Point-to-point commissioning with Flex-series inverters

Commissioning procedure applicable to all Flex-series inverters:  H2.5, H3A H4A, H5A Flex

To commission the inverters you will need:

  • MyDeltaSolar App installed on your iOS or Android smartphone
  • A properly installed H2.5/H3A/H4A/H5A solar inverter
  • A direct connection (point-to-point) between your inverter and smartphone.  The distance should not be more than 8 meters.

1. First download and install the App. 

2. Power on the inverter 

 

 

 

 

 

As soon as the inverter is supplied with AC voltage, the Wi-Fi module activates automatically. Only one mobile device can be active at the same time.

3. Load factory setting

The inverter can be reset to the factory settings by pressing the reset button (30 seconds).

As soon as the Wi-Fi LED flashes every second, the reset button can be released.  Finally, disconnect the inverter from the grid for about 2 minutes.

Wi-Fi Inverter & DC1 Data Collector Commissioning

Commissioning procedure applicable to the inverters:  M6A, M8A, M10A, M15A_220, M20A_220, M30A_230

To commission the applicable inverters you will need:

  • MyDeltaSolar APP installed on your iOS or Android smartphone
  • The DC1 data collector installed to your router
  • A properly installed applicable Delta Wi-Fi enabled solar inverter

1. First download and install the APP

2. Power on the inverter 

3. Load factory setting (applies for M6A/M8A/M10A models)

For the M6A / M8A / M10A the Wi-Fi module can be reset in the "Install Settings" display menu.

Factory setting SSID password: DELTASOL

4. Install the DC1 Data Collector

There are three ways to supply the DC1 with voltage.

  1. Supply voltage through an external power supply 9-25V / 5W

  2. Standard 5V / 5W micro USB power supply

  3. We recommend to use the power supply of Delta Inverters.

Each inverter has a 12V / 0.5A power supply on the communication board, which you can use for the DC1

Connections

 

  • An external power supply can be connected to terminals 1 and 2 on the terminal block.
  • The RS485 bus is connected with its Data + and Data- to 3 and 4.
  • Please note: Data Plus on terminal 4 and Data Minus on terminal 3
  • Maximum of 32 bus subscribers can be processed via RS485 and a maximum of 9 subscribers with Wi-Fi.

 

Wiring RS485 Bus to DC1

To use the DC1, the Delta Protocol must be selected in the inverter

The DC1 has no termination resistor implemented. The first and last bus participant must always be terminated.

If the DC1 is the first bus device, 120 Ohm resistor must be clamped between terminals 3 and 4.

DC1 Reset Button

Factory Reset:

 

1. Press reset button for > 15 seconds.

The "System Ready" LED on the DC1 flashes every 2 seconds.

After approx. 10 seconds, the DC1 restarts.

Note: If no RESET is possible, Firmware update of the

DC1 must be performed. After that press the

reset button again.
