questions Melvin on 21/04/2022

Morning Could I eventually push power back to Eskom if I want to at a later stage


Hi Melvin, yes this inverter is capable of doing this.

questions Frans on 08/02/2022

I have a micro inverter setup installed (Hoymiles 1.2kW) in a grid tied configuration. This needs a reference power signal (aka Eskom) in order to output power to my local grid. Is it possible to use the Sunsynk inverter to act as a source (ie. grid connection in anti-islanding mode) so that the generated power from the solar array can be used (during load shedding) either as self consumption or to charge batteries? My plan is to add backup battery supply for use in evenings, and also to accommodate during load shedding. Please advise if this could be done. Thanks!


Hi Frans, yes it is. The Sunsynk has an auxiliary port for this purpose.

questions Matthew on 07/05/2021

Do these allow for parallel operation e.g 2x 5kW systems to sum up to 10kW, this is for extra reliabilty in a remote off grid location incase one fails.


Hi Matthew, yes the units can be paralleled.

questions Bruno on 15/04/2021

Hi, do I need to purchase a communication cable with this, to use it with the pylontech 2.4kw battery? There is a battery cable kit on this site, but it mentions that the communication cable is no longer included.


Hi Bruno, no. The Sunsynk comes with a CAN cable you can use for this purpose.

questions Yash on 16/02/2021

Hi, thanks for the answer. So i i assume if the demand is more than 30 minutes and greater than peak, i.e. between 5-8kw, it will then switch to grid completely meaning it wont split the load (5kw solar and 3kw grid). For the 8kw, what is then the peak?


Hi Yash

That is correct, yes.

The 8kW has a 190A pass through, which is much larger than any standard single-phase household feed.
questions Yash on 15/02/2021

Hi, what happens if power demand is greater than 5KW, say 8KW. Can it pull the extra 3KW from the grid?


Hi Yash, it will operate normally up to 5000W. Then up to 5500W for half an hour. Between 5.5kW and 8kW it will switch over to pass through and use only electricity. Above 8kW it will shut down completely.

questions Lloyd on 13/02/2021

Can the Sunsynk 5kW Hybrid inverter operate and supply power to the house without AC power from the Grid?


Hi Lloyd, yes it can.

questions Diarmaid on 14/01/2021

Is the Sunsynk inverter on the City of Cape Town approved supplier list? Is it interchangeable with the Deye inverter? Thanks, Diarmaid


Hi Diarmaid, yes and yes (Deye and Sunsynk have slightly different interfaces but are the same machine physically).

You can find the City of Cape Town approved inverter list here

questions Boet Joubert on 10/09/2020

Is there software to monitor, manage and store data to evaluate performance


Hi Boet, there is, yes. You can set up an account here:

questions Louis Viljoen  on 27/08/2020

Does the Sunsynk inverter have two MPPT trackers? Is it transformerless? Does it have a heat sink or fan or what cooling system does it have?


Hi Louis. Yes, 2 MPPT's, transformerless and fans for cooling.

questions Phillip on 12/08/2020

Regarding the pass through of 35A, is this in addition to the inverter's 25A for a max output of 60A total? Or is the total maximum 35A?


Hi Phillip, it's a max of 35A.

questions Rossouw Goosen on 11/08/2020

Good Day, So the WIFI Module is include? What is the warrantee on the unit?


Hi Rossouw, yes the wifi dongle is included. The manufacturers warranty is 5 years.

questions Frank on 02/08/2020

I assumed that this inverter can only handle a peak power of 200% capacity for +- 10 seconds. Yet is says Peak power off-grid is 2 times the rates power. So what is the peak power on-grind? Or is it the same? What I also don't understand is that the spec sheet said Max Continuous AC passthrough (A) = 35A. Does this mean that if the normal rating of 5000Watt is exceeded for to long then it will "by pass" and only use Grid power to support a load of up to +- 8000 Watt (35 Amp)? Or is the Max power on-grid over 10000watt? Also why does the spec sheet say that Rated AC Output is 5000W, but Max AC. Power is 5500w? Does this mean that it can handle 5500Watt load continuously?


Hi Frank

Peak power = 10kW for 10 seconds

Passthrough @ 35A refers to when the inverter is connected to grid power. In this case the backup load can pull 35A e.g. 35A @ 230V = 8.05KW

Rated power = 5kW (this is your max continuous draw in backup mode (during grid failure)

Max power = 5,5kW should not be operted at this level for more than 30 minutes.
