About UTL’s SMU
A solar management unit (SMU) is a small and latest technology interconnecting device that allows its user to connect their existing inverter with a solar photovoltaic system. It converts an existing/normal inverter into a solar inverter so that you will not have to buy solar inverter separately. For this, just install the SMU between the solar panels and your existing inverter.
UTL’s solar management unit (SMU) is much smarter and efficient than other SMUs. It is more than 95% efficient and extracts all the available energy from the solar panels. The SMU will charge the solar battery automatically by using solar power. The UTL SMU has several plug-in and plug-out slots which allow it to connect with solar panel and solar inverter. SMU ensures the priority usage of solar power to reduce grid power consumption. The comprehensive self-diagnostics and extensive electronic protection can prevent damage against incorrect wiring or system faults.
UTL SMU is available in a 12 volt/24 volt power rating with 20 Amp and 40 Amp charging current capacity. It also has a wide operating range from 0°C to 50°C. The specialty of this device is that it can be installed with a 12-volt system and also with a 24-volt system. This solar management unit will automatically detect whether it is a single battery-based system or it is a system with a double battery. For this, you do not have to choose any switch or any other option.
