The SB5000US has an integrated DC disconnect that makes installation more cost-effective. This inverter is field configurable for positive ground systems, this makes it more versatile than other grid tie inverters.
The included "auto-sensing technology" makes the SMA 5000US more flexible and easier to install than ever. It will automatically detect whether the output voltage is 208VAC or 240VAC.
