M5 Inverter 5 kW Grid-Tied Battery Backup
Smart Power™ M5
The Smart Power M5 from Beacon Power is a newly engineered power conversion system designed specifically for grid-connect photovoltaic applications with battery backup. It offers high-efficiency electronics and instant, continuous backup power capability — day or night — in one integrated, outdoor-rated package.
The Smart Power M5 is today’s best choice for reliable, efficient solar electric power conversion. Its unique hardware and software architecture enables safe, continuous and efficient operation. Even in the event of grid outage, the Smart Power M5 system with battery backup will continue to provide you with PV and/or
battery power for critical loads — making it a truly dependable power source.
The Smart Power M5 comes as a fully integrated, single-box solution in a compact outdoorrated enclosure that houses the inverter, battery charge-controller, associated switchgear and ground fault protection. Installation and testing are faster and easier than with separate components and connections.
A single microcontroller with field-reprogrammable setpoints provides complete system adjustment and control. Optional PC-based Smart Power Monitor software lets you track a range of system performance parameters, as well as total PV power generated. With user friendly programming and data monitoring, flexible operating modes, and intelligent user and wiring interfaces, the Smart Power M5 is easy to install and operate.
