The new Sunny Boy

Now also available as a single tracker.

The same. Only better. For example as an add-on as 2500TL and 3000TL, each with single tracker. For simple PV rooftop systems with a power of 2.5 kW and higher or – thanks to reactive power capability – as a complement to existing PV plants.

More efficient

thanks to its 750 V DC input voltage

Electrifying detail: Thanks to the higher, 750 volt maximum DC input voltage, often times one less module string is needed because more modules can be switched on in a series.

  • Highly flexible design reduces cabling requirements
  • Maximum efficiency of 97 percent ensures top solar yield

Increased flexibility

with additional options

Greater flexibility in planning, implementing and yield. The new transformerless inverters Sunny Boy 2500TL / 3000TL with an MPP tracker for simple PV rooftop systems or the variants Sunny Boy 3000TL / 3600TL / 4000TL / 5000TL with multi-string technology.

  • Available as multi-string or single tracker
  • For complex or simple roof structures or as an add-on to existing PV plants

Easier

thanks to innovativ mounting concept

The wall mount has also been redesigned, and now allows you to attach the inverter easily by inserting it from above.

  • Fast and professional attachment, even on walls that are not completely straight
  • Popular anti-theft protection option available

Universally applicable

thanks to integrated grid management

Intelligent controls offer advantages in every situation: Thanks to its integrated grid management functions, the new Sunny Boy with Reactive Power Control offers universal deployment options and contributes to grid support.

  • Fewer disconnections from the grid thanks to voltage reduction via reactive power
  • Increased plant profitability

Multilingual

thanks to international graphics characters

The user-friendly graphic display speaks a clear language: The dot matrix display can perfectly present any letter or symbol.

  • Current display features Latin and Cyrillic letters as well as Japanese characters
  • Upcoming software updates for additional languages such as Thai, Hebrew and Arabic

Low noise

thanks to fanless operation

Sounds good: The new transformerless Sunny Boy works so efficiently that its cooling concept no longer requires the usual fan.

  • The device is nearly silent
  • Requires less service, saving time and money
