With its reduced weight, the Sunny Boy can be installed quickly while taking up minimal space. The Sunny Boy can be commissioned quickly via smartphone or tablet thanks to its web interface.
- One-person installation due to low weight of 17.5 kg
- Compact design through minimum space requirements
- Quick installation thanks to external connections
- Intuitive commissioning and local monitoring via a smartphone or tablet
Intelligent optimization of energy yield
Established product features and integrated software solutions will provide yield optimization throughout the system’s entire service life. Even in shading. SMA ShadeFix is a proprietary inverter software that optimizes energy yield in nearly every situation. SMA Smart Connected inverter monitoring offers enhanced safety by detecting errors at an early stage and automatically reporting them to the installer.
- SMA ShadeFix is an integrated software for yield optimization
- Dynamic active power limitation means direct use of excess energy and less power from the grid
- Automatic inverter monitoring via SMA Smart Connected
- System data visualization via Sunny Portal and Sunny Places
- Local visualization via Smart Inverter Screen
Flexibly expandable anytime
With the Sunny Boy, PV system operators can ensure that their PV system always generates maximum yields. If greater use of solar power is made in your own home, intelligent energy management and SMA storage solutions can be added at any time to systems with the Sunny Boy.
Investment Security Included
With SMA Smart Connected, SMA offers free and automatic inverter monitoring that helps installers to provide customers with a quick, targeted service. If an inverter fails, SMA proactively informs the PV system owner and the installer. In this way, PV system owners and installers benefit from minimized diagnosis and downtime. If it is necessary to replace the inverter, SMA sends a replacement device fast and free of charge.
SMA Smart Connected - How it Works
Activation of SMA Smart Connected
During registration of the system in Sunny Portal, you, as the installer, activate SMA Smart Connected and thus start automatic inverter monitoring by SMA.
Automatic inverter monitoring
SMA automatically checks the inverter for anomalies around-the-clock during operation. You and your customers benefit from SMA's many years of experience.
After a fault has been diagnosed and analyzed, SMA informs the installer and PV system operator immediately by email. Everyone is thus optimally prepared for the troubleshooting process ensuring minimum downtimes and reducing outlay and costs. The regular power reports also provide the installer with valuable information about the overall system.
If a replacement device is necessary, SMA automatically supplies a new inverter within one to three days of the fault diagnosis. As the installer, you can contact the PV system operator of your own accord and replace the inverter immediately.
SMA compensates PV system owners if the replacement inverter cannot be delivered within three days.
