SUNNY BOY 2000HF-US

SUNNY BOY 2000HF-US / 2500HF-US / 3000HF-US

Pretty good yields

This is the new generation of inverters designed for the countries with UL listing – packed full of the latest SMA technology, these devices provide the highest yields for transformer inverters of this power class. The slim enclosure allows for perfect fitting of the Sunny Boy in walls of wooden-frame houses. At the same time, installation is made even simpler due to automatic grid type detection¹, plug-in PV array grounding with GFDI and reduced weight. The wide input voltage range from 175 to 600 V gives you extraordinary flexibility for your plant design. And the modern graphic display and the wireless Bluetooth communication system make the device highly user friendly.
