Solar data logging system for SMA SunnyBoy grid tie inverters.
SMA Sunny SensorBox Web enabled Blue Tooth with RS-485 Connection Port and Mounting Plate.
The compact Sunny SensorBox installs easily at the PV array to continuously monitor solar irradiation and module temperature, which can be used to calculate the expected output of the PV array for comparison to the actual power output of the inverters. This can help identify and troubleshoot reductions in energy yield.
SunnyBoy included Power Injector feed-in unit connects to the SensorBox via an RS-485 communication bus to provide power to the SensorBox and includes a plug-in power supply (120 VAC required).The Sunny SensorBox sends data to the Sunny WebBox via an RS-485 data link, or by wireless communication with the addition of the Bluetooth version of the Power Injector (purchased separately).
From there, the data can be transferred to a PC for further processing or to the Sunny Portal for automatic performance analysis. The Sunny SensorBox can accommodate up to 3 additional sensors such as ambient temperature, wind speed and an additional sensor.
The Sunny SensorBox is covered by a 5-year warranty.
