Azuray Technologies Inc. and Renhe Photovoltaic Technology Co. Ltd merged technologies to maximize solar energy generation. The two companies created a device that seamlessly integrates solar power electronics into the junction box of a solar panel to maximize solar energy generation, producing up to 25 percent improvement in energy harvest.

The makers integrated Azuray's Maximum Power Point Tracking DC-to-DC converter electronics with Renhe's photovoltaic junction boxes to create the Azuray AP300 power optimizer. The designers say that the PV junction box solution aims to deliver more solar power generation from any type of crystalline solar panel which may be underperforming due to mismatch, shade or other real world conditions.

The new Azuray AP300 power optimizer enhances energy harvest and utilizes power-line communications to track and enhance solar panel performance. The Azuray AP300 operates with the Azuray ACM300 communications gateway to bring monitoring and safety properties and features for installation and grid power disruption.
