Quick Manual FREDDY Balcony Solar Set
Congratulations on the FREDDY balcony set! With FREDDY you generate your own electricity with sunlight in a few moments. These instructions make it easier to prepare, hang up and plug in FREDDY.
This video summarizes how to unpack, hang and plug in FREDDY.
Look at your specific situation at hand and ask yourself the following questions:
- Where will FREDDY hang?
- Where is the socket for feed in?
- Where can you put the inverter?
- How will the cables go from FREDDY to the inverter and further to the socket?

Working on balconies can be dangerous. If something falls down, people can die. When hanging FREDDY , nothing must fall off from the balcony. FREDDY must be hung up safely for many years.
Every balcony is different, so there are many ways to hang FREDDY safely. Select suitable measures on site. Here are a few examples for even more safety.
Connect FREDDY to the inverter
Connect FREDDY with their MC4 connectors to the inverter.
Unplugging MC4 connectors
MC4 connectors are waterproof. Once put together, they are difficult to open. Use the MC4 tool to quickly open MC4 connectors.
Commect the inverter to the home network
Use the included connector cables to plug the inverter into the socket. The cable snaps nto the inverter and locks itself. Twist the connector into an open position to unplug.
As soon as enough sunlight hits FREDDY , the inverter starts feeding into the home network. The green LED lamp on the inverter starts to flash. The more power is fed into the socket, the faster the inverter flashes.
Visualize the power flow
An optionally available power meter can be used to measure how much electricity is fed into the socket.
