SPI 2015 - New Solar-Log 370 & GE Meter

Enhanced Residential PV Metering with Power Management

BETHEL, Conn., Aug. 19, 2015 -- Solid demand for the Solar-Log 350 has fueled the growth of the extended product family which will include the Solar-Log 360 & 370 Meters, manufactured entirely in the U.S.


The Solar-Log 350 was officially launched at Solar Power International in Las Vegas last October and since then strong market demand has confirmed the need for residential PV monitoring integrated in revenue grade meters. The new Solar-Log 360 is now available and the Solar-Log 370 will be available this September.

Solar-Log 370

The latest Solar-Log & GE Meter will offer numerous connection options making it the most versatile version of the Solar-Log & GE Meter product family for residential PV plants.

Inverter Direct Monitoring, Consumption Monitoring, and Weather Stations

The Solar-Log 370 has three external ports (1xLAN, 1xRS485, 1xRS485/422), providing a flexible way to connect to PV equipment on-site. It supports inverter direct monitoring to all major brands and connects to weather stations and additional meters for monitoring house consumption.

Power Management

The Solar-Log 370 supports power management functions such as zero-feed-in, feed-in capping, or remote disconnect. Future requirements will be automatically available via remote updates.

LAN and Cellular Connectivity

The LAN connection increases the number of times data is transferred per day, giving near real-time visualization of plant data for system owners and installers. In addition, the integrated cellular modem with 5-year data plan provides a backup option for data transfer.

5 years all-inclusive

All Solar-Log & GE Meters (350/360/370) come with a 5 year warranty, 5 years of cellular data and 5 years of online Solar-Log WEB service.

Distributors, installers, plant owners, and solar leasing companies across the nation have purchased the Solar-Log & GE Meters. The entire product family including the Solar-Log 350, 360, and 370 will be on display September 15th-17th at Solar Power International in Anaheim, CA, Booth 543.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
