Enecsys Installation and Operation Manual – Version 1.6 –June 6 2012
2 Installation Sequence
2.1 Customer site inspection
CAUTION: All work carried out at a customer site must follow the health and
safety instructions for working at height for the country in which the system is
installed. (For example, in the UK, this is laid down in the Work at Height
Regulations 2005. In the US, there are OSHA standards for Fall Protection.)
2.1.1 Installation assumptions
•
The PV system has been at least partially planned at the point when micro
inverters are being considered. The number of PV panels will determine the
number of micro inverters needed. The voltage characteristics of the modules
chosen will determine the Enecsys micro inverter to use. The PV panel
characteristics should match the micro inverter model chosen, and the PV panel
layout should be finalized.
•
Approximate yearly energy yield is calculated when the micro inverters will be set
up on the Enecsys monitoring system. This figure must be entered when the
monitoring is set up.
•
Installation plan has taken inverter positioning and cabling configuration into
account.
•
Permits and certifications must be in place before installation.
•
Racking systems vary by PV installation. The installer should use a method of
mounting the micro inverters that works with the racking system. Installers must
supply their own mounting hardware.
2.1.2 Site requirements for Enecsys micro inverters and monitoring system
•
The customer must have a broadband Internet connection.
•
There must be an unused Ethernet port on the customer’s router to connect to the
Enecsys gateway so the gateway can communicate with the online monitoring
system. The information provided by the Enecsys gateway is used to troubleshoot
the installation as it progresses.
•
If the roof is made of metal or lined with metal foil, it may be necessary to install a
double repeater right below it, in a loft or attic, for example. The double repeater
connects to a remote antenna that is installed on the roof above the metal surface,
where it can communicate with the micro inverters and the Enecsys gateway.
•
If a repeater or double repeater is necessary, there must be power outlets in the
required locations.
2.2 Install the Enecsys gateway
At the earliest possible stage during the onsite installation, the installer should connect the
Enecsys gateway to the customer’s router using the Ethernet cable provided. When the
gateway is powered up, it will be ready to start monitoring the micro inverters as soon as they
are connected to the PV panels on an individual basis. (See “3 Installing the Gateway”.)
10
Enecsys Installation and Operation Manual – Version 1.6 –June 6 2012
Q: Why is it recommended to set up the gateway as early as possible during the installation? A: Once the gateway is functioning it will show which individual inverters have DC
connections, even without AC power to the inverters. Solving connection issues before
finalization can help the installation to proceed more efficiently.
2.3 Test the communications between micro inverters and gateway
By looking at the “Installer Mode” screen on the gateway unit, the installer can see if the
gateway is receiving a good signal from all of the micro inverters. See section 4 “Using the
Enecsys Gateway”.
If communications have not been established, it may be necessary to install one or more
repeaters. See section 5 “Using the Enecsys Repeaters”.
2.4 Mount the Enecsys micro inverters and cable harness
The installer must follow the installation design, mount all the micro inverters on the
racking/mounting system, prepare the roof penetration conduit and lay the AC branch bus
cabling. Note that the micro inverters must not be connected at this point.
•
The single micro inverters must be installed with the round plastic antenna covers
facing downwards towards the roof.
•
See “6.2 Mounting the single micro inverter” or “6.4 Mounting the duo micro
inverter”.
2.5 Inspect and test the AC cabling before it is connected to the mains utility grid
When all of the AC cabling is in place, but before it is connected to the grid, it must be
inspected and tested to verify compliance with the relevant electrical installation standards.
2.6 Connect the micro inverters, AC bus cabling, and ground wire
See “6.5 Installing and connecting the AC bus cabling, Single and Duo” and “6.6.1,
Connection instructions for the Single and Duo micro inverters”, steps 1 through 4. Install the
ground wire (if applicable).
2.7 Connect the DC cables from the PV modules to the micro inverters
See “6.6 1, Connecting the single or duo micro inverter”: step 5.
When the PV modules are connected to the micro inverters, they will immediately start
communicating with the Enecsys gateway.
2.8 Connect the AC cabling to the mains utility grid
See “6.6 1, Connecting the single or duo micro inverter”: step 6.
WARNING
Connection of the AC cable to the mains utility grid must only be done by a
qualified electrician.

