The components of the modular data logger are supplied from industrial automation hardware specialist, Phoenix Contact. Smartblue then integrates the standard software protocol which fits current industry requirements and can easily adapt to any changes brought in the future - for example: smart grid control. The data logger hardware can be extended any time with software and hardware interfaces. And the spare parts for the components are available long term. This fulfills the need for the long life cycle of PV systems.

"We are committed to provide long term solutions that meet the needs of our customers and the photovoltaic industry. The Smartblue data logger provides standard hardware and software at industrial grade with reliability and long term availability", says Günter Seel - CEO & founder of smartblue AG.

The Smartblue data logger is suitable for both medium and large scale PV systems. It continuously collects data from sources like inverters; string connection boxes, weather sensors or energy meters and provides access to the exact current status of the entire PV system. Users can easily access this information through the Smartblue monitoring console.
The data logger is now available and the first orders have been delivered to customers in Germany, Italy and Switzerland. It will be presented at the Intersolar Europe 2015, where Smartblue will also highlight its new sales and service partners and the functions and features of its new Smart Control Center.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
