S-PLC Noise Spectrum Density is far away (isolated) from typical AFCI noise patterns
