Precise Communication
Direct data exchange with Sunny Places and Sunny Portal

One of the great advantages of Webconnect is the direct transfer of data from the inverter to the Sunny Portal and Sunny Places—without any other SMA devices. In addition to the integrated Webconnect functionality, all it takes is Internet access and a DSL router. With system data clearly displayed in Sunny Places and the Sunny Portal, users can get an overview of their system, compare it with others and communicate with other system operators.

 Simply use private Internet access

A DSL broadband connection is required to use the Webconnect functions. Under these conditions, continuous data exchange with the Sunny Portal and Sunny Places makes it possible to visualize the high-resolution data.

⦁ A packet-oriented mobile radio data transmission (e.g., LTE, UMTS, HSPA, EDGE or GPRS) is recommended only if the mobile provider offers an appropriate flat rate with support of VoIP (Voice over IP).
⦁ Since GSM routers use a time-based billing structure, they should never be used with the Webconnect functionality.
