Upgraded inverter solution 

15 Sep 2019

SMA’s new Sunny Boy offers the ability to integrate SMA’s new TS4-R-F module-level retrofit device, a SunSpec compatible solution that increases safety and delivers cost-effective, module-level shutdown. The SunSpec transmitter is factory integrated. It represents a fast and easy way to comply with NEC 2017 680.12, which is now being enforced. Additional safety and reliability are afforded with SMA’s advanced AFCI technology. The company has certified to the new UL Standard 1699B-2008 allowing integrators and system owners to benefit from increased uptime and production as well as confidence that AFCI lab results will match field performance. Power production is maximized with OptiTrac Global Peak maximum power point tracking technology, providing string-level optimization and greater overall system value. Granular string-level reporting including voltage, current, power, and DC energy also give system owners a new level of insight. Coupled with the Sunny Boy’s integrated wall mount bracket that accelerates installation, the new inverter represents a fast and effective solution for shade mitigation. In addition to compliance with NEC 2017, the new inverters are compliant with California Rule 21 Phase 2 and UL 1741. The new Sunny Boy-US also offers simple, selectable country codes for region-specific smart inverter functionality in areas such as Hawaii, California, and the Northeast. SMA offers an optional cellular modem and revenue grade meter along with their Secure Power Supply function. Homeowners can access up to 2000W of daytime opportunity power. Secure Power Supply is easily installed, and works with the company’s TS4-R-S and TS4-R-O module-level technologies.
