SMA
Sunny Boy 6000U
6kW Grid Tie Inverter

Now available in North America. Sunny Boys extensive track record in some of the worlds most demanding markets has made it the favorite among PV professionals everywhere. Over 250,000 Sunny Boy inverters have been installed throughout the world. Superior design, rock-solid German engineering and exceptional real-world efficiency have made Sunny Boy inverters the top choice for American solar designers.

The Sunny Mini Central 6000 provides the advantages of a transformer inverter combined with all monitoring and protection equipment (ENS) required for reliable operation of a PV-plant without separate disconnection unit.

  • Exceptional reliability, efficiency and energy capture ratio 5-year comprehensive warranty

  • Rugged stainless steel outdoor enclosure standard

  • Easy to install wall mount bracket system

  • Comprehensive SMA communications and data collection options

  • SMAs modular commercial inverter design is expandable to virtually any size system

The SB6000U is designed for use with PV, fuel cell, wind-turbine, hydro-turbine and micro-turbine technologies.

The SB6000U follows SMAs modular system design philosophy for utility, commercial and residential PV installations from 6kW and up. Automatic sensing of the site utility voltage makes installation trouble-free on almost any utility system. Just wire the inverter into any 208, 277 or 240 VAC system, make one internal jumper setting and the SB6000U does the rest.

The wide DC input voltage range allows connection to almost any type or model of PV module. Proven peak-power-point tracker results in maximum energy capture. The SB6000U uses the same SMA communication accessories as every other inverter in the Sunny Boy family. SMA offers a variety of hardware and software solutions from low cost wireless monitoring, to complex data acquisition systems that integrate large numbers of inverters with external sensors to networked PCs and the internet.
