The weather station for PV systems

The Sunny SensorBox is installed directly onto solar modules and measures irradiation and temperature. In combination with Sunny WebBox and Sunny Portal, it provides continuous meteorological and power production data. This makes it possible to detect shade, dirt, and gradually declining array performance, providing security against lost yield. An optional sensor to measure of ambient temperature or wind speed provides even more data.



  • Rapid error detection


  • Precise measurement of irradiation intensity, module temperature, ambient temperature and wind speed

Easy to Install

  • Simple integration into existing PV plants via RS485


  • Data analysis on any PC or in the Sunny Portal
