While the Fronius Symo Hybrids offer a comparable solution in terms of size range, SMA’s more streamlined installation process makes it a more feasible solution for residential installs in most cases. Both SMA and Fronius offer 10 year limited product warranties across their various inverter lines.
Why does the Fronius require RS485 instead of SMA?
I think because the Fronius comes with the Smart Meter and the SMA does not. So an RS485 line needs to be run to the power meter box. Well if you choose SMA, an ethernet cable has to be run from the inverter to your modem. And that only monitors Solar.
