Sunny Boy 6000U
The leading grid-tied photovoltaic inverters in Europe and America
The SB6000U is SMA’s latest addition to the Sunny Boy family of utility interactive inverters. The SB6000U is designed for use
with PV, fuel cell, wind-turbine, hydro-turbine and micro-turbine technologies. The SB6000U follows SMA’s modular system
design philosophy for utility, commercial and residential PV installations from 6kW and up. Automatic sensing of the site utility
voltage makes installation on almost any utility system trouble-free. Just wire the inverter into any 208, 277 or 240 VAC system,
make one internal jumper setting and the SB6000U does the rest. The wide DC input voltage range allows connection to almost
any type or model of PV module. Our proven peak-power-point tracker results in maximum energy capture. The SB6000U uses
the same SMA communication accessories as every other inverter in the Sunny Boy family. Choose the system package that
best suits your needs. SMA offers a variety of hardware and software solutions from low cost wireless monitoring, to complex
data acquisition systems that integrate large numbers of inverters with external sensors to networked PC’s and the internet.

5-year comprehensive warranty standard
Rugged NEMA 4X stainless steel enclosure standard
Exceptional reliability and energy capture ratio
Easy to install three-point mounting system
Comprehensive communications and data collection options
SMA’s modular string inverter design is expandable to virtually any size system
The SMA Sunny Boy inverter, the most popular grid-tied photovoltaic inverter in
Europe, is now UL 1741 Listed and available in North America. Sunny Boy’s exsten-
sive track record in some of the world’s most demanding markets has made it a
favorite among PV professionals everywhere. Over 250,000 Sunny Boy inverters
have been installed worldwide. Superior design, rock-solid German engineering
and exceptional real-world efficiency have made Sunny Boy the top choice for
American solar designers.
Sunny Boy’s unsurpassed reliability and efficiency are the result of SMA’s manufacturing philosophy that combines simple design
with robust execution. SMA’s state-of-the-art maximum power point tracking performance results in greater real-world energy
capture than any other grid-tied inverter. Sunny Boy’s safety and reliability record is also exceptional due, in part, to the inver-
ter’s redundant grid monitoring and built-in ground fault detection and interruption protection. The inverter’s IGBT power stage
generates a nearly perfect sine wave with the lowest harmonic distortion in the industry and meets ultra-strict FCC EMC stan-
dards. SMA’s unique String Inverter technology makes future system expansion simple. SMA advanced communication options
are available to satisfy almost any application.
