Activation of SMA Smart Connected
During registration of the system in Sunny Portal, the installer simply checks a box to activate SMA Smart Connected which commences automatic inverter monitoring by SMA.
Automatic inverter monitoring
SMA automatically monitors the inverter to identify events around-the-clock. Both installers and their customers benefit from SMA's many years of experience diagnosing sophisticated inverter technology.
After a fault has been diagnosed and analyzed, SMA informs the installer and PV system operator immediately by email. So all parties are proactively prepared for the troubleshooting process ensuring minimum downtime and reducing truck roll costs.
In the rare event that a replacement component is necessary, SMA automatically supplies a replacement component within one to three days of the fault diagnosis. The installer can then contact the PV system operator of his/her own accord and repair the inverter immediately.

The SMA Cellular LTE Modem Kit allows for direct data transmission between the Sunny Boy inverter to the cloud based Sunny Portal via a cellular network as an alternative to data transmission via Ethernet or WLAN.
SMA Modbus interfaces provide support for the industry standard protocol for communications between electronic devices. Modbus interfaces enable the integration of SMA products with products from other suppliers for system monitoring and control.
The external antenna extension kit increases the inverter's WLAN range to overcome site conditions which inhibit wireless signals and to ensure reliable wireless communications with the network router.
With the SMA Sensor Module external weather sensors for solar irradiation, ambient and module temperature, and wind speed can be connected directly to the inverter, eliminating the need for a separate weather station datalogger and enclosure. Sensor data logged by the inverter is available in SMA Sunny Portal and through the inverter's Modbus protocol interfaces.
