Features

The Sunny Central 500CP Is Economical

  • Optiprotect ensures maximum plant availability
  • Outdoor-rated enclosure allows for direct field deployment

Efficient

  • Full nominal power at ambient temperatures up to 50° C
  • 110% rated power at ambient temperatures up to 25° C

Flexible

  • Configurable DC voltage range
  • Optional: Extended input voltage range up to 1,100 V

Reliable

  • Safe and easy installation due to separate connection area
  • Powerful grid management functions (including LVRT)

The Sunny Central CP series maximizes project investment returns through innovative technology and time-saving features. Optiprotect integrates string failure detection into the inverter and centrally monitors up to 1,600 module strings without requiring conventional communication wiring in the field. The self-learning monitoring system significantly simplifies commissioning. Up to 32 motor-driven, adjustable DC inputs ensure maximum plant availability. And, thanks to its compact and weatherproof enclosure, the inverters can be loaded and transported with ease and set up almost anywhere.
