SMA SOLAR READOUT

Solar at last weblog post from several years ago and the SMA Relay, based on a JeeNode v6. The Bluetooth readout code was derived from Stuart Pittaway’s Nanode SMA PV Monitor code. This project is for a friend who’s birthday is coming up shortly, and who has the same SMA 5000TL inverter as I do - although it can probably be used with other models. Here is the gadget, powered off 5V USB: There’s no RF relay ...
