Announcement: WebSolarLog troubles in combination with SMAspot

The last days we heard from users that they have troubles with Websolarlog in combination with SMAspot.We investigated a few of these issues and our conclusion is;
WebSolarLog is not compatible with other versions then SMAspot 2.0.4We strongly advice all WebSolarLog users with SMAspot to only use “SMAspot 2.0.4” until we have solved this issue.

At the moment we work, with the SMAspot developers, on a SMAspot version which is fully compatible with WebSolarLog for now and the future.

We apologize for this issue and hope to solve it soon.

Support for SMA Sunny Boy BlueTooth

Today we added full support for the SMA Sunny Boy BlueTooth solar inverters.
This means that WebSolarLog can log the Sunny Boy inverters with a BlueTooth connection.

The connection with the inverter is made by SMA-spot version 2.0.4 only.
Follow the installation guide of SMA-spot and add the Full path of SMA-spot to the WebSolarLog admin in the Advanced tab and WSL now logs your SMA BlueTooth inverter.

We have tested the WebSolarLog SMA blueTooth support with the following inverters:

  • SMA SB3000-TL21
  • SMA SB2000-HF30
  • SMA SB2500-TLST-21

Log your SMA Solar Inverter

WebSolarLog is a Solar logger and compatible with almost every SMA inverter that has a RS485 connection.

We tested the logger with the following SMA inverters:

  • SB2100 TL

Based on our test results, we can say that WebSolarLog probably work on all SMA inverters.

If your solar inverter is not in the list above, and you have succesfully tested your SMA inverter with WSL, we would appreciate a comment. We then add your SMA type to the list with tested devices.
