2.4 Operating Instructions
High costs possible due to inappropriate Internet rates
When using the Webconnect function, a constant Internet connection is required.
Depending on the quality of the Internet connection, the data transfer volume for an inverter is
between 150 MB and 550 MB per month. When using the plant overview in Sunny Portal with live
data display, there is an additional data volume of 600 kB per hour.
• Since there is a constant Internet connection to Sunny Portal, time-based billing systems should
be avoided. High costs could be incurred. SMA recommends using an Internet flat rate.
If UMTS is used, VoIP is required
If UMTS is used, then use of the Webconnect function requires VoIP (Voice over IP).
• Ensure that the UMTS provider also provides the VoIP service.

(see Section 5.1 "Inverter Connection Area", page 22).
Additionally required material (not included in the scope of delivery):
☐ 1 network cable (see Section 5.2 "Cable Requirements and Information on Routing", page 25)
☐ 4 bootlace ferrules
Only use UL R/C Crimps (bootlace ferrules) with the manufacturer stated crimping tool.
☐ 1 RJ45 connector
☐ If the network cable is to be routed in a conduit:
– 1 rain-tight conduit fitting or conduit fitting for wet locations (diameter: 1 in.)
– 1 conduit (diameter: 1 in.)
Procedure:
1.
Danger to life due to electric shock when opening the inverter
High voltages are present in the conductive components of the inverter. Touching live
components results in death or serious injury.
• Disconnect the inverter from voltage sources on the AC and DC sides and open it
(see the inverter installation manual). Observe the waiting time to allow the capacitors to
discharge.
2. Push one filler plug from the inside out of the bottom of the inverter enclosure.
3. If a conduit is to be used, proceed as follows:
• Insert one rain-tight conduit fitting or conduit fitting for wet locations (diameter: 1 in.
[25.4 mm]) in the enclosure opening and tighten from the inside using a counter nut.
• Attach one conduit (diameter: 1 in. [25.4 mm]) to the enclosure opening.
• Lead the cable through the conduit into the inverter.
• Ground the cable shield at the inverter enclosure.

4. If no conduit is to be used, proceed as follows:
• Unscrew the counter nut of the cable gland.
• Push the sealing ring onto the adapter.
• Attach the cable gland to the enclosure
opening using the counter nut. Ensure that the
grooved side of the counter nut is facing the
inverter enclosure.
• Gauge the length from the communication terminal to the counter nut on the cable gland
with the cable, and mark the position on the cable. Be sure to take the permitted cable route
into account (see Section 5.1 "Inverter Connection Area", page 22).
• Below the marked position, remove 3⁄4 in.
(20 mm) from the cable sheath. This will enable
contact between the shield clamp in the cable
gland and the cable shield.

• Unscrew the swivel nut of the cable gland but do not remove it.
• Gradually guide the end of the cable through
the cable gland into the inverter, until you can
hear the shield clamp grip onto the cable
shield.
• Tighten the swivel nut of the cable gland. This will prevent the cable from slipping and the
contact between shield clamp and cable shield being lost.
5. At the cable end, remove 1 1⁄2 in. (40 mm) from the cable sheath and the cable shield.
Make sure that no pieces of cable are dropped into the inverter.
6. At the end of the cable, strip the insulation from the required four conductors by 1⁄4 in. (6 mm).
Take the type of cable into account, as listed below:

7. Shorten all other conductors flush with the cable sheath.
8. Attach the bootlace ferrules to the conductor ends. Only use UL R/C crimps (bootlace ferrules)
with the crimping tool specified by the manufacturer.

9.
Danger to life due to electric shock in case of incorrect cable insulation
In case of incorrect cable insulation, high voltages may occur on the cable outside the inverter.
• Guide the cable in the inverter through the insulating hose. The insulating hose must
completely cover the cable and the conductors inside the inverter enclosure.
• Cut the insulating hose to the required length, as necessary.
• Fix the insulating hose in position at the beginning and end of the cable, as necessary,
using cable ties. Cut off the ends of the cable ties. This will prevent the ends of the cable
ties causing damage to hot components in the inverter.
10. Connect the conductor ends to the communication terminal in the inverter at screw terminals
2, 3, 5 and 7 (torque: 0.23 Nm). Observe the permitted cable route (see Section 5.1 "Inverter
Connection Area", page 22) and the contact pin assignment as follows:
