SMA Technology AG is looking to launch its Sunny Tripower 3.0-6.0 in Australia, its first inverter to directly integrate TS4-R module-level power electronics (MLPE) communication for more cost effectiveness as well as for easier commissioning and online monitoring.
The new three-phase string inverter is SMA’s latest product in its portfolio for residential solutions, which is said to be lighter and more compact than all previous three-phase SMA inverters and able to cut installation time by roughly 30%.
With the new product, the company will be looking to further establish its foothold in the Aussie market. SMA has been present Down Under for 20 years, and earlier this year it announced its partnership with Melbourne’s Wilson Transformer Company to develop a central inverter solution specifically for Australian utility scale projects.
“Australia has become one of the key PV markets for SMA. We have seen the increasing market demand for products and solutions with more power, lower cost as well as easier installation and commissioning,” said Nick Morbach, executive vice president of SMA’s Residential and Commercial business unit.
