Fronius Solar Web - data logging issues


Recommended Posts

I had a system installed this week with a Fronius Primo 8.2  & smart meter and am having trouble with the data logging.   

Day 1.   system online ~midday.    Installer hadn't set up my viewing permission so I didn't check data at all.

Day 2.    Logs fine from  start of Day 1 to ~7am day 2 but then stopped logging until ~4pm.     At 4pm both the website and app accurately updated the missing 7am to 4pm data and continued to log fine to end of day.  

Day 3.   Logged fine from midnight to  ~7am then stopped  logging,  until ~1:30pm,  at which time the website updated but data was not accurate  (shows constant 3.91kW for the 6.5hrs duration but  when actual was  ~3 to 8kW).    It  just logged that one data point at 1:30pm then nothing since.          The solar web iphone app  history page is  still showing yesterdays history so is even worse than the website.

I've contact my installer and he's not sure what the problem is.

I'm suspecting my wifi as the inverter is on the edge of coverage,   but the fact the live data always seems fine makes me think not.   

 

any suggestions??   

anyone had similar issues in the past or lately?

cheers

@manchu I'd suspect WiFi connection reliability. I never count on wifi, and always run a cable if possible. My Fronius is hard wired, and I never have issues (unless I'm fiddling, which I'm prone to).

 

Another thing to make sure of is that Night Mode is set to 'ON' in your inverter. If you have a Fronius Smart Meter, you MUST have night mode enabled so your logging works correctly.

 

I've made a little video for you here on how to do it.

 

Cheers,

Jason.

I think you're right.    A home network upgrade is on the cards so I'll  run a cable.

Thanks for the tip and vid.   I checked and it was already ON.  

The logging does seems better now than the first few days.   I haven't noticed any big delays (several hours) in history updating recently,  but that might be because I'm not looking at as often now the novelty has worn off a little.

    • With a name like Full Range, I expect nothing less! 🙂 Thanks again for the reply. No Gas here and electric HWS. Average 22 kW per day. I have so many aspects to my Stereo and would love to know what it all uses. Lots on small power supplies running different items. I could try and put it all on one plug and use one of those little meters. In the past year have replaced a few things. Got a new fridge 520L kitchen, New F&P Front loader washing machine, New 65" TV's and threw out my 2nd 20yr old fridge I had in back garage all in the hope of lowering my Energy bills. Replaced all lights with LED's. Still after all this my bills are high for me at the average 22kW/day. Looking forward to Solar ASAP. 🙂  
    • My average use going by my past power bills is 14 kw per day  I don’t have advanced power monitoring but can inform you that my power bills have been reduced by 2 thirds  I mainly work nights so I consume most of the energy during the day  Energy use breakdown  Aircon system , 25 yo refrigerator , large 70” TV , washing machine, dishwasher, spa pool heating, and a huge stereo @Marc knows about my HiFi system    Please note that I have solar hot water and gas for cooking hence my lower daily power use   
    • Just a couple of questions to the ones who have the great monitoring. How many units does one typically feed back into the grid in a day? Also what does it take to max out Solar? Like could I use my Stereo, 2x Split Air Con. Then expect I could still use the dishwasher and Washing machine. Plus start vacuuming and also put the kettle on of course. 🙂 Just trying to gauge what system I can take advantage of in kW. 6.6kW or 10kW and what to expect in managing my usage. Like is the vacuum cleaner or the kettle already say using 20% each of your generated solar energy. Washing machine 10% etc Just a rough guide if possible? Would like to not be using power from the grid as much as possible in those daylight hours but don't want to over capitalize if there's no point.
    • These are the 330W panels that were recommended for me so you can compare the specs  https://www.trunsunsolar.com/wp-content/uploads/download/au/EN-DUDRIVE-TSHM-120L-AU.pdf   And this is the inverter  Sungrow is the worlds number one inverter manufacturer  https://service.sungrowpower.com.au/files/Web_Files/FAQ/Crystal/Troubleshooting/UM_201803_Crystal G2_SG3K_5K-D Datasheet_V1.0.pdf
    • Yes with only 3c feed in tariff, it got me thinking of 8kW Inverter and 10kW panels. So I could use a lot more items in the day hours instead of watching everything I use. I take it both sides with the panels wont always see the sun together. Mornings will be at most 5kW and late afternoons 5kW. 10kw in mid day times. The lay out from the last quote with them on the metal roof. Just sent a new quote to me with 24x 440w JINKO Tiger-pro Mono Facial TR technology + Half Cell Total is $7500. I did not ask for these panels but I think he thought they might be worth going to as there will be less of them. Maybe could reduce the price considerably with cheaper panels? Any good cheaper ones or is it worth spending the extra on good panels?   Not sure which Inverter to go for but he suggested Fonius or SMA.
