SMA’s Data Manager M: elevates monitoring and control
The SMA Data Manager M, the successor to the tried and tested SMA Cluster Controller, ensures optimal communication, monitoring and in the future will also ensure control of all energy flows. The new user interface enables quick and easy commissioning, monitoring of up to 50 instead of the previously 25 devices (PV inverters, battery inverters, I/O systems and energy meters) as well as even simpler remote parameterization and maintenance of decentralized commercial PV systems via Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS.
By providing satellite-based measured values, such as solar irradiation, outdoor temperature, cell temperature and wind speed, no additional measuring devices need to be installed in the system. As a result, PV system operators can assess the performance of all PV systems in their portfolio at a glance, and investors receive a neutral proof of performance. As a central interface to Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS, the SMA Data Manager M is a key component for the intelligent energy management of SMA. It offers entirely new possibilities such as for data recording and analysis. EnnexOS from SMA is a cross-sector platform for holistic, intelligent energy management. (nhp)
