I thought you needed to replace it with an Island to do that ?

You will need to apply to SMA for a Grid Guard Code, they are unique to each installer and not the sort of thing that is shared

simply get your spark to apply for one via service@SMA-Australia.com.au

I have one but its given on a site specific basis and not for public distribution.
Gives you access to heaps of other parameters which if you don't know what you're doing can make it not work at all or breach plenty of AS4777 standards / requirements.
8E + 8W + 8Nth Garage CMS2000-1 with ~4500W in 3 strings of 8.
Fronius Galvo 3.0 inverter with ~6.6kW panels
12x ZNShine + 12x 180W Solarfuns both NW + ZNShine 12x190 facing SE.
Edwards Solar Hot water


Luck Favours the well prepared.

Hi mate, when you got the grid guard code, what parameters did you change and to what in order to configure your inverter to off grid. I have an SB4000TL-20 which I also want to work in an off grid installation. I have since applied for the code from SMA.
