    Installing our first 4000-TL on Monday and are just wondering if we have to do anything else other than change the 2 dials to G83/1 before we switch on??

    Thanks in advance

    SMA guidelines for 4000TL are DC strings and AC cable should be minimum 6mm. (although the panels will be in 4mm)

    Good luck getting 6mm flex for AC isolator to inverter LOL :pimp2:

    Did you pre-apply for the connection under G83 stage 2? The DNO would have written back with whatever stipulations they require to allow the connection - this may include changing a setting or two in the inverter.

    I wire inverter to adjacent isolator in 4mm, then 6mm from isolator to wherever. Can't see a foot of 4mm flex knackering up the volt drop that much :devilish: Are you sure they stipulate 6mm for DC? Never run anything other than 4mm on the DC side for sub-4kW domestics.

    Am i right int thinking that it has a G83-1 certificate so i can connect as per g83 and notify my DNO (SSE) within 28 days as usual?
    Thanks

    If you wire them in anything less than 6mm you void the warranty. 6mm T&E works fine.

    You won't void the warranty. "Not recommended" is not the same as "Do not use or warranty void"
