As promised in our previous post, we will be covering the SMA PUK (Personal Unlocking Key) in today’s service tip. We explain how your devices can be unlocked to restore normal access to your system data.
Starting immediately, all private system operators can monitor their solar systems online. This is now possible because all current Sunny Boy inverters of up to 6 kilowatts come with a Webconnect interface as a standard feature. The devices thus have free access to online monitoring. We would like to answer some questions on the subject of online monitoring with Webconnect.
The Service Line has been receiving a lot of questions about passwords lately. Some customers want to know why they can no longer access the inverter in a PV system using their password. Why is this happening?
Do you know how to create personalised pages in Sunny Portal? Can you plot ambient temperature against plant power? SMA’s Technical Service Engineer Wendy Truong takes you through a step-by-step guide on how to do just this and much more.
Let’s start with the good news: After the release last year of the iOS app used for display live data in PV systems with the Sunny Home Manage, an Android app with the same functionality is now available as well.
SMA’s Sunny Portal has reached a milestone achievement of 100 terawatt hours (TWh) of solar energy monitoring and 150,000 systems monitored. This achievement, which affirms Sunny Portal’s status as a leading Web-based PV monitoring platform, is the equivalent of avoiding more than 70 million tons of carbon dioxide from entering Earth’s atmosphere.
Energy from conventional sources is becoming more and more expensive. As a result, people are increasingly interested in using energy when costs are low – for example when their PV system is producing abundant current. However, being able to use energy to get the most out of it also involves a number of other considerations. This article describes smart energy management with the Sunny Home Manager.
Worth waiting for: Webconnect makes additional data loggers a thing of the past. From now on, operators of residential PV systems with up to four inverters can monitor them directly online and access data directly via Sunny Portal if necessary. In short, direct data exchange is finally possible without additional devices.
