SPI 15 - Continental Control Systems Introduces a Compact Meter Module - an OEM Revenue-Grade "Energy Meter on a Board"

This year at Solar Power International, Anaheim, California - Continental Control Systems will introduce their new compact OEM revenue-grade PV Meter Module. “Meter on a Board” features an innovative compact single board design (measuring 2.75” x 2.5”) that can accommodate either a single or three phase service with either board-mounted or externally mounted CT’s.

Continental Control Systems announced today that it will introduce their new compact OEM revenue-grade PV Meter Module. "Meter on a Board" features an innovative compact single board design (measuring 2.75" x 2.5") that can accommodate either a single or three phase service with either board-mounted or externally mounted CT's.

Continuing the quality and value that Continental Control Systems is known for, the module has the full functionality of a traditional meter in a smaller package without the AC power supply.

The meter's compact design significantly reduces the time for factory integration into an inverter or gateway, and is a fraction of the cost of standard meters, which may very well be disruptive to all meters used in PV installations.

With many options available, such as conformal coating, C12.20 certification, enclosure options, board mounted CT's, DIN rail and environmental requirements, the "Meter on a Board can be designed as a proprietary revenue-grade PV meter module for OEM manufacturers.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
