ATTENZIONE: if you are setting a connection
through a Router/AP, data will be visible on
the website after approximately 1 hour from
configuration.
ELIOS4YOU
1. After device installation and after having it powered on, download the free App Elios4you on your own device (smartphone or
tablet) from Playstore (Android) or App Store (iOS)
2. Open the App and start the wizard, following the steps visible on your smartphone/tablet (read the Elios4you APP Quick Guide
for further information)
Guide
4. Check that collected data are correct:
- Press
“Home” button to to go the “Energy performance” page
- Check that energy “Generation” value
has similar value as you can read from the inverter
- Check that the energy “Consumption” value
is the same of the real time consumption you have in the home
Elios4you: a wireless device for the monitoring of single-phase photovoltic installations via
App. Maximum monitored power 6 kW. It measures the energy generated of the pv plant,
exchanged with the grid, the household consumption and the self-consumption.
ATTENTION: when Elios4you is configured for internet access through Router/AP, all data are collected even on 4-cloud website.
Go to http://www.4-cloud.org and follow on line instructions for registering. Match your account with the device filling with the USER
code on the label of your Elios4you.
TROUBLE SHOOTING
Installation - Power reading
Problem
Elios4you
Solutions
1. I can’t see my PV system energy
generation in the App’s home Page
a. Change current clamp (CT) versus (white label) by inverting the green dot or the inside current clamp arrow position.
b. Check that inside the current clamp you have only the PV Line cable (not also the Neutral).
c. Check that the current clamp core is not broken or cracked inside.
2. The energy generation visible on the App
is definitely less than the value read from
the inverter
a. Be sure that the Elios4you is powered from the same line of the 2 current clamps.
b. Check that the current clamp (white label) is perfectly closed: any strong pressure should be need to clamp the cable properly
3. Consumption graph has the same shape
of production graph line
a. Be sure that the mains CT (yellow label) clamps all lines coming from the Mains Meter: if not it is possible that the meter is measuring only
the consumption.
b. Be sure that the Neutral cable is not clamped within the CT (yellow and white label).
c. Check that both current clamps are not broken or cracked inside.
4. It seems that consumption values are
shown in the “grid” icon
a. Be sure that the mains CT (yellow label) clamps all lines coming from the Mains Meter: if not it is possible that the meter is measuring only
the consumption.
5. I can never see purchased energy in my
system
a. Be sure that the mains CT (yellow label) clamps all lines coming from the Mains Meter: if not it is possible that the meter is measuring only
the consumption.
6. During the night the consumption is zero,
while during the day is always more than
normal value expected
a. Reverse CT (yellow label) current clamp position, by inverting green dot/inside arrow position.
7. In the App I can see high consumption
levels, while the real time consumption
is very low.
a. Reverse CT (yellow label) current clamp position, by inverting green dot/inside arrow position.
b. Be sure that the mains CT (yellow label) clamps all lines coming from the Mains Meter: if not it is possible that the meter is measuring only
the consumption.

WARNING
WARNING: if the generation energy LED
does
not blink when the pv instalaltion is producing
energy, it is necessary to invert the Generation CT
orientation by inverting the connection of the wires
of Elios4you (terminals 7 and 9).
WARNING: if the exchanged LEDs
and
detect the wrong energy flow (“sold” energy when
it should report a situation of “purchased” energy or
viceversa), it is necessary to invert the mains CT
(yellow label) by inverting the connection of the
wires of Elios4you (terminals 10 and 12).
!
WARNING
WARNING: make sure that between the 2 CTs
and the meters there are any other electrical
appliances connected. Otherwise, the resulting
measurements would not be reliable.
WARNING: possible alterations of CTs wires lenght
will cause an increase in the marginal error during
the measurements detection. We do not
recommend such alterations of the device.
ATTENTION
ATTENTION: installation must be done by
qualified personnel only.
