SUNNY ISLAND 6.0H / 8.0H

Sunny Island 6.0H / 8.0H

The all-rounder for high-performance
on-grid and off-grid solutions

The Sunny Island 6.0H/8.0H supports a wide range of on-grid and off-grid applications in the 3 to 25 kW range - from operation in remote off-grid areas to home energy management.

Furthermore, being a core element in the SMA Flexible Storage System for new and existing PV systems, it stores generated solar power and works with the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 to manage home and commercial energy consumption intelligently.

Its high protection class, wide temperature range and exceptional overload capacity provide the kind of reliability needed for off-grid use. Intelligent load and energy management keeps the system running even in critical situations.

SUNNY ISLAND 6.0H / 8.0H - Flexible

Flexible

The Sunny Island offers flexibility in terms of combination with other equipment, which means that the system can be configured precisely to meet the applicable power requirements.

  • Choice of battery: The Sunny Island is compatible with many well-known brands of lithium-ion battery and all lead-acid batteries.
  • Can be retrofitted for single- and three-phase systems
  • Increase system size at any time with SMA multicluster technology
SUNNY ISLAND 6.0H / 8.0H - intelligent

Intelligent

In the SMA Smart Home, the Sunny Home Manager 2.0, with the Sunny Island, takes control of intelligent management between the PV system, appliances and storage systems as well as regulates all energy flows.

SUNNY ISLAND 6.0H / 8.0H - robust

Robust

The Sunny Island is impervious to fine desert sand, high humidity in rainforests and salty mist in coastal regions as well as significant temperature fluctuations. It runs reliably under the most extreme conditions—without compromising its efficiency.

  • Outdoor installation possible thanks to IP 54
  • Wide temperature range
  • Can switch any appliance on

RS485 Piggy-Back

Plant monitoring and communication with Piggy-Back

The RS485 wiring for plant monitoring and communication allows functional lengths of up to 1200 meters. The Sunny WebBox collects all the data and informs you about the status of the PV plant. With Piggy-Back the data transmission is reliable even in interference-prone areas. Subsequent expansions are possible without problem thanks to the modular design principle.
