SUNNY CENTRAL 500CP-US 600V

SUNNY CENTRAL 500CP-US 600V

Cost-optimized solution for commercial and utility-scale projects

The Sunny Central CP-US series delivers outstanding performance. In combination with an external transformer, the Sunny Central CP-US can be connected to commercial building power or any utility grid. The UL listed CP-US also supports grid stability through leading grid management functions including Low Voltage Ride Through. Both the outdoor enclosure featuring OptiCool™ active temperature management and a separate connection area ensure simple installation while maximizing returns. With peak efficiency greater than 98 percent, it outperforms all other inverters in its class. The Sunny Central CP-US can also be integrated with the Power Plant Controller as well as the Medium-Voltage Power Platform for utility-scale applications.
