About Fronius, Solar Inverters

Fronius solar inverters review

Fronius Customer Service: 03 8340 2900

Fronius is a European company that was established by founder Günter Fronius in Austria in 1945.

The company grew over time from being a welding and battery charger manufacturer to become one of the most prominent European players in the solar market. Fronius’s solar division has been operating in this field since 1992.

In late 2010, Fronius opened its Australian office, based in Melbourne where it not only provides customer service and technical assistance, but also offers product demonstrations and training courses.

Fronius make some of the best inverters in the world. They used to be playing catch up with SMA in terms of industry reputation and quality, but I would argue they have well and truly caught up in the last 5 years. I would happily have one of these inverters on my house.

The inverters are easy to 'export limit', if your local network insists on this as part of your solar connection agreement. But you do have to buy the 'Fronius Smart Meter (FSM)' accessory to do this (about $500 extra). The FSM also allows full consumption monitoring (over and above solar monitoring) although I am not a fan of the Fronius SolarWeb monitoring software.

Personally, I prefer Solar Analytics and always recommend adding Solar Analytics to your Fronius inverter and using that for monitoring instead.

Fronius solar inverters usually come with 2 solar inputs (or MPPTs). Their MPPT efficiency is legendary. And if you have a symmetrical east/west facing roof you can often put both the east and the west array into one input - leaving the second inverter input free for a third roof area.

The only downside with the Fronius hardware that I am aware of is they are fan cooled and can be rather noisy. Keep them away from living areas!

Fronius Solar Inverter Warranty Notes

All Fronius string inverters are accompanied by 5 years Fronius Warranty Plus. However, by registering at www.solarweb.com, customers can receive an additional 5 years warranty free of charge.

If you should experience what you believe to be a warranty related issue with your inverter, you should first contact the original installer of the unit. However, if that installer is no longer around, don't panic.

Fronius advise that in this situation they first require the customer to find an qualified solar installer to verify the issue with the inverter - but this needs to be paid for my the customer. Once the issue has been confirmed, the installer will then contact Fronius on your behalf. Fronius will then work with the installer to arrange for replacement of the inverter. If a customer needs help in finding an installer, the company is able to make a recommendation.

The Fronius inverter has been a good unit so far (8 months). Almost gave it 5 stars, but I've had a few very minor issues:
- It's quite noisy, especially at higher loads and temperatures.
- It took a number of firmware updates to finally fix the problem of it turning on and off repeatedly at night.
- Had an error one day that prevented it from working the entire day until it was restarted.

That is nitpicking though, and it has been a really good unit so far.

It failed on two occasions, on days of hot weather. This was fixed by changing a component in the meter box (?some sort of fuse). The wireless is not working. The installer managed to get it going but it didn't last very long. AG Solar then sent out an electrician to hard wire it to the computer but he had no idea of what to do and so it remains. I wrote to Fronius and they have sent me instructions which I have not dared to try.

I also have a Tigo system installed. Since installation the light on the box has shone yellow instead of green. Nobody seems to know what this means and no-one is interested in fixing it. According to the on-line manual it is a warning light that something is wrong. Some of the panels have a yellow band but again no-one can tell me what this means

The ventilation fans on the unit are louder than I had expected. This is both good and bad. On one hand it is an extra environmental noise on the wall of my house that occasionally becomes annoying and on the other hand it prompts me to look over the system status whenever I walk past. In hindsight I should have opted for a larger inverter to make the most of the great solar panels that I purchased.

I also had a Fronius 'Smart Meter' installed which allows me to track production, consumption, and feed-in via an app. Without this I would have no idea how much I am producing, using, or sending to the grid. To get the most out of a system I think you need to be a bit 'nerdy' to monitor these things. I have been able to show my partner what out production graph looks like on a typical sunny day and cloudy day. At any time we can check the app to see that we are making enough power to turn on certain appliances.

Early days with our new system however Fronius has a solid reputation so I'm not expecting too many issues.

Just be aware that the Fronius inverters have forced cooling rather than being passively cooled which means that there is some noise from the fan which becomes louder as the output of the inverter increases. If this is a concern for you, I would recommend having the inverter installed in a garage or somewhere where the noise won't bother you.

