Can I see how much electricity my system is producing?
Yes. Different inverters provide different levels of monitoring. In addition to the LCD displays that are standard with most inverters, PowerSmart can provide system monitoring software or a standalone display that will allow you to see how much electricity your system is generating at any time. Below is a quick rundown on the monitoring options that different companies provide;
SMA Sunny Boy 2000HF and Sunny Boy 3000 to 10000 TL models have digital display monitoring on the inverter and come with Bluetooth which allows you connect your system to your PC through free software provided by SMA called Sunny Explorer.
SMA Sunny Boy 1700 has a digital display on the inverter and has the option of adding the SMA Bluetooth piggy back which allows you to download the daily system output from your system onto your computer.
Sunny Webbox; Requirements: will need to have an ethernet cable close to the inverter location in order to make the sunny Webbox operational
