Bluetooth interface Piggy-Back

The retrofit Bluetooth communication interface Piggy-Back enables wireless communication between the SMA inverter and SMA communication devices.

Also available with offset antenna for an optimized Bluetooth reception.

RS485 Piggy-Back

The RS485 wiring for plant monitoring and communication allows functional lengths of up to 15235 meters. The Sunny WebBox collects all the data and informs you about the status of the PV plant. With Piggy-Back the data transmission is reliable even in interference-prone areas. Subsequent expansions are possible without problem thanks to the modular design principle.
