Schneider Electric launches Conext Insight

A remote monitoring and asset management platform for distributed PV plants

Burnaby, Canada, January 15, 2015 — Schneider Electric Solar Business, a global leader in solutions for the solar power conversion chain, is pleased to announce the launch of Conext™ Insight, a remote monitoring and asset management platform for distributed PV plants.


Smart decision making to maximise ROI of PV assets

The Conext Insight web portal gives you detailed insight into the performance of your distributed PV plants from any Internet connected device—anytime, anywhere. You now have the convenience and ease to remotely monitor all your distributed PV plants from one central platform.

"We are proud to announce the launch of the Conext Insight platform," says Mr. Manish Kumar, VP, Commercial & Residential LOB & Strategy, of Schneider Electric Solar Business. "The launch of Conext Insight reinforces our commitment to bring more and more differentiated and simple to use offers to our customers, to help them maximize the returns on their PV investments."

Conext Insight provides smart insight to installers by facilitating remote diagnostics of PV plant issues, which can minimize their truck rolls in response to service calls. Installers can leverage Conext Insight to remain connected with their customers and offer value-added services. At the same time, Conext Insight also provides PV plant owners with powerful insight. The web portal gives them access to their plant's performance data to ensure the desired ROI is realized.

"As an early adopter of the Conext Insight portal, I am pleased with the easy-to-use interface and the value brought by the portal to facilitate remote portfolio management through a single login access. Now I can better serve my customers and proactively suggest actions for better system performance," says Ayi Rahmat, President Director, PT Indogreen Technology and Management, based in Indonesia.

Conext Insight is now available for remote monitoring of your ComBox enabled hybrid PV plants. The next version of Conext Insight will cover remote monitoring of decentralized PV plants using Schneider Electric's Conext string inverters in April 2015.
