3SSolar UG developed the BBBox, the perfect Solar Electricity Storage Solution and UPS Power Outage Prevention for Domestic Homes and Business.

The BBBox “Solar” with its integrated solar charger can be connected to solar arrays up to 5.8kWp and stores the over day harvested electric energy for use at night. Due to its uninterruptable power supply it keeps electronics running smoothly even during sudden blackouts, in your home, office, shop or in public institutions. It can also serve as autonomous off-grid power supply in remote areas.

The BBBox “Standard” is delivered without solar charger but can be connected to existing solar arrays to increase the self-consumption by store the over day harvested electric energy for use at night. Due to its uninterruptable power supply it keeps electronics running smoothly even during sudden blackouts. The BBBox “Standard” is also perfect for small and medium businesses, offices, security systems, police stations or public services who are not able to install small generators or want to replace them to reduce air pollution.

How it works

The BBBox has an integrated UPS function which switches in less than 20 milliseconds guaranteed, usually in less than 9 milliseconds. This is fast enough to keep your most essential appliances such as computers, electronic cashier systems, security systems, etc., running. Meanwhile, heavy loads such as air conditioning or electric geysers stay connected directly on your main electricity and switch off with the interruption. The working time of BBBox depends on your connected appliances and the battery capacity installed.
