After years of thinking about it, I finally decided to take the plunge. I’ve purchased nearly all of my equipment, which consists of 24 Jinko 255 panels and SMA SB-240 micros, and plan to build an elevated, stand-alone structure from pressure treated lumber. I haven’t found much of any discussion about these micros in particular on here, so was interested to hear from others who may have experience with them. It appears that they were never very popular, and now with DC optimizers are falling to the wayside. I’m completely fine with that, as I was able to purchase all 24+cabling+the required SMA multigate for ~$1,300. I’ll be squeezing the “pergola” in a somewhat wooded area in my backyard, so I may experience partial shading at times, especially during low sun angles.

The question I have at the moment, is exactly how I’ll need to connect the multigate for network connectivity? I am using the MG-X2E model, which uses 2 multigates and does not come with a pre-installed network hub. I have already installed an extra 3/4” conduit out to where I’ll be installing the system, but haven’t looked into exactly what I’ll need to connect it (single or double Cat5) or if there is some type of wireless add-on device that would be easier than pulling and wiring it up? I only know enough about IT stuff to be a little dangerous, so any advice would be appreciated.

I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