Enecsys Installation and Operation Manual – Version 1.6 –June 6 2012
2.9 Set up the new installation on the Enecsys monitoring website
WARNING:
The Enecsys micro inverter, gateway, and monitoring components work in
conjunction to report faults. For NEC compliance, do not install the PV
system without the micro inverter, gateway, and monitoring components in
place.
o
o
If the installer has not worked with Enecsys micro inverters before, it’s time to set up an
Installer Account. For setup details, see section 7.0, “Installer Login”.
Before installing the gateway, the installer should log onto the Enecsys Monitoring website
with his installer account and set up the individual installation. The installer will need
details such as the homeowner's name and email address, street address of site,
estimated yearly energy production, and average cost of electricity per kilowatt-hour.

Enecsys Installation and Operation Manual – Version 1.6 –June 6 2012
5 Using Enecsys Repeaters
The Enecsys gateway receives signals from the micro inverters on the roof and broadcasts
the data over the Internet to the Enecsys Monitoring server. If the gateway cannot receive
strong enough signals from micro inverters, a repeater installed nearer the PV modules on the
roof will receive the signals, boost them, and then relay them to the gateway.
In some cases it may be necessary to install more than one single repeater to boost signals
two or more times before they reach the gateway.
5.1 Failure to establish reliable communications
•
If the Enecsys gateway displays the check symbol “P“ on the Installer Mode screen,
communications link between the gateway and the inverters is established and is reliable.
•
If the gateway displays either the “?” or “X” symbol, the communications link may not be
strong enough to be reliable. It may be necessary to:
o
o
Install one or more single repeaters. See section 5.4, “Installing a Single
Repeater.”
Install a double repeater. See section 5.5, “Installing a Double Repeater”.
5.2 Using single repeaters
•
If the “X” symbol is displayed on the gateway Installer Mode communication status,
one or more Enecsys single repeaters can be used. Start with one and observe for the
“X” to change to a “P“.
•
If the “?” symbol is displayed, signal quality is poor. Distance between the inverters
and gateway may be the problem: installing a second single repeater may help.
•
The diagram shows a building with two single repeaters between the PV modules on
the roof and the Enecsys gateway on the ground floor.
19
Enecsys Installation and Operation Manual – Version 1.6 –June 6 2012
5.3 Using the double repeater with external antenna
Even with a single repeater installed in the installation space, it may not be possible for the
gateway to receive signal from the micro inverters. This can happen for the following reasons:
•
The roof may be made out of metal, or be lined with metal foil.
•
The distance between the micro inverters and the single repeater or gateway may
be too great.
• The building may have UV-screened windows.
In this case, it is necessary to install a double repeater with external antenna.
The external antenna must be mounted on the roof above any metal roof layers. It is
connected to the double repeater inside the building by a coaxial cable. The double repeater
passes the inverter signals via its normal internal antenna to the Enecsys gateway.
20
Enecsys Installation and Operation Manual – Version 1.6 –June 6 2012
5.4 Installing one or more single repeaters
The single repeater should ideally be installed in the roof space, directly below the micro
inverters. It must be installed near a mains power socket for the plug-top mains adapter. If you
need to install a second single repeater, this should be located on one of the intermediate
floors between the repeater in the roof space and the Enecsys gateway on the ground floor,
as shown in the diagram in section 5.2 “Using Single Repeaters”.
Single repeater scope of delivery:
•
1 Single repeater unit.
•
1 Plug-top mains adapter – 5V DC 1A.

•
Before any sections are created, the screen will appear as below.
•
Select the ADD A NEW SECTION button to create a new PV system layout.
Step 6: Enter section details.
Q: Why would an installation consist of “sections”? A: Smaller installations are not as likely to need to be defined in sections. Larger installations may
have areas of different energy production characteristics: different module types, different
predicted Annual Energy Production, layout characteristics such as orientation to the sun, or other
factors that are recommended to be defined separately to refine data collection.
Section Details •
Define section parameters, predicted energy yield, and type of modules.
•
Define inverter configuration: choose the appropriate icon and inverter model. Note
that there are different icons for side-by-side panels sharing a Duo inverter and for
panels end-to-end that share a Duo. This is for the layout to fill properly.
•
Define the default layout grid. The grid can be moved and changed later.
•
The system-generated inverter ID field will look up entries to prevent errors.
