SMA 5040W Kit With Secure Power Supply
Solar systems are required by code to disconnect from the electrical grid when the power goes out. Traditionally, that meant your system would deliver zero power to your home, but not anymore. SMA has pioneered the first Secure Power Supply (SPS), which will continue to deliver power from your solar system to your home when the sun is shining, even when the power goes out. A dedicated wall outlet is wired directly to the inverter, providing security and ensuring power is available when it’s needed most.
Sunny Boy 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 Sunny Boy 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 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.

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 5040W Grid-Tied Solar Kit Setting new heights in residential inverter performance
SMA 5040W Canadian 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 5040W 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 this 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 5040W Canadian Solar Kit is an affordable grid-tie solar do-it-yourself (DIY) high quality solution for your home or businesses energy independence.
