Fronius STATE codes beginning with 1xx

Fronius STATE codes beginning with 1 usually only occur momentarily and are caused by the power from the street (the grid) being outside the inverters operating parameters. The Fronius inverter reacts by disconnecting from the grid and attempts to switch on again after the specified mains monitoring period, as long as no further errors occur during this period. The STATE code is displayed whilst the grid is being checked.

Code
Description
Behaviour
Remedy
STATE 102 AC voltage too high Following careful testing and when the grid conditions are within the permissible range again, the inverter will resume feeding energy into the grid. Check grid connections: If this STATE code keeps recurring contact your solar power system installer.
STATE 103 AC voltage too low
STATE 105 AC frequency too high
STATE 106 AC frequency too low
STATE 107 AC grid outside the permissible limits
