More Informative and Easy to Use

All the new main features of Sunny Portal at a glance

December 12: Limiting of the Active Power Feed-In & New Page "Analysis"

Sunny Home Manager: With immediate effect, the Sunny Portal with Sunny Home Manager allows the limitation of the active power fed into the utility grid - either to a fixed value or to a percentage of the nominal PV system power. If the generated PV power minus the value for self-consumption reaches the indicated value, the Sunny Home Manager prevents further increase in PV generation.


Analysis: A new "Analysis" page is available for PV systems with Sunny WebBox, Sunny WebBox with Bluetooth, Sunny Home Manager and Cluster Controller. Here, you can graphically present and evaluate the most important data and events of your PV system without additional configuration. A flexible and intuitively operable user interface will support you.


October 12: Webconnect

Communication: The direct data transmission from the inverter to the Sunny Portal – without the need for additional SMA devices – is one of the greatest advantages of Webconnect.

PV System Monitoring: Webconnect – the perfect solution for residential PV system operators who want to monitor their inverters and access inverter data online using Sunny Portal. The new SMA technology makes it possible – no data logger required – and for up to four inverters per Sunny Portal system.

PV System Overview: With the help of the Sunny Portal live interface you can always see the most up-to-date status and the current power output of your PV system.

August 09: New functions for PV system monitoring

Communication monitoring

Being even better informed: monitoring the communication between
Sunny WebBox and Sunny Portal

PV systems with the professional data logger Sunny WebBox regularly send measuring and event data to the Sunny Portal. Should this communication be disturbed, you can choose to be informed about this matter in future. Sunny Portal reminds you in case of persistent disturbance and gives the all-clear as soon as communication is re-established.
And those who want to have even more details: the time of the last contact with the PV system is displayed in Sunny Portal at any time.

Inverter comparison

Inverter comparison: evaluating the inverters' yield automatically

The performance of PV systems with at least two Sunny Boy or Sunny Mini Central inverters can be evaluated with a yield comparison. The specific yield of the inverters is compared and Sunny Portal informs the operator in case a defined threshold is exceeded. With few settings, you determine which devices are to be compared. And it is possible to configure the alarming threshold on your own: in case of deviations you receive a daily email from Sunny Portal.
