Thanks to its integrated web interface for easy commissioning via a smartphone or tablet and SMA Smart Connected service, this inverter offers true ease and comfort for PV system operators and installers.
New: With its integrated RS485 interface, the TS4-R module optimizers can be easily added into the system, with all communication and monitoring facilitated through the inverter.
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.
The Sunny Boy has it all, with established product features such as SMA ShadeFix and SMA Smart Connected that are now supplemented with integrated TS4-R communication for module optimization. Thanks to this, even shade on the module is no problem. The SMA ShadeFix integrated shade management system ensures maximum yields in light shade. For large amounts of shade or complex roof structures, TS4-R module optimizers can be installed easily and selectively for maximum yields.
The free SMA Smart Connected service analyzes inverter operation, immediately informs the installer of irregularities and offers recommended solutions to ensure maximum system availability. Operators and installers can keep an eye on the system at all times via the SMA monitoring portals. Thanks to the TS4-R module optimizer, it is even possible to monitor every single module upon request.
Partial shade on a PV array is sometimes unavoidable. If not correctly managed, it can affect the performance of your entire system. But with the patented SMA ShadeFix function in your Sunny Boy, the effect of partial shade is minimised allowing your PV system to operate as though there was no shade.
For maximum energy generation in partial shading application, you can add the TS4-R Optimizer. This allows the maximum solar generation from each panel and also gives you full visibility of individual PV module performance via Sunny Portal.
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.
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.
SMA Smart Connected is available in AU, AT, BE, CH, DE, ES, FR, IT, LU, NL, UK