It runs beautifully. I can walk past and just smile when the screen tells me how much power it is drawing from the sun. The app is pretty good and this is the only thing that stops me giving this 5 stars. I can view what the system is doing from anywhere on my smartphone or on a web app. I am not completely confident with the estimated dollar saving/earning that it is giving me but suspect that if I looked hard into it I would get a reading that is helpful. But the system just does everything nicely without any interaction from me.

I have had this system in place now for 9 months. We were provided with a written estimation of performance from MC Electrical and this system is far surpassing what we expected. We are in credit every month and love the automated reporting that you can set up through the Fronius Site, I am able to keep my power company honest. We are very happy with this system and paid more for than we had initially planned to but with the system performing like it does we have no doubt we made the right decision to spend a little more on a quality system. There have been no issues until Telstra modem failed and had to try and connect the Fronius back up to the new Wifi, MC Electrical were eager to assist but used google to get the help I needed before they had time to contact me. Happy to provide the system with a 5 star rating as well as the team at MC Electrical a 5 star rating.

The status indicator lights are very difficult to see. For several months I could see no lights at all. By accident, I happened to be indirect line of site to the light aperture and I could see a green light.

The Fronius app. for seeing power generation did show the same as the digital display on the invertor. After several requests, Fronius informed me that there was a problem with this app.! I know log in to their website and I can see power generation in real time and over the past hour, day, month and year. It does not display my consumption from my PV system. I have been told this is only displayed if I have a smart meter. I am still waiting for an answer to my question of can I add a smart meter and at what cost.

A feature of the Fronius inverter that I appreciate is the ability to monitor the system performance in real time from my phone of computer. It gives me peace of mind at any time to confirm that the system is all working correctly.
There have been times when we have been away on holiday and due to unrelated electrical problems in our house, the safety switch tripped and shut down all power in our house. I was able to spot this on the Fronius app on my phone - it showed zero power generation. and I was able to get in touch with someone to go to our house and sort out the problem (not related to the solar system), and get everything online again.

It manages the hot water system via the smart meter and a relay ,which judiciously uses bits of excess power that would otherwise feed to the grid, and we have never had to use grid boost even on cloudy days. This saves us having a separate solar hot water system on the roof and yet still gives us a big system. The element has been downsized to 1800W but that has proved perfectly adequate for a 315L nominal system.

The inverter seems to be working properly, according to the feedback I'm getting from Solar Analytics. The connection from the inverter to the modem ceased working about a month after installation, and it is not a simple matter to re-connect, at least for this 75 year old. I haven't bothered to get the installers to re-connect (I live less than a kilometre from their premises, so it wouldn't be difficult), because Solar Analytics tell me all I need to know, and I believe the feedback from the inverter is unnecessary (please let me know if I'm wrong).

The Fronius has a fan that runs to cool the inverter that makes a small amount of noise, and I expect will need bearings or replacing some years down the track, whereas my other older Goodwe inverter does not have a fan. Both 3 phase 5KwH units still working well with the Fronius making up to 6KwH more power over the day as it has 6.6Kw of panels rather than the 5.2Kw for the Goodwe.

The system has been running for approximately 8 months (Feb-Oct) and has performed better than I had expected and have had no issues (as should be the case in the first years). I highly recommend purchasing a top-shelf inverter and ensure that it is installed in the coolest location possible - it runs very hot when the temperature is upwards of 30C. There was a small amount of mucking around to set up the basic web monitoring feature which has been working well since. If I had my time again, I would have paid extra for the Fronius Smart Meter so that I could play around with usage measurements a bit more. In terms of dollar savings, my power bills for the period were down by approximately 80% which is significantly more than I had anticipated. I borrowed the money to fund my system and I'm still in front, so very happy with that.

From 13KW on the roof (already had 5KW) I’m seeing a peak output of just over 12KW. Couldn’t be happier.

Tends to run very hot in summer months. Trims the output at 5046 watts, probably due to capacity restraints, however if you install a 6.5 Kw system why not have a matching inverter?

The Fronius is a very tidy package that emits a minor hum. We also have Goodwe inverter that connects to the battery, and is quieter. It has various cables coming and going. Our installation positioning is out of the way.

It seems to be working very reliably. I took 1 star off, as it is quite noisy when operating on full power, something I wasn't aware off beforehand.

It has behaved fault-free. The manufacturer has provided firmware updates, but you have to look for them. The Fronius website for monitoring power production is easy to use and informative.
