# Fronius Binding

This binding uses the Fronius Solar API V1 (opens new window) to obtain data from Fronius devices.

It supports Fronius inverters and Fronius Smart Meter. Tested with a Fronius Symo 8.2-3-M and Fronius Smart Meter 63A.

# Supported Things

Thing Type Description
bridge The Bridge
powerinverter Fronius Galvo, Symo and other Fronius inverters in combination with the Fronius Datamanager 1.0 / 2.0 or Fronius Datalogger. You can add multiple inverters that depend on the same datalogger with different device ids. (Default 1)
meter Fronius Smart Meter. You can add multiple smart meters with different device ids. (The default id = 0)

# Discovery

There is no discovery implemented. You have to create your things manually and specify the hostname or IP address of the Datalogger and the device id.

# Binding Configuration

The binding has no configuration options, all configuration is done at bridge, powerinverter or meter level.

# Thing Configuration

# Bridge Thing Configuration

Parameter Description
hostname The hostname or IP address of your Fronius Datalogger
refreshInterval Refresh interval in seconds

# Powerinverter Thing Configuration

Parameter Description
deviceId The identifier of your device (Default: 1)

# Meter Thing Configuration

Parameter Description
deviceId The identifier of your smart meter (Default: 0)
