 This is a very easy setup. The Fronius Setup Microgrid has been developed in close cooperation with Victron. During commissioning,​ set the PV Inverter to Setup MG50 (or Setup MG60 for 60 Hz systems). Everything is then pre-configured. The Setup MG settings match the default Victron Assistant settings. This is a very easy setup. The Fronius Setup Microgrid has been developed in close cooperation with Victron.

-For new systems the Symo and Eco inverters are recommended for 3~ applications. The Primo inverters are recommended for 1~ applications. Please note that all these inverters are transformerless and therefore PV-Modules that require pole-grounding (on the Plus or Minus pole) cannot be connected.+For new systems the Fronius ​Symo and Fronius ​Eco inverters are recommended for 3~ applications.

 +**Compatible UL inverters** (for "US type AC grid") are: 
 +  * Fronius Primo UL (1~, 3.8 kW up to 15 kW) -> Software //​fro27470.upd//​ or higher (see FAQ Q5!) 
 +  * Fronius Symo 10-24 480V (3~, 10 kW up to 24 kW) -> Software //​fro27140.upd//​ or higher (see FAQ Q5!)

 +For the UL inverters, some more Microgrid Setups are available (e.g. for connection with Neutral conductor or without). Also the UL inverters can be used in 60Hz as well as in 50Hz applications. More information can be found in the user manuals.

-No, when using a Fronius ​PV Inverter ​in a Victron system ​it is not possible to use the Fronius Smart Meter.+That depends on the type of system and software configuration. 
 + 
 +Fronius ​Smart Meter can be used in these two situations:​ 
 + 
 +  - when used only for reporting to Solarweb 
 +  - when used for limiting export, ​in a system where the Victron system is not configured as an ESS system. 
 + 
 +The Fronius Smart-Meter can not be used for the Fronius built-in export limiting feature when part of a Victron ESS system. Instead, use the Victron ESS Fronius Zero-feed in feature, see chapter 4.3.11, Fronius Zero Feed-in, in the [[ess:​design-installation-manual|ESS manual]].
  
-Use any of the [[energy-meters:​start|Victron supplied Energy Meters]] instead.
