SMA

String Inverter

SUNNY BOY 3000TL-US / 3800TL-US / 4000TL-US / 5000TL-US / 6000TL-US / 7000TL-US / 7700TL-US


Setting new heights in residential inverter performance.   Its transformerless design means high efficiency and reduced weight. Maximum power production is derived from wide input voltage and operating temperature ranges. Multiple MPP trackers and OptiTracâ„¢ Global Peak mitigate the effect of shade and allow for installation at challenging sites.

SolarEdge

The SolarEdge portfolio of products includes power optimizers, highly efficient PV inverters and a web portal for module-level monitoring and fault detection.


Key Features:

The SolarEdge DC-AC PV inverter is specifically designed to work with the SolarEdge power optimizers. Because MPPT and voltage management are handled separately for each module by the power optimizer, the inverter is only responsible for DC to AC inversion. Consequently, it is a less complicated, more cost effective, more reliable solar inverter with a standard 12 year warranty, extendable to 20 or 25 years. The fixed string voltage ensures operation at the highest efficiency at all times (>97% weighted efficiency) independent of string length and temperature.

Key features

Secure Power Supply (SPS)

The inverter is equipped with a secure power supply by means of which an external socket-outlet can be connected to the inverter. The socket-outlet provides current from the PV plant on  demand in the event of a grid failure.


Easy to Read Display

The display shows the current operating data of the inverter (e.g., current power, daily energy, total energy) as well as events or error messages. The power and energy are displayed as bars in the diagram.  Tap on the screen to light up the display.


Installation Location

The inverter is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
