Sunny Island with Aquion BMS

Students install new Aquion BMS to integrate with Sunny Island 8.0H

The SMA Sunny Island inverter was primarily designed to work with lead-acid and (with the latest firmware) lithium ion battery systems. Integrating a non-lithium/non lead-acid battery with the Sunny Island has proved problematic, however, Aquion have solved the problem by building the DataTap device (BMS) that “emulates” the characteristic of a lithium battery BMS while managing the coulombic charging of the Aquion aqueous hybrid ion battery using it’s own current shunt.
