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. Mr. Fronius kicked off with a repair shop for radios and electrical equipment and soon started making battery chargers, then welding transformers.

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. Its solar division has been operating in this field since 1992, so they have decades of experience - and this shows in Fronius inverter products.

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 recent 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 their inverters 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 Fronius 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 the company 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.

There are times where I can't gain access to the inverter data, but it comes through after a reload. Performance wise, I can't fault it.

It's only been a week, but it seems to be working absolutely fine. Yes, the fan is noisy, but that's not an issue for us, it's in the car port, away from the outside living area. No issues with the wifi or the app at all. We're glued to the app, so interesting to learn about our consumption and production in real time!

Linked through the smart meter to the web site and onto my phone app is brilliant. I can see what is being used at any given moment and see what the production is and whether or not I am able to switch on another appliance without it costing money. Even when I am away from home I can see what is happening.

Inverter is a bit noisy when running at full capacity because of fan operation. We knew that before installation, and installed it in the basement, away from living area, so the noise does not pose any problem at all.

Great app - my son and I call it the nerd app. We love the real time info.

The inverter itself is running well and the data package is excellent. We have panels on north and western roof faces. While this placement will no doubt lessen the peak performance achieved in the middle of the day, the inverter data is showing that we are now achieving self sufficiency until much later in the day compared to our old north facing system. The inverter data for the western pv string clearly shows output holding up till later than the north.
Only minor caution would be on inverter fan noise - the variable fan whine would be annoying should the inverter need to be installed within earshot of living areas.

This is a really good inverter, it heats up A LOT and can be noisy but still its very good.

With a company this big, their software is GARBAGE. the website is often unresponsive.
I set up my inverter on my phone and was able to see my data on there, once i logged off there was no record of my inverter data on there unless i added an install again,.

I could, however, see the data on the web. But then the website is unresponsive so i can't see anything? Only had this for 2 days by the way

As I had read the Fronius Inverter does have an internal fan which is discernible when running, it's not loud it's just there. Make sure you locate the Inverter in a location where it is not going to be an annoyance. For example I'm glad we move our inverter a little further to the back of the house so it is away from the living room.
