The SMA Sunny Boy inverters are engineered for the American markets that require UL listing and automatic grid detection. All SMA American inverters have automatic grid detection and a integrated DC disconnect switch which simplifies installation while ensuring safety and saves considerable installation time. SMA inverters feature galvanic insolation and can be used with all types of mono and polycrystalline solar panels. The die-cast aluminum enclosure with the OptiCool active temperature management system guarantees the highest yields possible and a long service life even under extreme conditions. Forced cooling significantly extends the life and performance of an inverter over convection cooled inverters.
SMA Webconnect (1 - Included / SWDM-US-10)
Webconnect is ideally suited for online monitoring of small PV plants with up to four inverters. It provides free access to Sunny Portal with existing Internet access and a DSL router, without an additional data logger. Webconnect commissioning is plug and play after the simple installation of the inverter interface, which is optionally available or integrated at the factory. Once configured, key plant data can be accessed and displayed in a clear format whenever needed via Sunny Portal and automatic product updates ensure that the device firmware is always up to date

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 8540W 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 8540W 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 8540W Kit is an affordable grid-tie solar do-it-yourself (DIY) high quality solution for your home or businesses energy independence.
