Solar-Log

Solar-Log

Solar-Log is a cost-effective, monitoring system that supports over 40 inverter brands for monitoring any size installation, from residential to large-scale commercial systems. The award-winning Solar-Log "Easy Installation" function makes this one of the fastest and easiest monitoring systems to install. Solar-Log units connect to a local area network or Internet router throu Ethernet or WiFi. They have an RS-422/RS-485 input for wired connection to the inverter(s) of the system being monitored. BT models can connect wirelessly to Bluetooth-equipped inverters, such as the SMA SunnyBoy HFUS series.


Features and Configurations

The Solar-Log200 supports a single inverter and is configured via built-in web server. The easy installation mode coupled with Solar-Log WEB Commercial edition allows you to connect the logger, check the status lights, then finish configuration remotely over the internet.




The Solar-Log500 supports up to 10 inverters (all inverters must be the same brand) and is monitored via an integrated text display or the built-in web server used for configuration. It also features an S0 Pulse in/out for connecting building load meters and displays.

The Solar-Log1000 supports up to 100 inverters (up to 2 different brands) and features a 3.5" x 2" touch screen display that allows configuration without a computer and displays yields in a graphical output. It also features an additional RS-485 port along with USB, relay and alarm ports, and optional integrated GPRS.


Accessories

In addition to basic connection cables, a variety of accessories are available to expand the functionality of the Solar-Log system. All three Solar-Log models work with the weather station and revenue grade meter. Integrated GPRS is available with the Solar-Log 1000 only.




Inverter compatibility

The Solar-Log system analyzes inverter data including status and error codes to provide essentially the same data available from inverter-specific monitoring accessories. However, since Solar-Log works with more than 40 inverter brands, including SMA, Fronius, PVPowered, KACO and PowerOne, it can by used to unify your monitoring platform without restricting your designers to a single inverter brand. Because it relies on inverter data, a separate current transformer (CT) is required for revenue-grade metering. Contact AEE's Technical Support Team for details.
