Sensors are used to detect and measure environmental conditions within and around your system.
Data can be taken for irradiance (solar energy), ambient air temperature, module or collector temperature, wind speed, water store temperature, etc.
Crunch the data from your system's sensors and output recorders using a system monitoring and control package.
Remote system monitoring interprets key performance elements and delivers real time information about your system via your computer's web connection.
Datalogging is also a great educational tool for schools as it can be used to graphically display the relationship between weather conditions, energy generation and energy consumption.
Dataloggers record the information from your system sensors at regular time intervals.
Data collected for a period of time can be checked against the performance of your system for the same period to ensure it is working at optimum output.
