Introduction
The APsystems Communicator, our state-of-the-art Energy
Communication Unit (ECU), is the information gateway for our
microinverters. The unit collects module performance data from
each individual microinverter and transfers this information to
an Internet database in real time, requiring only a single data
and power cable. Through the APsystems Monitor software, the
APsystems Communicator gives you precise analysis of each
microinverter and module in your solar installation from any
web-connected device. The APsystems Communicator’s integrated
http webserver offers the simplest and most flexible network
integration of any data logger on the market. The user-friendly
browser-based interface lets you access your solar array in seconds.
Features

Collects individual module and microinverter statistics
Communicates in real time

Requires no additional wiring

The APsystems Microinverter is used in utility-interactive grid-tied
applications, and is made up of three key elements:

the wired network, we can select GPRS module to connect to the
network, and communicate with the EMA, to check the system
data.

Hardware Installation
Preparation
Make sure you have the following things taken care of before
attempting to install the ECU:

AC power line
A broadband Internet connection is available for your

use.

A broadband router with either a CAT5 Ethernet, or
wireless router is available for your use.

A laptop with a web browser (to view the APsystems
EMA online monitoring application).

A pre-programmed ECU.
Selecting an Installation Location for the ECU

1)
The ECU is NOT rated for outdoor use, so if installing
outdoors near a junction box or breaker panel, making
sure that you enclose it in an appropriate weather proof
NEMA electrical box.
Using Electrical Mounting Din Rail

Loosen the two (2) M3 mounting screws on the back of
the ECU and rotate the two (2) rail holders so that the
holders are above the ECU.

Using Wall Mount
When mounting the ECU to a wall, make sure to select a
cool, dry, indoor location.
Depending on the wall surface you are mounting the

ECU to, use either two (2) #8 drywall screws or wall
anchors, installed 130 mm apart. The drywall screws
and wall anchors are NOT included in the ECU kit.

Align and slide the ECU onto the mounting screws.

Figure 8
Best Practice: Install and connect the ECU to the Internet
(see below instructions) while the rest of the array is being
installed. Doing so allows the ECU to automatically update
its internal software while the rest of the physical installation
is underway. The ECU will then communicate with the inverters
when the installation is complete and the array is energized.

Internet Connection
There are three different approaches to connecting the ECU
to the Internet:
Option 1: Direct LAN cable connection.
1) Make sure the LAN cable is connected to the network
port on the bottom of the ECU.
2) Connect the LAN cable into a spare port on the
broadband router.
Figure 10
Option 2: Wireless Connection.
Using a wifi extender:
1) Make sure the LAN cable is connected to the network
port on the bottom of the ECU.
2) Connect the LAN cable into the wifi extender.
Figure 11
Option 3: Using a PLC bridge
1) Make sure the LAN cable is connected to the network
port on the bottom of the ECU.

3)
Connect the LAN cable into the “send” unit of the PLC
bridge.
Connect a LAN cable from the “receive” unit of the PLC
bridge into a spare port on the broadband router (refer
to bridge users manual for specific operating instructions).
Figure 12
NOTE: 1. The ECU is NOT a wireless device and requires
a wifi extender or bridge to make the connection
to a wireless router.
2. A PLC bridge uses the power line to communicate
and requires both a “send” and “receive” unit.

ECU Initialization Sequence
Once power is supplied to the ECU, it automatically steps through
a series of initialization screens on its LCD display.

Step 1: Power on ECU
As soon as the ECU is plugged into an AC outlet, the following
information will be displayed on LCD after ten seconds.

Router IP Address
A word about network communication protocols. The ECU needs
to have access to the router via an IP address. The ECU will only
search for and obtain a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
IP address during its powering up sequence.
For example, the LCD screen on the front of the ECU displays an
IP address such as “192.168.2.101”, if the connection to the router
is successful (the IP address will vary based on router supplier, so
check with the user manual for specifics). If, however, the LED
displays “60.190.131.228”, the ECU-router connection has not been
successful, in which case you’ll need to check all of the cabling
connections and reboot the ECU by removing the power cable for a
few seconds and reconnecting.

number is followed by an “!”, then the number of reporting
inverters does not match the number of IDs that have been
programmed into the ECU.
NOTE: The inverter IDs must be programmed into
the ECU for the ECU to recognize the inverters. The
ECU will NOT auto-sense the inverters (see ID
Management pg. 20).

Basic Operation
The APsystems ECU has one two-line, 40-character LCD display
with alphanumeric. Set the mode using a single button.
NOTE: ECU functions as a gateway and monitors the
microinverters that are connected to the PV modules.
Therefore, the communication between inverters and
ECU does not affect inverters' performance, even if ECU
drops inverters. The power production data collected by
ECU is for reference only, please check the power meter
for the real power production of the whole system.
Menu Structure
You can access the ECU’s menu by pressing and holding the
Menu Button on the side of the ECU for 2 seconds.
MENU Button
Figure 19
NOTE: The Menu Button will only cycle through its menu
selections once the ECU has been successfully initialized.
The ECU has the following menu structure (displayed on LCD
screen):

Troubleshooting
Potential Problems and Solutions
IP Address Problem: If the IP address displayed on the ECU’s
LCD does not match the subnet on your internal network and
shows “60.190.131.228”, it means that it was unsuccessful in
obtaining a DHCP IP address from your router.
Check network connectivity to the router or other

DHCP server. You may need to contact your Internet
Service Provider or refer to your router documentation
for troubleshooting assistance.
LCD Displays “-Web”: The ECU could not connect to the
APsystems website.

Check network connectivity to the router. You may
need to contact your Internet Service Provider or refer
to your router documentation for troubleshooting
assistance
LCD Display “!”: The number of installed units doesn’t match
the microinverter-count. This may indicate that the ECU is having
difficulty communicating over the power lines. It could also be
caused by low light levels, resulting in module voltage that is too
low for the microinverter to power up.
