In combination with the new Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS, the Data Manager M optimizes communication, monitoring and control of PV systems with up to 50 SMA devices. Based on the new IoT platform for energy management, ennexOS from SMA, the Data Manager M not only replaces the SMA Cluster Controller, but its expandability also means that it is already well-equipped to handle the new business models of the energy market of the future. For example, it is the ideal professional system interface for electric utility companies, service technicians and PV system operators.
Particularly impressive is its innovative and highly efficient user interface, which has been standardized for both Data Manager M and the new Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS. A range of intuitive assistance functions for the Data Manager M, inverters and Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS significantly reduce the amount of time involved in commissioning and parameterization.
The basic scope of functions and interfaces offered by the new Data Manager M is coordinated with the associated functions in Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS and adapts to future requirements incrementally. Thanks to its modular design and systematic support of industrial standards such as Modbus/TCP, systems can be expanded to include additional components such as I/O systems or energy meters, from either SMA or other suppliers.
Fast and simple
Future-proof and flexible
Reliable and convenient
Lowest risk solution
The Data Manager M and the new Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS are perfectly coordinated with each other. This not only makes it easier to monitor, analyze, parameterize and manage PV systems, but also helps save time and money.
Standard pages for monitoring, analysis and parameterization allow you to work efficiently and help you save time managing your systems.
The preconfigured MOXA and Wago I/O systems available from SMA are perfectly coordinated with the new IoT energy management platform ennexOS and can be easily integrated into a system. Thanks to its high level of flexibility, the system can meet changing customer requirements at any time, for example, if there are any changes in legal or normative requirements.

Check in the settings of the router whether DHCP is enabled. If DHCP cannot be enabled, a static IP address must be assigned to the Data Manager. To do this, connect the Data Manager to a DHCP-capable router outside the PV system and carry out the commissioning. Assign a correct static IP address to the Data Manager (ask your grid administrator). Then connect the Data Manager to the router in the PV system. Now the Data Manager can be reached via the static IP address. Follow the installation assistant steps and make the settings appropriate for your system.
In order to use the I/O system with the Data Manager, the I/O system with its IP address must be disclosed in the Data Manager. To determine the IP address of the I/O system, proceed as follows:
1. Open the command line interpreter on a suitable end device and enter the command "arp-a".
2. The physical address indicates the associated IP address.
The buffer capacitor of the Data Manager's real-time clock might have discharged due to being without voltage supply for a longer time period. Make sure that the Data Manager has access to a time server on the internet to obtain a current time.
The WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750 is suitable for connecting Pt100 temperature sensors with two, three or four wires. SMA recommends connecting Pt100 temperature sensors with two wires since the corresponding bus terminal 750-464 is preset to 2-channel measuring technology.
To be able to use the analog inputs of the ioLogik E1242 with the Data Manager, the analog inputs of the ioLogik E1242 must be set to 4 mA to 20 mA (see manufacturer manual).
The ioLogik E1260 from Moxa is suitable for the connection of Pt100 temperature sensors with two or three wires.
