SMA Multigateway and Sunny Boy 240

Hi everyone,

i'm using an SMA Multigateway with two Sunny Boys 240, and i've installed SBFspot on ubuntu.
The software works fine. But when i take a look an the AC Spot Data on Phase 1, it shows only the watts for one of the Sunny Boys.

Is it not possible to get the data for both of them? When i take a look on the Sunny Explorer it shows me for example 310W (Inv1: 152W Inv2: 185W) and the SBFspot list writes

AC Spot Data:
Phase 1 Pac :   0.152W - Uac: 231.40V - Iac:  0.657A
DC Spot Data:
String 1 Pdc:   0.000kW - Udc:  28.15V - Idc:  0.000A
String 2 Pdc:   0.000kW - Udc:   0.00V - Idc:  0.000A
Is this an config problem?

This SB240 seems to be a special case...
Can you give some more info on how they are connected and what IP-address you have in the config (the one of the SMA gateway or inverter?)
There is another topic for this type of inverter

Hi,

okay my config look like this..

Multigate
|
SunnyBoy 240 --- solar module
|
SunnyBoy 240 --- solar module

Its the same config, as mentioned in the other topic. But with two SB240.

I
ve tried the code changes, but it's the same problem.

In my config file, i've used the ip address from the multigate. I don't have another IP! The Sunnyboys are connected over powerlan (speedwire),
and the internal ip`s are invisible for me.

Here are the complete output

When i take a look to the sunny explorer software - the device 1915011942 is for the multigate. But i also have two extra serials for the single inverter.
In my case

1920105811 and 1920105880

I use SBFSpot with the following adaptation
(around line 465):
if (Inverters[0]->DevClass == SolarInverter)
to
if ((Inverters[0]->DevClass == SolarInverter) || (Inverters[0]->DevClass == CommunicationProduct))
