Microcare Kaco Single Phase Grid Tie Limiter

The Microcare Single-Phase KACO Grid Tied Limiter (GTL) is compatible with KACO single-phase Grid Tied Inverters only. The Limiter is to be used where feeding back into the grid is not allowed or not profitable to the user. The KACO single-phase Grid Tied Limiter will insure that the KACO Grid Tied Inverter will only provide as much power as the load is using at any given time.

Product Description


The GTL will prevent the KACO Grid Tied Inverter from exporting power back into the Grid. The GTL will measure the power required by the load and notify the KACO Grid Tied Inverter to limit the power generated to equal that of the AC Load. Because no extra power is generated no power can be exported.

LED Legend

  • Power: (Flashing) Green LED, shows power is present.
  • COMMS: Green LED, shows that there is communication with the Grid Tied Inverter through the Comms Connection.
  • Limit: Yellow LED, shows that the Grid Tied Limiter is restricting the power produced by the Grid Tied Inverter.

1/3 Household Power still imported from GridReview by Johann
Whether this is by design or due to a compatibility problem with some older Microcare 5K/W Inverters, it seems that one third of all power is still drawn from the grid.
I would have expected the GTL to only consume a fraction of the load, but whenever I increased the household load, my Grid load has also increased by one third.
Even at full sun, with 16 x 230W Tenesol panels, the GTL still does not put all the energy generated to good use by minimizing the Grid load.

As a Prepaid client, I still prefer this option as to investing R6000 into a SmartMeter that could or could not be supported by my local council.

On a positive note, there is no fluctuations in power when the switch is made between Solar & Grid. (Posted on 23/12/2013)
