Establishing a Connection via WLAN in the Local Network


New IP address for connecting with a local network

If the product is connected to a local network (e.g. via a router), the product will receive a new IP address. Depending on the type of configuration, the new IP address will be assigned automatically by the DHCP server (router) or manually by you. Upon completion of the configuration, the product can only be reached via the following access addresses:

  1. Generally applicable access address: IP address manually assigned or assigned by the DHCP server (router) (identification via network scanner software or network configuration of the router).
  2. Access address for Apple and Linux systems: SMA[serial number].local (e.g. SMA0123456789.local)
  3. Access address for Windows and Android systems: http://SMA[serial number] (e.g., http://SMA0123456789)

Requirements:

  • The product must be commissioned.

  • The product must be integrated into the local network. Tip: There are various methods of integrating the product into the local network with the aid of the installation assistant.

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

  • The end device must be in the same local network as the product.

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

  • 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).

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.

Procedure:

  1. Enter the IP address of the inverter in the address bar of the web browser.
  2. The login page of the user interface opens.
