SMA Sunny WebBox Web Enabled Data Logger & Control

Sunny Web Box
Web enabled data logging and control for alternative energy systems
The new Sunny WebBox from SMA is a powerful communication tool that allows the operating data of your solar system to be logged and easily transmitted via modem or Ethernet to the Web or directly to your PC. It can also send the data to SMA's new internet portal (Sunny Portal) which provides free long-term data storage and graphical display of your system data. Collected information is stored in common file formats so that you can use it in various spreadsheets, graphs or your own website. The Sunny WebBox is extremely versatile; making the storage, transmission, management, and display of your system data easier than ever before.
A New standard in communication
The Sunny WebBox provides complete plant monitoring, remote diagnosis, data storage and display at an affordable price. It features an integrated HTTP web interface that allows you to access plant information via a PC, regardless of operating system or browser type.
The Sunny WebBox is the link between the Sunny Boy PV plant and its owner. It combines computing power, storage capacity, and versatile communications interfaces in a compact enclosure. Networked with the Sunny Portal, the data-logger offers up-to-date display and control options on the internet.
The Sunny WebBox supports RS-485 for data transfer
to and from all SMA utility interactive inverters. The SMA Sunny WebBox requires a RS-485 card to connect to the Sunny Boy inverter. The Sunny Beam and the Sunny WebBox can't work simultaneously on the same inverter.
Data transfer and plant configuration via the internet is handled either by Ethernet connection or telephone modem. Data transfer is automatic – all you have to do is set the desired intervals. A single WebBox can monitor up to 50 Sunny Boy Inverters; an even greater savings when used in larger Sunny Boy solar electric plants.
Around the clock, around the world
Check the status of your PV plant – from your home, your office or anywhere you may be. A PC with an internet browser is all that is needed to access the WebBox.
The Sunny WebBox is equipped with its own web server that is preconfigured to work with your internet browser. This allows you to view the output of your plant and the operating channels of each inverter. You can also adjust the parameters of the Sunny WebBox via your web browser.
The Sunny WebBox can also be used in combination with SMA’s Sunny Portal website (www.sunnyportal.com). The internet portal offers free graphical presentation of your plant data in charts and diagrams. The Sunny Portal is WebBox ready, simply set up an account and connect the WebBox to the internet.
