SMA ShadeFix

The next level of PV performance optimization

SMA ShadeFix optimization is a proprietary, integrated inverter capability that optimizes the yield of PV systems in every situation – even in shading.

Yield optimization directly from the inverter

PV Systems are generally installed in scenarios where they can convert the largest amount of sunlight into electric current. However, it is not always possible to prevent dormer windows, chimneys, trees and other obstructions from casting shadows on PV modules. This reduces energy yield and lengthens a system owner’s payback period.

This is why SMA has developed a superior optimization technique – SMA ShadeFix. And the best thing about this solution is that SMA ShadeFix optimization is integrated into SMA inverters at no extra cost.

Greater energy production

in most situations and over the entire lifetime of the system. Even in shading.

Enhanced safety

due to fewer components. This keeps the risk of failure to a minimum.

Improved quality & service life

thanks to field proven SMA products and automatic inverter monitoring.

Greater sustainability

through efficient complete solutions and high recyclability.

SMA ShadeFix

Fewer components, enhanced safety and a longer service life. Maximum sustainability.

Enhanced safety due to fewer components

Why do we use integrated solutions at SMA? Because as the number of components in the entire system increases, so does the failure rate of the PV system. This is why you should never install more devices than necessary.

The benefits are clear:

  • Less work involved in installation and planning
  • No additional electronics on the roof
  • No unnecessary risk of fires and accidents
  • Faster service thanks to SMA Smart Connected

Highly sustainable due to first-class complete solutions

There are, of course, many reasons to an efficient system design: effective material use, low transportation costs, fewer service calls required – these are only a few examples. As an innovative company, we are always thinking one step ahead in order to combine long-term business success with environmental protection and social responsibility.

  • High material efficiency and durable products
  • Low component count improves recyclability and sustainability
  • CO2 reduction thanks to the efficient solution


Why and How SMA Shadefix achieves the highest energy production

For all PV installers or solar system owners, our whitepaper unveils the results of the results of a study conducted by the University of Southern Denmark that compares SMA’s advanced PV optimization technology relative to other forms of optimization under a variety of unshaded and shaded conditions.

You’ll read key findings about:

  • Power output

  • Lifetime energy harvest

  • Reliability and maintenance

  • Fire and installer safety

  • Safety and code compliance in Europe and US
