Solare Datensysteme GmbH will be presenting the new Solar-Log Base PV energy management system at Intersolar 2019. The next Solar-Log™ generation combines smart functionality with greater flexibility for more efficient control, management and monitoring of PV plants – professional energy management at its best.
The modularly designed hardware and new online portal,Solar-Log WEB Enerest™4.0,provide apowerful overall package.Numerous advanced featuresare available,including self-learning detection of plant errors.These features save the plant operator significant time andmoney by simplifyingthe monitoring process and leading to prompt issue resolution.
Our most powerful PV energy management system ever.
Solar-Log™, theenergy management systemof Solare DatensystemeGmbH,coversall market segmentsandis a core elementforsmart energy, feed-in management and PV monitoring.TheSolar-LogBasecombines proven features with new functionalityandensures effective energy management. The new series consists of the Solar-LogBase 15, Solar-LogBase 100 and Solar-LogBase 2000models that can be expanded with the “Mod I/O” and “Mod 485” modules,according to the particular requirements. The hardware
PressInformation -Intersolar Europe20192includes VPN functionality that saves time and money when using direct marketing.Soon, especially for large PV plants, it will be possible to measure and to analyze the signal quality of the inverter communication (RS485) with the Solar-LogBase. The horrorsof long cable lengths and costly oscilloscope troubleshooting will become a thing of the past.
The brand new Enerest 4.0 provides the online componentfor the hardware. The new features of the online portal includeanimproved Dashboard, as well as enhanced monitoring, TaskList, Administration and Billing sections. All of the relevant information will be displayed on one page for quicker analysis and processing. This eliminates the tedious search for important information. Errors are detectedimmediatelyand an analysiscan be performedin just one click. In addition, the new portalhasasophisticated design which makes working with the energy management system more fun.
High performance in error analysis
The newEnerest4.0 systematically implements customers’ requirements. It paves the wayfor intuitive operatingof PV monitoring and provides a specific compilation of all relevant information in real time.Thereasonbehindthis:the plant operator receivesall of the required data forcontext-based error analysis.This quickly and easily helps solvethe problem and ensuresthat the plant is operating smoothly.
Monitoring – specific compilationof all relevant information
Monitoring is the centerpiece of Enerest4.0. The focusison quick and easy error analysis.Intelligent data isaggregated so specific plant faults can be accurately analyzed.Tools for data collectioninclude component configuration, plant processes, daily values, current display of the Solar-Log™and a “heat map” of the component communication.
Task List –an easy way to complete tasks
Red, orange and green–these three categories ensure that pending tasks are simply and clearly structured for each team member. Red is for open tasks,yellow is for lower priority tasksor those tasks that are being worked on,and green is for completed tasks. Essential information is included in the task with the option to attach additional information. Thanks to the simple structure, error management will become a breeze.
Administration –simple, clear and well-structured
Rights and tasks can be individually assigned in the User and Plant Administration section. Auser withindividual rights can be assignedto every plant. Individual plants can be assigned to so-calledfleetsand then assignedto auser group. The settings and right assignments are possible for all segments. This includes users, user groups, plants, fleetsand rights.For example, when a userclicks on a plant, all of the properties are displayed. This allows detailed properties to be generated without losing the overview.
Modular design and licenses for more flexibility in all areas
Flexibility and customization are consistently maintainedthroughout the hardware. The Solar-LogBase 15 is designed for PV plants up to 15 kWp. The Solar-LogBase 100 provides the optimal functions for plants up to 100 kWp and the Solar-LogBase 2000 is for complex industrial plants up to 2 MW. Additional hardware modules complement the modular design. The Mod I/O and MOD 485 offer plant operators the greatest possible flexibility with the individual expansion of the interfaces. Examples for use of these expansionoptions includeconnecting additional inverters, integratingSmart Energy components and carryingout feed-in management.The Solar-Log Base is small, compact and ideal for DIN rail mounting in an electrical enclosure.
High flexibility with new licenses
Along with this high flexibility, there are new licensesthanks to the modular structure. They ensure that the Solar-LogBase series meetsthe plant operator’son-site maintenance needs. Additional Plant Size Licenses allow for the expansion of the monitored plant size.
Highest efficiency in every work process
The highest efficiency for every operating process.Solar–LogBase is installed onsite and can be configured remotely.After the hardware has been successfully installed, the Solar–Log™automatically detects which licenses are required to perform the desired functions.These respective licenses are activated free of charge for 30 days after the initial installation. This serviceimmediately provides plant operators with all of the necessary functions to implement energy management.Within 30 days after the initial installation, the licenses can be purchased from the Solar–Log™ OnlineShop. The licenses are automatically activated for the corresponding Solar–Log™ without the need for an additional onsite service call at the PV plant. The Solar–LogBasedisplays the exact licenses required as a QR codeor via the web interface. The individual QR code allows users toaccessall of the relevant information foradditional plant configurationfrom their smartphone. Alternatively,this information can also be sent by e–mail.
