Solar PV Inverters from KACO new energy automatically save the following operating data on the web server:
- AC power, voltages, currents
- Internal temperature
Tracking current data and comparing it with historical information provides insights about the condition of the solar power plant.
Via a LAN cable, the data can be securely accessed at any time from the computer at home. In addition, PV specialists can make settings on the inverter via the web server – either during commissioning or later conveniently via remote access without an appointment on site.
If the decision is made against comprehensive system monitoring, the integrated web server offers a lean, effective alternative. It is available in all solar PV inverters ex works and at no extra charge – and saves the costs for the external data logger that would otherwise be necessary.
Free, remote monitoring
When evaluating data on a screen, it can be tiresome to stare at blank numbers. Monitoring portals can help here: The data is prepared in a clear and vivid manner. The web server in our inverters has an open interface for smooth connection to such portals.
KACO new energy's own portal, blueplanet web, is available free of charge in the public version for PV systems up to an installed capacity of 100 kilowatts – and also comes as a free app for mobile devices.
Good to know
- Web server function not switched on by default
- Particularly suitable for PV systems <100 kW with few inverters
- blueplanet web profi Portal as recommendation for larger installations
- Please observe the Application Note "Remote access to the inverter via web user interface"
