If no automatic update is set for the inverter in the communication product (e.g. SMA Data Manager, Cluster Controller, Sunny Portal) or via the user interface of the inverter, you have the option of carrying out a manual firmware update.

Depending on the battery used, the firmware update of the inverter also updates the battery.

Finally figured it out, thanks for everyone's input, I disconnected my modem completely from all devices, pulled the plug, then able to connect the inverter WiFi to my laptop without interference from other wifi sources trying to jump in, manually typed all my ip, router etc addresses, when all were connected OK, reconnected my home wifi to all my devices and after about an hour logged back. SMA Solar Technology AG Safety Technical Information EventMessages-TI-en-130912 7 2 Safety 2.1 Appropriate Usage This document is a supplement to the user manuals for the products and is intended to be used as a guide to speed up the troubleshooting process.

You have the following options to update the firmware:

  • Update the firmware with the existing update file via the user interface of the inverter.

  • Update the firmware with the existing update file via USB flash drive.

  • Search and install the firmware via the user interface of the inverter.

Faulty firmware update due to disconnecting the inverter from the utility grid or when the battery is disconnected or discharged.

The inverter must be connected to the utility grid and the battery must be switched on during the firmware update. The state of charge must be at least 5%. The battery-backup and secure power supply operation must be disabled. This ensures a proper firmware update.

  1. Ensure that the battery is switched on and the state of charge is above 5%.
  2. Do not disconnect the inverter from the utility grid during the firmware update.
  3. Do not enable secure power supply operation during the firmware update.
  4. Do not use the black-start button during the firmware update.

Update the firmware with the existing update file via the user interface of the inverter.

Requirements:

SolarDownload sma solar port devices drivers
  • An update file with the desired inverter firmware must be available. The update file is, for example, available for download on the product page of the inverter at www.SMA-Solar.com. To download the update file, it is necessary to enter the serial number of the inverter.

Procedure:

  1. Open the user interface ( > Establishing a connection to the user interface).
  2. Log into the user interface as an Installer( > Logging In and Out of the User Interface).
  3. Select the menu Device Configuration.
  4. In the inverter row, click on the gear icon and select Update firmware.
  5. Select [Browse] and select the update file for the inverter.
  6. Select Update firmware.
  7. Follow the instructions in the dialog.

Update the firmware with the existing update file via USB flash drive.

Requirements:

Download Sma Solar Port Devices Driver Updater

  • A USB flash drive with maximum 32 GB and file system FAT32 must be available.

Procedure:

  1. Create an 'UPDATE' folder on the USB stick.
  2. Save the update file with the required firmware in the 'UPDATE' folder on the USB flash drive. The update file is, for example, available for download on the product page of the inverter at www.SMA-Solar.com. Ensure that only the update file to which the inverter is to be updated must be stored on the USB flash drive.
  3. Danger to life due to high voltages

    1. Disconnect the inverter from any voltage sources and open the enclosure lid of the Connection Unit (see the inverter installation manual).
  4. Insert the USB flash drive in the USB port on the communication assembly.
  5. Commission the inverter ( > Commissioning the Inverter).
  6. During start-up phase of the inverter, the desired firmware is being installed.
  7. Danger to life due to high voltages

    1. Disconnect the inverter from any voltage sources and open the enclosure lid of the Connection Unit (see the inverter installation manual).
  8. Pull the USB flash drive out of the USB port.
  9. Commission the inverter ( > Commissioning the Inverter).
  10. Call up the user interface of the inverter and check the events to see whether a firmware update has been successfully completed.
  11. If the firmware update has not been successfully completed, perform the firmware update again.

Search and install the firmware via the user interface of the inverter.

Requirements:

  • The inverter must be connected to the Internet.

SMA Solar Technology AG is a leading company worldwide in the development, production and marketing of solar inverters as well as the corresponding monitoring systems. As energy management group, SMA offers innovative key technologies for the energy supply structures of the future. In this dynamic environment, quality and the ability to innovate rapidly are important competitive advantages. Against this background, efficient product development and maintenance are essential.

A typical example of this is the platform strategy that SMA, together with emlix, has been following for the past year. Multiple devices with very different application contexts can be developed using the same hardware basis and the same basic operating system software.
The platform hardware is slightly modified for each application context and the hardware development costs are reduced for each new device developed. The operating system used on this board is a slim, hardware-specific SMA embedded Linux board support package (BSP). If a new device is developed on this platform, the investment in the operating system is reduced to the adaptations to the specific requirements of the device.

Because of standard development paradigms and a standard source code management and build process, the complete system is so flexible that functionalities and drivers can be taken over from other devices. This takes place with minimal effort even when the module in question was originally developed for a different hardware platform.

The development capacities at SMA and emlix can therefore be used to concentrate on the innovative aspects of the new device. The 'basic development' has already taken place and has been subjected to comprehensive quality assurance procedures. Right from the beginning e2factory, which has been optimized for industrial projects over a period of many years, was used as the source code management and build system. Via a so-called e2factory workbench, SMA can access the complete current code and can maintain its own software development activities.

The fact that the long-term cooperation between the developers also results in a frictionless and efficient relationship is a positive side effect of great significance.
