Solar-Log & GE Meters are Certified to UL Standards

"At Solar-Log we are committed to maintaining high quality and standards of safety"

BETHEL, Conn., Sept. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The new Solar-Log & GE Meters by Solar Data Systems, Inc. are cTUVus approved. The product family combines the market leading Solar-Log photovoltaic monitoring technology with General Electric's popular residential I-210+ utility meter to create the Solar-Log 350, 360, and 370.

The Solar-Log & GE Meters comply with UL 61010-1 and CAN/CSA C22.2 No. 61010-1, in accordance with the strict safety requirements for electrical equipment. They are certified revenue grade, specifically designed for residential PV plants, and engineered for simple installation.

"At Solar-Log we are committed to maintaining high quality and standards of safety," says Anton Kaeslin, President of Solar Data Systems, Inc., "Obtaining this certification for the Solar-Log & GE Meters is an assurance of that commitment. The Solar-Log & GE Meter is one of the first socket based PV monitoring products to comply with UL and CAN/CSA safety certifications."

The Solar-Log & GE Meters are plug-and-play devices which do not require onsite configuration, allowing portal view of the PV plant performance and revenue grade reporting. The Solar-Log 360 adds site power consumption measured by current transformers placed around the utility feed connections, and allows plant owners to verify utility bills in addition to PV plant monitoring and reporting. The Solar-Log 370 offers numerous I/O ports like Ethernet and 2x RS485 that provide access to inverters, weather stations, or additional power management current transformers. Together, these forward-looking products offer an innovative and proven solution for integrated PV metering and monitoring, including inverter direct monitoring, power and energy management, as well as battery storage monitoring. All Solar-Log & GE Meters come with a 5 year warranty, cellular data plan, and the Solar-Log WEB portal.

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

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.
