Brief review of SMA

Choosing the right solar inverter is one of the most important aspects of buying a new solar power system for your home or business. A solar inverter is one of the most important elements of the solar electric power system. It converts the variable direct current (DC) output of a photovoltaic (PV) solar panel into alternating 240V current (AC). This AC electricity then can be fed into your home to operate your appliances. If you are in search of an inverter manufacturer, which has had 35 years of solid experience and authentic craftsmanship with sleek and invincible energy capacity, then SMA, a company based in Niestetal, Germany is one such solar brand to enquire for because they are one of the top 2 solar inverter manufacturers with top-notch quality string inverters.

SMA’s flagship inverter named Sunny Boy 5.0 shows a maximum efficiency of 97%. This efficiency has helped establish its place in the solar industry. Another key factor which has helped establish SMA’s reputation is their quality systems and the reliable warranties offered by them. SMA inverters usually come with a five-year warranty with an additional option to extend it to 10,15, and 20 years. Bear in mind, any issue related to physical damage, alteration or unauthorized perpetration can lead to automatic termination of the warranty. Any product related to defects or on-site shipment will be borne by the warranty cost.

SMA’s extensive customer support due to their location at the heart of Sydney, NSW in Australia also plays a huge part in maintaining the trust and reliability of this solar inverter brand. SMA has a dedicated team which is full of expert people who are conversant with their roles and are available to guide you and direct you with helpful instructions if needed.

SMA also offers a service to remotely monitor your solar inverters, should you encounter any faulty device and thereby saving on labour cost and time.

Additionally, Sunnyboy offers a battery management system which is a unique feature in Sunny Boy storage 3.7/5.0/6.0. These are not the integrated battery systems, but rather they can accommodate up to three high voltage batteries to supply the essential electricity in the case of blackout or grid failure. These batteries are the separate units, which is connected to the hybrid inverter so that you can add more batteries in the future without improvising with one internal battery. It also has the battery backup operation of up to 8kW and integrated secure power supply function.

SMA also offers a unique software to help monitor low performance when needed. This sophisticated software offered by SMA is called Shadefix which tracks down the affected or shaded solar panels on your roof and then diverts the generated solar energy to the right path to reach your home appliances. In fact, the TS4-R optimizer is used, along with Shadefix to pass some current into the shaded panels and brings some power back to the inverter for more AC production.

In conclusion, Sunny Boy compared to other models of solar inverters available in the Australian market for home, is one of the most sought after solar inverters manufactured by SMA. It has a wide ranging capacity. Another great feature that makes this solar inverter brand highly favourable is its ability to detect any faults in the inverter with a self-diagnosis option.
