How much heat is generated by my Conext system?

Issue:
Questions about how much heat each part of a Conext system uses.

Product Line:
Conext Battery Based Inverters
Conext MPPT Solar Charge Controllers

Environment:
Battery based inverter in an enclosed environment.

Cause:
Proper system design needs to account for system cooling.

Resolution:
The power in BTUs per hour (BTU/hr) is equal to 3.412141633 times the power in watts (W):
P(BTU/hr) = 3.412141633 × P(W)

The efficiency and load of each unit can be used to calculate power loss in watts and then the above formula can be used to convert to BTU/hr.

Load (W) Efficiency Loss (W) Heat (BTU/hr)
6800 87% 884 3016
3000 94% 180 614
1500 95% 75 256

Conext SW 4024 NA
92% efficient at 4000W = 320W losses = 1092 BTU/hr

Conext MPPT 60 150
98% efficient at 48V battery at 3500W = 70W losses = 239 BTU/hr

Conext MPPT 80 600
96% efficient at 48V battery at 4800W = 192W losses = 655 BTU/hr
