Part II: Maximize and Protect In the first installment of this series, we focused on MPP voltage. This post will ...
The updated CORE1 series includes two new power classes as well as a host of new features across the entire product line including:
The Sunny Tripower CORE1 is the world’s first free-standing string inverter for decentralized rooftop and ground-based PV systems as well as covered parking spaces. The groundbreaking new design allows reductions in installation time of up to 60% and, at the same time, lowers the total cost of ownership (OPEX).
The CORE1 is the third generation in the successful Sunny Tripower product family and is revolutionising the world of commercial inverters with its innovative design. SMA engineers developed an inverter that combines a unique design with an innovative installation method to significantly reduce installation time and provide all target groups with a maximum return on investment.
From delivery and installation to operation, the Sunny Tripower CORE1 generates widespread savings in logistics, labor, materials and services. With integrated Wi-Fi access for fast commissioning, up-to-date plug-and-play communication and smart grid support functions, PV installations are quicker and easier to complete than ever before.

SMA’s SunSpec certified rapid shutdown device offers the fastest, most reliable, and safest method for complying with NEC 2017 690.12. Using far fewer components than more complex alternatives, SMA’s SunSpec certified shutdown device is a plug-and-play solution that operates on a simple powerline signal, reducing commissioning requirements. The device operates on the industry standard SunSpec rapid shutdown signal, improving performance and reliability.
Cutting-edge configuration and communication with the SMA online assistant and SMA Web browser access via WLAN with any mobile device. Two Ethernet ports with ModBus® TCP (including SunSpec) ensure smooth communication even in large-scale PV plants.
SMA Data Manager M is the ideal professional system interface for electric utility companies, service technicians and PV system operators. In combination with the new Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS, the Data Manager M optimizes communication, monitoring and control of PV systems with up to 50 SMA devices.
SMA Modbus interfaces provide support for the industry standard protocol for communications between electronic devices. Modbus interfaces enable the integration of SMA products with products from other suppliers for system monitoring and control.
SMA offers surge protection device (SPD) modules for inverter AC and DC connections in either Type 2 or Type 1+2 protection levels to protect the inverter from sudden voltage surges and spikes caused by lightning or grid switching events. These SPD modules are completely field serviceable and may be added or replaced at any time during the PV system service life to help reduce costly downtime due to the damaging effects of transient events.
With the SMA Sensor Module external weather sensors for solar irradiation, ambient and module temperature, and wind speed can be connected directly to the inverter, eliminating the need for a separate weather station datalogger and enclosure. Sensor data logged by the inverter is available in SMA Sunny Portal and through the inverter's Modbus protocol interfaces.
The Universal Mounting System (UMS) provides a simple, efficient solution for mounting the Sunny Tripower CORE1 inverter to a wall or other fixed structure. Assembles quickly and provides a secure platform for mounting the inverter.
The external antenna extension kit increases the inverter's WLAN range to overcome site conditions which inhibit wireless signals and to ensure reliable wireless communications with the network router.
The RS485 Module is the ideal solution for expansion of existing PV systems that already use RS485 communication. The RS485 module provides compatibility to the SMA RS485 fieldbus communication for reliable connection to a data logger with a cable length of up to 1,200 meters.
