Fronius solar inverter replacement-Twycross

As a Fronius Service Partner this enquiry originated from the Fronius help desk.  We were informed that the Fronius inverter had fault code 417 showing which indicates a DC card failure. The customer was offered a replacement DC card with a 1 year warranty or a replacement Fronius Galvo 1.5 inverter with a full 5 years’ manufacturers warranty.  In this case the customer decided it would be prudent to opt for the latest technology and have a new solar inverter.

This was also rectified as part of the inverter replacement/relocation work. Fronius solar inverter replacement and repair
