MORNINGSTAR INTRODUCES WEB VIEW® REMOTE MONITORING

Morningstar Corporation is pleased to announce off-grid remote monitoring over the internet for its TriStar solar charge controller.

Morningstar's TriStar Web View remote monitoring is an advanced hardware and software package that provides live data from an off-grid photovoltaic (PV) system to a website over the internet. By avoiding expensive site visits, the TriStar Web View will reduce the life cycle costs of off-grid PV systems.


The TriStar Web View designed in conjunction with Fat Spaniel Technologies, communicates PV system status from the TriStar controller over a broadband or wireless internet connection to a website, managing remote PV systems from any web browser. All of the hardware and software is included to enable a simple "plug and play" installation.

The display shows numerous system data numerically and as graphic displays. Battery level and charging, PV output, temperature and diagnostics on both a present and cumulative basis are provided. TriStar Web View supports both hard-wired internet connections as well as cellular data services through an optional GSM modem.

Morningstar is the world's leading supplier of solar charge controllers whose quality products provide higher reliability and longer battery life. The firm's controllers are sold through a network of over 150 authorized solar distributors worldwide.
