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.

We opted to add the Fronius Smart Meter, the level of data available to us as a homeowner to see how the system is performing is excellent.
The app/PC portal are both very detailed and easy to navigate.

It's changed the way we use our power to minimise consumption from the grid and maximise $$$ savings.

The Fronius Inverter is installed in a garage.The WiFi data transmission signal from the Inverter is relatively weak.

I had to purchase a stronger router for my household WiFi network in order to be able pick-up the relatively weak data signal that broadcasts from the Fronius inverter. The data is produced by a Fronius 'smart meter', and is then WiFi broadcast from the Inverter.

only had the system 1 week so cant comment yet other than inverter is just a tiny bit noisy during day when sun is out due to the fan working hard, also due to fact it is not far from my home office window which I like to have open. to be clear though it is only noticeable when the house is dead quiet and sun is beaming on a sunny day, so is quite minor.

We have a 6.3 kW PV array connected to a Fronius 5 kW inverter (within the 33% over rating capacity limit). In general, inverters thermatic fans are relatively noisy and are audible throughout most of our house on quiet days, and whilst they have two speed settings, the higher speed is selected by default and it is not clear if and when the lower speed should be selected (winter etc). The WiFi connection has dropped out a few times, but system reliability seems good (install date 9th June 19).

On-line monitoring is excellent, and also with the on-line access to the mains supplier meter, makes for a very precise check on all aspects of the system. However programming is rather complicated(we recently went to NBN) and this knocked the access off. SAE Group kindly sent us a video how set it up again(it was much more than just hitting a few buttons!!). A visit from the electrician is expensive if a rehash of any parameters is necessary such as setting the inverter hot water timer with it's "on" level of power of solar output.

The ONLY support Fronius offer, and this after calling and visiting in person, is to contact a certified solar installation company to visit and problem solve. Fronius will not even help explain the messages shown in the display screen of their own product. Present as a very professional global company. Unfortunately the post-sales support in Australia (Tullamarine - Melbourne) is pretty much non-existent for the end customer. Per the installer, you will probably be very happy if nothing goes wrong and infuriated if something does go wrong.

The Fronius has worked reliably and to expectations. The only minor issue I've had is that it occasionally drops its connection to my wifi which means I can't see input-output data. Easy fix is to go outside turn it off, then turn it back on and within a minute or so all is working again. This may be an issue with the wifi system Fronius employs or it could be my own home wifi problem. It hasn't happened in recent months so maybe this issue has now been resolved anyway.

Each day the system shuts down with a message - 'Status Code 102 - AC Voltage too high'. I understand that this has something to do with the load being fed back into the grid and 253 volts. United Energy were to monitor this and make some form of adjustment but this never happened. The shutdown is only for short periods so it is not a worry. We are constantly sending much more power than we use back into the grid.

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.

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.

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.

So far the inverter seems to be doing a great job. The app for iPhone to monitor the solar production is a bit clunky, but the actual inverter is fine

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.

As mentioned we had 2 x 30kwh systems installed, both Fronius units, as we had some previous experience with other Fronius products and we consider these top of the range.

12 Months on, the system is working trouble free. During summers days we are regulary producing 36kwhs or more. It has been money well spent and we're happy to continue to recommend. It does get very hot when working however I've found that other reviews indicate that this is normal.

System is user friendly and it has not missed a beat. There was lightning activity about 8 months ago but it did not affect our system.
The system that this one replaced was affected and taken out by lightning activity.

Sometimes inverter goes into "WAIT" mode and it's recalibrating? Don't know whether it is producing energy in that mode?
