SMA Sunny Island: the battery inverter for home and commercial applications
According to SMA the Sunny Island has been installed more than 70,000 times worldwide. With the new generation, installers and PV system operators benefit from an even more user-friendly battery inverter. The pros are: A lower system costs thanks to fewer components, faster installation and commissioning with a simple user interface and a warranty period extended to ten years, SMA said. Thanks to its integrated user interface and standard WLAN and Ethernet interfaces, the Sunny Island can be easily configured and monitored via smartphones or tablets.
The device has a maximum flexibility, from operation in remote off-grid areas to commercial or home energy management. It gives planners total freedom in the size and type of system, the battery and the type of energy generation. It works with self-consumption systems, battery backup systems and off-grid systems. The inverters are for retrofits or modular expansions of single- and three-phase systems in the one to 30 kilowatts range. And it can be expanded with SMA Multicluster-Technologie for systems in the 20 to 300 kilowatts range. (nhp)
