Secure Power Supply
One of many unique features of the TL-US residential series is its innovative Secure Power Supply ability. With most grid-tied inverters, when the grid goes down, so does the solar-powered home. SMA’s solution provides daytime energy to a dedicated power outlet during prolonged grid outages, providing homeowners with access to power as long as the sun shines.
The Sunny Boy 3000TL-US / 4000TL-US / 5000TL-US / 6000TL-US are transformerless inverters, which means owners and installers benefit from high efficiency and lower weight. A wide input voltage range also means the inverters will produce high amounts of power under a number of conditions. Additionally, transformerless inverters have been shown to be among the safest string inverters on the market. An industry first, the TL-US series has been tested to UL 1741 and UL1699B and is in compliance with the arc fault requirements of NEC 2011.
Increased energy production
OptiTrac™ Global Peak, SMA’s shade tolerant MPPT tracking algorithm, quickly adjusts to changes in solar irradiation, which mitigates the effects of shade and results in higher total power output. And, with two MPP trackers, the TL-US series can ably handle complex roofs with multiple orientations or string lengths. An extended operating temperature range of -40 °F to +140 °F ensures power is produced in all types of climates and for longer periods of time than with most traditional string inverters.
As a transformerless inverter, the TL-US residential series is lighter in weight than it’s transformer-based counterparts, which makes lifting and transporting the new inverter easier than before. A new wall mounting plate features anti-theft security and makes hanging the inverter quick and easy. A simplified DC wiring concept allows the DC Disconnect to be used as a wire raceway, saving labor and materials.
Leading monitoring and control solutions
The new TL-US residential line features more than high performance and a large graphic display. The monitoring and control options provide users with an outstanding degree of flexibility. Integrated Zigbee®, a wireless communications standard often used for home energy management, and numerous wired options allows for a highly controllable inverter and one that can be monitored on Sunny Portal from anywhere on the planet via an Internet connection. Whether communicating through Zigbee®, RS485, or SMA’s new wired, plug-and-play WebConnect, installers can find an optimal solution to their monitoring needs.
Canadian Solar CS6P-255P is a robust 60 cell module which makes them ideal for this grid-tied system. Canadian Solar's meticulous design and product techniques ensures a high-year, long term performance for every panel produced which they back with a 25 year guarantee.

Additional Hardware That May Be Required
Blue Pacific Solar has provided all of the main parts you will need for your kit. (See "What's On The Truck") Roof racks and roof rack attachment options or a ground rack system are site specific options that are not included with the base package. Additionally some additional items sourced from your local hardware store that your may need to purchase are: Conduit, appropriately sized electrical wire from the array, some fasteners, sealant, grounding rod, junction box at the edge of the array where you will make the transition to conduit, an AC combiner box if you have more than one string and a AC disconnect within 10' of the main panel which may be required in some local jurisdictions.
Ideally suited for online monitoring of small solar systems with a maximum number of up to four inverters: Webconnect provides free access to Sunny Portal without additional data logger – easily via an existing Internet access and a DSL router. After the simple installation of the inverter interface which is optionally available or already integrated at the factory, you can commission the Webconnect. Basically, it is plug and play. Once configured, key system data can be accessed and displayed in a clear format whenever you need it. Moreover, automatic product updates ensure that the device firmware is always up-to-date.
Apart from the Webconnect data module or the Webconnect functions integrated into the inverter, you only need an Internet connection and a DSL router.

SMA 7140W Grid-Tied Solar Kit Residential & Commercial PV Made Easy
SMA 7140W Grid-Tied Solar Kit IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS: It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that all products are installed and operated in accordance with local and national building codes as specific by the NEC (National Electric Code), UBC (Uniform Building Code) or IBC (International Building Code) and local utility company policy. These codes may vary from city to city and county to county. All Grid-tied solar installations should be permitted and inspected, where required, by the local inspection authority in the same manner as other equivalent electrical systems. It is always a good idea to contract with a local licensed electrician to at least do the final electrical connection of your SMA 7140W Grid-Tied Solar Kit from the AC disconnect to your home utility breaker box. Some local permitting authorities require that a licensed electrician do all the wiring from the rack to the utility interconnect.
Additional Safety Instructions; Perform all electrical installations in accordance with all applicable local electrical codes and the National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70. Be aware that only qualified personnel should install SMA 3060W Grid-Tied Solar Kit. Before installing or using the inverters and all equipment, please read all instructions and cautionary markings in the technical description. Connect the inverter to the utility grid only after receiving prior approval from the electrical utility company. Danger to life from electric shock due to high voltages in the inverter High voltages that can cause fatal electric shocks are present in the live components of the inverter. Do not open the inverter. All work on the inverter (e.g. repairs, modifications) may only be carried out by a qualified person. Do NOT disconnect the solar panel from the system without first removing power.
This SMA 7140W Grid-Tied Solar Kit is an affordable do-it-yourself (DIY) high quality solution for your home or businesses energy independence.
