SMA’s iconic line of Sunny Boy inverters has undergone a complete redesign of its popular models with Secure Power Supply. Ready to once again take over the North American residential PV market, the UL-listed Sunny Boy 5.0-US/6.0-US offers an increasingly robust feature set, allowing for reduced costs across all business operations and backed by the industry’s top-ranked service team.
The next generation Sunny Boy expands on its predecessor’s optimal design flexibility through multiple independent power point tracking channels, each featuring SMA’s proprietary OptiTrac Global Peak shade mitigation technology.
SMA’s popular Secure Power Supply now provides up to 2,000 watts of opportunity power, allowing operation of larger electrical loads like small refrigerators and space heaters and affording even more value to homeowners in the event of a daytime grid outage.
The latest Sunny Boy boasts an integrated Webserver and WLAN for direct, wireless interface with a smartphone, tablet or laptop computer. This communication platform provides state-of-the-art monitoring via Sunny Portal for system management and is compatible with SMA’s Installation Assistant to greatly reduce labor and commissioning time in the field.
Adding to the feature set is an integrated DC disconnect that reduces the costs associated with equipment stocking and order processing while speeding installation. The Sunny Boy 5.0-US/6.0-US also features a two-part enclosure concept for expedited servicing.
The Sunny Boy 5.0-US/6.0-US will be available for delivery in early 2016 through SMA’s North American distribution network. To locate an SMA Authorized Distributor, visit our Where to Buy page to learn more about each distribution partner.
SMA also plans to release additional powers classes, including the Sunny Boy 7.0/8.0-US later in 2016. Want to see more videos on the Sunny Boy 5.0-US/6.0-US? Watch our Tech Tips on commissioning the latest Sunny Boy and installing Secure Power Supply.
