Benefits and functionalities

An integration in two phases

In a first phase, you are asked to register your new PV systems in Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS. Your login credentials for Sunny Portal Classic are also valid for Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS.

In the next phase, your existing PV systems will be integrated into ennexOS*. You will receive an email from us before the integration notifying you about the timing. After SMA has successfully completed this integration you will be informed with a separate email. From then on, you can access all your installations’ data in Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS and enjoy the benefits of one unique professional platform for smart energy management.

All users for each PV system will be added to the new PV system with their original access rights.

Shortly after the integration the plant on the classic Sunny Portal will no longer receive live data updates. All energy data for the entire lifetime of the system and power data from up to 60 days in the past will be transferred to the new system following the integration. These data will begin accumulating from the day of integration onward.

Tigo will no longer be supported. This means that your panel layout with the individual panel data will no longer be visible in Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS. If you have Cloud Connect Advanced you can log into the Tigo portal to view module data for your system.

If you are using the SMA Energy App, as an installer or as an end user, it will show data from the new PV installation as that has been added to your Sunny Portal account.


* Systems with Sunny WebBox and SMA Cluster Controller remain on Sunny Portal Classic.

Update April 2020

Sensor data on the Dashboard

With this release, it will be possible to display current measured values from sensors, that are present in a PV system, directly on the dashboard. Until now, the measured values were only available via the "Analysis Pro" view.

At the plant level, the sensors that were configured under the menu item Configuration > Sensor assignment are automatically displayed.
At the device level e.g. for a Moxa I/Os also all sensor channels are displayed on the device dashboard. Even reported percentages can be displayed, for example to represent the filling level of a diesel generator.

The individual sensor widgets can be turned on/off for each dashboard.


Simplified navigation

We have optimized the usability of the navigation bar. Until now, it was possible to jump directly to a status list with one click or, if you only clicked on the symbol, to select individual elements directly in the navigation via a submenu. It was difficult to understand and hardly recognizable.
From now on, one click always opens a submenu in which you can directly select a corresponding sub section or a device etc.. The detour via the status list is omitted.
You can now access the status list both via an additional entry in the "Monitoring" function area and via the submenu in the navigation bar.

We have also cleaned up the submenu itself, which is called up via the navigation bar. In the upper area, all grouped elements are now directly one below the other. They are also marked with their distinctive symbol. This makes it much easier to differentiate between the individual entries.


Update September 2019

Faster site setup

  • Less is more
    With this release we simplify the registration of a new site.
    It is now no longer necessary to enter the address data of the installer and the system owner. This is only needed if the site is monitored by our integrated "Smart Connected“ feature.
    When registering the site, you only have to select whether you are the installer or if you are the owner of the system yourself.
  • Invite new users
    Until now, it was necessary that users already have a Sunny Portal account before they could be given access to a site. That was complicated. From now on, you can invite new users to the ennexOS platform, both directly during the initial site setup and from the user administration of a site.


Introduction of user roles

There was always the possibility to assign certain access rights to each. This allowed to specify what type of information a user could view or edit. However, the rights do not tell anything about the function of a person in relation to the site. With this update, we introduce the following user roles:

  • Owner
  • Installer
  • Operator

The assignment of the roles currently has no further effect. On the one hand, it serves as documentation and on the other hand it allows us to address the right person either in regards to “Smart Connected” or other cases.


More improvements

  • Dashboard widgets
    With this update, we have adjusted the times shown in the dashboard widgets. So far, the last 24 hours, the last 7 days and the last 30 days were shown there. That was apparently not optimal.
    The widgets now show the current day, the current month and the current year.
  • Notification Center
    In the upper navigation bar, there is now a new icon, a "bell". There you find our new notification center, which will inform about updates of Sunny Portal itself and will show important events of the user´s sites.
  • New menu structure
    We have sorted the menu items and aligned them across the different site hierarchies, making them easier to find.
  • New report with detailed device information
    Within the notifications, a new report is available with this release. Detailed information about all the PV inverters and their performance are listed in tabular form. In addition, when the inverter comparison is activated, devices that performed outside the defined tolerance are marked in color.

Update June 2019

Russian as new Language supported

New Features for „Analysis Pro“

  • Production Comparison
    Besides the tab „Detailed Analysis“ there is now a new tab „Energy & Power“. Within this new view the user is able to easily compare absolute and specific yields of inverters for individual days, months and years. In addition to that it is possible to do comparisons with multiple plants.
  • Personalized selection of measurements
    Within the left filter sidebar the user has now access to the new feature “Channel Profiles”. They allow the user to easily select various basic measurement combinations that are predefined through SMA. Additionally the user is able to save individual combinations of measurements as his own “Channel Profiles”, which will then be available for all plants in the portfolio.

Update March 2019

New functions for Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS

  • Supports the exchange of a SUNNY WEBBOX against a SMA Data Manager
    Energy and power data of existing plants with one or several Sunny WEBBOXes can be transfered from Sunny Portal Classic to Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS when you create a new plant.
    Before that only the transfer of plants with the SMA Cluster Controller was possible.
  • Support of plural SMA Data Manager in one plant (Master/Slave configuration)
    From now on plural SMA Data Manager can be registered in one plant. This can be necessary when a plant has more than the 50 devices which are supported by the SMA Data Manager M or e.g. large existing plants with plural Sunny WebBoxes or SMA Cluster Controller which should be converted to the SMA Data Manager M.
    During the commissioning an operating modus can be selected which determines the role of the Data Manager within the plant. Either he is a Master and can control the entire system and sends control commands to subordinate SMA Data Manager M´s and inverters or he is configured as a Slave an is only able to receive control demands from the Master send them to the inverter.
    For now there is only one Master and one grid connection point in the entire plant.
  • Virtual devices on base of energy meters
    With the release it is now possible to visualize other energy producers in the system, besides PV. The following virtual devices can be implemented and monitored energetically:
    • CHP unit
    • Diesel generator
    • Hydro power plant
    Within the plant the devices are implemented manually. Either the measured data can be entered into the portal the device is connected to an energy meter which has a connection to the SMA Data Manager. The delivers the data for the device.
    Besides new energy sources virtual inverters (several foreign inverters) can be implemented into the system with an extra energy meter.
  • View of energy sources within the energy balance
    When there are plural energy sources monitored there is the possibility to see all energy sources an their interactions.
  • Data migration of plants with a SUNNY WEBBOX from ‚Sunny Portal Classic‘ to Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS:
    Data of WebBox plants from the Classic Portal can be copied in the ennexOS portal, if instead of the WebBox a EDMM (and COM GW) is implemented.
  • Support of large plants with more than one Data Manager M within one plant:
    The EDMM supports up to 50 devices. If there are more devices in the plant (e.g. an old WebBox), then the EDMM´s can be matched in one plant. Hint: New plants only, no already registered plants
  • Cross Sector Energy Monitoring
    For the expansion of "Cross Sector Energy Monitoring" abilities we support other producers besides PV. Visualization of further energy producers in the energy balance which are implmented with meters (SMA Energy Meter or other Modbus TCP meters):
    • CHP unit
    • Diesel generator
    • Hydro power plant
