2.1 Appropriate Usage
The communication interface allows you to establish a connection via Bluetooth wireless technology
between individual SMA inverters as well as between SMA inverters and communication devices
(e.g., Sunny Explorer).
The SMA Bluetooth Piggy-Back provides data of the inverter for configuring and creating daily,
monthly, and annual energy values. These can be accessed and configured using a communication
device (e.g., Sunny Explorer).
The SMA Bluetooth Piggy-Back is compatible with all SMA Bluetooth devices in terms of radio
frequency.
The interface is provided as an add-on kit or pre-installed in the inverter. Please also observe the
respective inverter installation guide.
The following inverters can be retrofitted with the SMA Bluetooth Piggy-Back:
• SB3000US, SB4000US
• SB5000US, SB6000US, SB7000US
• SB8000TL-US, SB9000TL-US, SB10000TL-US
• WB3000US, WB3800US
• WB5000US, WB6000US, WB7000US, WB8000U
Displaying spot values and parameter values is possible. Inverters that cannot be configured via
the SMA Bluetooth Piggy-Back can be configured via the USB service interface and Sunny Data
Control or through RS485 and the Sunny WebBox.
The communication interface complies with the following standards:
• FCC Part 15
In addition, you will find a current overview of the standards at www.SMA-America.com. If you have
any questions, please contact SMA.
SMA offers the communication interface as an add-on kit or preinstalled on the inverter. Observe the

4.2 Installing the Communication Interface
Determining a free NetID before installing the SMA Bluetooth Piggy-Back
SMA recommends detecting a free NetID with a mobile communication device before installing the
communication interface. Some of the mobile communication devices you can choose include:
• Sunny Beam with Bluetooth
• Laptop with Bluetooth and Sunny Explorer software
You can find information on how to determine a free NetID in the respective manual of the
communication device.
Commissioning of a Bluetooth PV plant with 1 master
Always commission a Bluetooth PV plant with only 1 master (e.g., Sunny Beam with
Bluetooth, Sunny Explorer). As soon as the Bluetooth network is up and running, you can
integrate further masters into the Bluetooth network.
Sunny Beam with Bluetooth and SMA Bluetooth Repeater
The Sunny Beam with Bluetooth and the SMA Bluetooth Repeater cannot register any
Bluetooth devices which are set to NetID 1. The NetIDs of the inverters may only have
values from 2 to 9 and from A to F.

Electrical Connection
Proceed as follows to install the communication interface for the aforementioned SB, WB and
SWR inverter models:
DANGER
Risk of lethal electric shock when opening the inverter.
Death or serious injuries will result.
• Open the inverter as described in the inverter installation guide.
1. If another communication interface: is already installed, disconnect the installed communication
interface from the interface slot.
2. Plug the communication interface to the left of the
interface slot. The far right pins on the lower row of
pins remain free.
3. Set the NetID (see Section 4.3 „Setting the
Bluetooth Communication“ (Seite 13)).
4. Close the inverter as described in the inverter
installation guide.
☑ The communication interface is installed.
4.3 Setting the Bluetooth Communication
The inverter can communicate with a communication device and can be linked to other inverters via
Bluetooth. To ensure the devices communicate with each other and are interlinked, they have to be
set to the same NetID.
NetID
The NetID serves to distinguish PV plants with SMA Bluetooth in close proximity of each
another. SMA Bluetooth devices recognize your Bluetooth PV plant via an assigned NetID.
The NetID can be a number from 1 to 9 or a letter from A to F. NetID 1 is not possible for
Sunny Beam with Bluetooth.

Setting the NetID
The NetID is set via the rotary switch on the SMA Bluetooth Piggy-Back.
1. Use a screwdriver (1/8 in. / 2.5 mm) to turn the
arrow on the rotary switch to the correct position.
The meanings of the switch positions are explained
in the following table.

The device can interlink with all SMA Bluetooth products with the same
NetID.
2. Close the inverter as described in the inverter installation guide.
☑ The NetID is set. You can detect the inverter with a communication product (e.g., computer with
Sunny Explorer).
5 Update
The SMA Bluetooth Piggy-Back is updated via the Sunny Explorer. It is not required to replace the
Piggy-Back. Existing settings and data of the inverter will be saved after the update process. Only
perform the update if the inverter has sufficient feeding-in power to the grid of at least 50 W. Restart
the Sunny Explorer if the update was successful.

The inverter (with SMA
Bluetooth Piggy-Back) is not in
feeding-in operation.
The SMA Bluetooth Piggy-Back
is not correctly connected.
The NetID is set to 0.

Bluetooth devices which are set
to NetID 1.
The connection between the
inverter (with SMA
Bluetooth Piggy-Back) and
the communication device is
often interrupted.
The inverter will not perform
the Bluetooth Piggy-Back
update.
Installation Guide
Corrective measure
Commission the inverter as described
in the inverter installation guide.
Wait until the inverter switches to
feeding-in operation.
Check if the SMA Bluetooth
Piggy Back is correctly placed on the
interface slot (see page12).
Set the NetID of your PV plant
(see page 13).
Determine a free NetID, as
described in the Sunny Beam with
Bluetooth manual. Only NetIDs from
2 to 9 and from A to F are possible.
Set the detected NetID of your
PV plant (see page 13).
Set the NetID of your PV plant
(see page 13).
