questions Joan on 14/11/2020

Afternoon I am interested in this unit, but have a few questions. Are the sunsynk inverters comparable with the conlog bec23 plt meter? If not what would happen? Can you use it in conjunction with a generator? Many thanks


Hi Joan

1) Conlog meters generally do cause problems with bi-directional inverters. In the case of the Sunsynk inverter however, you can change the grid set point so that the meter is not impacted by back feeding.

2) If you are unable to move the grid set point. Most Conlog meters will simply shut off completely if they send any back feeding trying to take place.

3) Yes, you can. It has a separate generator input.

questions Heather on 14/11/2020

Hi, is this inverter compatible with a conlog bec23 plt prepaid or would it causes issues?


Hi Heather, Conlog meters generally do cause problems with bi-directional inverters. In the case of the Sunsynk inverter however, you can change the grid set point so that the meter is not impacted by back feeding.

questions Jonathan on 29/10/2020

Good day, I got a few questions: 1. Does this unit still work when there is "load shedding"? 2. Does it automatically switch between input sources? ie Panels, grid etc. 3. Is this compatible with a Conlog prepaid meter? 4. can this product be purchased with a couple of solar panels and then later on add a Lithium (new type battery) to reduce the cost of installation all at once? Thanks. 0760712503


Hi Jonathan

1. Yes, in UPS mode

2. Yes

3. Hybrid inverters generally battle with Conlog pre-paid meters - We don't recommend you buy ANY hybrid or grid-tie inverter until you either get the meter changed to another brand or engage with Conlog and see if they are able to loosen the anti-tamper restrictions on your meter for you (this is sometimes possible).

4. Yse, but we would recommend a minimum of 4 panels to get the inverter working properly.

questions Pieter Theron on 06/10/2020

Hi I do not really have a question, but maybe to help other people understand the SunSynk parity inverter better, I stumbled across this person working for SunSynk and he explains the product in detail.


Hi Pieter, thanks very much. We already have some of Sunsynk's videos on our site. You can find them here: 

Sunsynk Installation and Info Videos

FYI, the presenter, Keith Gough is actually one of the co-founders of Sunsynk.

questions Andre on 06/09/2020

Will this unit bè able to communicate with Revov batteries. Goodwe does not.


Hi Andre. You'd have to check with Revov, but at this time we think not.

questions xander on 04/09/2020

Hallo, will this 8kw inverter handle my welding machine? see link please. input amps of welder 21-32 Not doing everyday welding jobs, but sometimes jobs can be 1-2 hours long


Hi Xander, yes the inverter will handle it - the batteries are another story.

questions Andy on 19/08/2020

Will this unit communicate with shoto batteries via their bms for control of SOC? The battery has rs485 and 232


Hi Andy, at the time of writing, Shoto doesn't communicate with ANY of the popular local inverter brands (although Axpert coms has been in the pipeline for some time).

These batteries are usually setup manually by defining the charge parameters in the inverter itself. It's internal BMS will look after battery health.

questions quewin hughes on 21/07/2020

Hi Is possible to configure the inverter for a three phase application?


Hi Quewin. No, you can parallel three together to create a synchronised 3-phase solution, but each inverter is only single phase

questions Bashir hassim  on 11/07/2020

Hi can this 8kw inverter be connected in parallel 2 or 3 units to make 16kw or 24kw


Hi Bashir, yes it can.

questions Hugh on 17/05/2020

Hello, if PV yield is a bit lower than consumption at any given time, and the battery capacity is at the set threshold whereby we stop using battery capacity, is this unit able to take only the deficit from the grid? For example, if the consumption is 2000 Watt but the PV yield is only 1600W and batteries are not used will it then only take 400 watts from the grid at that point in time, or will it switch the entire load over to grid supply and draw the 2000W off the grid? Is the SUNSYNK dynamically configurable in this way?


Hi Hugh. The inverter  takes only the deficit from the grid - most modern hybrid inverters work this way and the Sunsynk is no exception.

It is programmable in terms of the battery discharge thresholds, etc.

questions Jean-Philippe on 27/04/2020

Good day Can this inverter's settings be controlled remotely? How does it handle earthing when it loses the grid and goes into backup mode? Does it bond earth and neutral as new point of supply for example? Thank you, would be appreciated


Hi Jean-Philippe. While you can monitor most of the inverter functions remotely, they can't be altered remotely. You would need to be on-site to do that. The best product on the market at the moment for remote configuring (in our opinion) is the Victron solution.

Yes, the neutral is bonded with the earth when in backup mode.

questions Johan on 10/12/2019

How many of these units have you sold? I know it is new to the market but I don't want to be a Beta tester. Would you recommend it?


Hi Johan, we have sold a decent number and had great feedback, so yes we would recommend it.

questions Johan on 10/12/2019

I see it is compatible with pylontech batteries, can you see the charge level on screen?


Hi Johan, yes to both.

questions Dustin on 26/11/2019

Does the hybrid inverter use solar first, then batteries, then mains power? is the discharge level set via the inverter?


Hi Duston. This inverter can be programmed to use power in just about any way, so the answer is yes. Also, yes, you would set the discharge level of the battery through the inverter.

questions Freddie on 09/09/2019

Hi. Is this inverter new to the SA market? How does it compare to others like Victron, goodwe?? Will 4kw PV array (12 panels) be sufficient with this inverter? Together with 3x 3.5 pylon Li-Ion for a standard 15kw usage per 24 hours.


Hi Freddie. yes, this is new to the market. It has similar functionality to the Goodwe. Yes, you can use it with a $kWp array and 3 x 3.5kWh Pylontechs.
