Establishing a direct connection via WLAN


Requirements:

  • The product must be commissioned.

  • An end device (e.g. computer, tablet PC or smartphone) must be available.

  • The respective latest version of one of the following web browsers must be installed: Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari.

  • JavaScript must be enabled in the web browser of the end device.

  • The SMA Grid Guard code of the Installer must be available for the changing of grid-relevant settings after completion of the first ten feed-in hours or installation assistant (see "Application for SMA Grid Guard Code" at www.SMA-Solar.com).

SSID, IP address and WLAN password

  1. SSID in WLAN: SMA[serial number] (e.g. SMA0123456789)
  2. Device-specific WLAN password: see WPA2-PSK on the type label of the product or the rear side of the manual included in delivery
  3. Standard access address for a direct connection via WLAN outside of a local network: http://smalogin.net or 192.168.12.3

Importing and exporting files with end devices having an iOS operating system is not possible.

For technical reasons, importing and exporting files (e.g., importing an inverter configuration, saving the current inverter configuration or exporting events and parameters) is not possible with mobile end devices having an iOS operating system.

  1. Use an end device that does not have an iOS operating system for importing and exporting files.

You have several options to connect the product to an end device. The procedure can be different depending on the end devices. If the procedures described do not apply to your end device, establish the direct connection via WLAN as described in the manual of your end device.

The following connection options ar available:

  • Connection with WPS

  • Connection with WLAN network search

Connection with WPS

Requirement:

  • The end device must have a WPS function.

Procedure:

  1. Enable the WPS function on the inverter. To do this, tap on the enclosure lid of the inverter twice.
  2. The blue LED flashes quickly for approx. two minutes. The WPS function is active during this time.
  3. Enable the WPS function on your end device.
  4. The end device automatically connects to the inverter. The web browser of your end device opens and the login page of the user interface is displayed.
  5. If the web browser of your end device does not open automatically and the login page of the user interface is not displayed, open the web browser and enter http://smalogin.net in the address bar.

Connection with WLAN network search

  1. Search for WLAN networks with your end device.
  2. Select the SSID of the inverter SMA[serial number] in the list with the found WLAN networks.
  3. Enter the device-specific WLAN password (see WPA2-PSK on the type label of the product or the rear side of the manual included in delivery).
  4. Open the web browser of your end device and enter http://smalogin.net in the address bar.
  5. The login page of the user interface is displayed.
  6. If the login page of the user interface does not open, enter the IP address 192.168.12.3 or, if your end device supports mDNS services, SMA[serial number].local or http://SMA[serial number] in the address bar of the web browser.
