SUNNY WEBBOX with Bluetooth® Wireless Technology

SUNNY WEBBOX with Bluetooth® Wireless Technology

Rapid set-up, reliable monitoring

No cables needed, simple to configure, extremely user-friendly. That's the Sunny WebBox with Bluetooth. It receives and stores currently measured values and data from PV inverters and Sunny SensorBox devices. Via the international wireless standard Bluetooth standard, this data logger can access up to 50 network nodes. This keeps the operator updated on the status of his PV plant right around the clock. In addition, contractors are able to carry out the parameterization of all SMA inverters using the web interface of the Sunny WebBox. Thanks to the new Sunny WebBox Assistant, commissioning is as simple as pie. And the new web interface displays the yields of each inverter at a glance in day-by-day and history views. Sunny WebBox with Bluetooth - the ideal link to SMA inverters.
