“These new inverters include all of the innovative features of the Sunny Boy, but with the ability to be deployed in colder regions,” said Jurgen Krehnke, president of SMA Canada. “This directly addresses the needs of Canadian solar professionals, who require hardened devices to accommodate projects in even the most difficult climates.”
The Sunny Boy 5000-US, 6000-US, 7000-US and 8000-US inverters are certified to UL and CSA standards and feature class-leading efficiencies up to 97 percent. Their longevity is enhanced via SMA’s patented OptiCool™ active temperature-
Installers can utilize SMA’s Sunny Design software to configure a PV system with the Sunny Boy 5000-US, 6000-US, 7000-US and 8000-US models. Once the project is complete, SMA’s advanced data collection and communication devices, such as the Sunny WebBox data logger and Sunny Beam wireless desktop monitor, can be used to help installers track system performance. Data can be transmitted by cable or through the integrated Bluetooth® wireless communication system to the SMA Sunny Portal, the world’s largest Web platform for monitoring, managing and presenting photovoltaic systems.
