SatCon PowerGate PV View Information
Solar system monitoring via RS485 Modbus
Monitor your SatCon system locally or on the internet with "PV View"!
Visualizing and communicating the performance and environmental benefits of your PV system has never been easier than it is now with SatCon Power Systems’ PV View.
PV View is a web-enabled data monitoring system available as an integrated option with all SatCon PowerGate inverters. Connecting to the Internet via a local LAN or cellular modem, the system provides complete real-time performance data as well as long-term historical system data and graphs.
PV View also has a variety of optional environmental and weather station capabilities. This information is stored and processed on a remote web server and is available from anywhere on the web through the PV View web portal.
Simple Internet Monitoring
Access your system information from anywhere. Package includes 5-year data processing and web hosting.
Gateway and power supplies are pre-installed in Power Gate inverters. There is no software to install. PV View connects via LAN or optional cell phone modem.
Improved System Performance
Determine quickly if your system is down or underperforming. You have the ability to optimize net metering by monitoring your system's performance remotely.
PV Zone sub-array monitoring . Revenue grade production and demand metering. Solar radiation, module and ambient
temperature monitoring. Wind speed and direction monitoring.
Standard Parameters Monitored
DC voltage and current and AC voltage, current and kW are displayed as both instantaneous values and daily,
weekly or monthly graphs. Cumulative kWhrs generated is available as daily, weekly, monthly and lifetime totals.
PV Zone® monitors the current of each PV sub-array circuit allowing detailed array performance monitoring. Underperforming
array zones can be isolated to amp blocks, simplifying field troubleshooting and providing early detection of array performance problems. PV Zone® requires the purchase of the PV sub-array combiner option and PV View™ monitoring.
• Revenue grade production and building demand meters
• Meteorological monitoring
• Cell phone modems and other communication options
