SolarEdge SetApp l’APP on all new inverters

By 2019 all new inverters will have new communication cards that will lead us to use the APP SolarEdge SetApp.

The transition from the compact inverters to the three phasic inverters with the synergy technology in SolarEdge is directed towards an even easier installation, set off and reliability of the products.

Inverters equipped with internal access point

All the new SolarEdge inverters will not have the display because they will be equipped with an integrated access point to which we can connect with any mobile device (smarphone, tablet).

In this way the inverter’s display becomes the device itself thanks to the APP SolarEdge SetApp. Many data will be available including the commodity of monitoring the inverter or all the inverters installed directly from the smartphone. It allows a quick intervention in case of errors and a monitoring of the yields for a better management oriented to an increasing self- consumption.

SolarEdge Products

The inverters involved in this improvement are the monophasic HD-Wave SE2000H-SE6000H, the three phasic  SE12.5K-SE33.3K, the three phasic with synergy technology SE50K-SE82.8K and SE66.6K-SE100K.

Set off and configuration of the inverter

The set off and the configurations of the inverter are carried out with the menu of the application SetApp on the smartphone by creating a local Wi-Fi connection. In this way we can automatically update the system firmware in order to have an inverter that is always updated.

New accessories compatible to SolarEdge inverters

Moreover, this new version of inverters will offer advanced communicating options that can be paired with new accessories such as:

  • Wi-Fi aerial
  • Plug-In for Smart Energy products with aerial
  • Plug-In for communication via GSM (P/N: SE1000-GSM02-b)
  • Plug-In for protection device against overvoltage RS485

For the communication via Wi-Fi it will not be required to buy an additional card (P/N SE1000-WIFI01) because it’s already integrated.

The inverter still maintains some system LED lights in the lower part. They show if the installation is producing, if it is communicating with the monitoring platform or eventual system errors.
