Fronius is an Austrian-made inverter with proven reliability and safety in Australia
Fronius inverters have a proven track record
Fronius is an Austrian-made inverter with proven reliability and safety in Australia’s hot conditions due to its focus on airflow and fans for cooling.
Fronius themselves is a family-owned business that started in welding equipment. Ask any welder about Fronius, and chances are they know the brand, and as an inverter works very similar to a welder, it was a logical product to add to their business.
Fronius is one of the most popular brands in Australia, but it doesn’t dominate the picture so much in other parts of the world.
While they are ranked number 2 in Australia, Fronius has had supply issues and glitches with their software, things we haven’t seen with Sungrow. They are, however, rock-solid inverters.
Fronius Gen24 - innovative hybrid design holds promise
The new batch of Fronius hybrid-inverters has the heat sink on the front with a fan right in the middle, meaning the heat sink itself will shade the components while keeping the weather out.
More importantly, being a hybrid inverter, when integrated with storage, will give homes 24 hours of power, hence the name.
We look forward to seeing this design make its way through the Primo and Symo range that can AC couple to a Tesla battery.
Fronius System Benefits
A cooler inverter should last longer
With a giant heat sink, an active fan, and a larger cavity, the inverter, in theory, should operate at cooler temperatures for most of the year.
Our only concern is blowing 46-degree hot air into the inverter in the middle of an Australian summer. When it gets too hot here locally, the fans shut down, making it no different from a Sungrow who has a better-integrated all-in-one heat sink for this exact reason.
Fronius Solar.Web v Sungrow iSolarCloud
When it came to system monitoring, Fronius was at the forefront and certainly miles ahead of ABB or any other inverter manufacturer.
Sungrow’s update and a complete refresh of iSolarCloud last year have put it on par with Tesla’s App for information, reliability, and usability
Great for both commercial and residential solar installations
