PPE count on Lufft weather sensors for PV Monitoring

Contributed by | Lufft

 

Pacific Power Engineers, Inc. (PPE) was formed by experienced engineers from different branches and offers a range of services e.g. in project management. Together with Lufft USA we provide photovoltaic monitoring solutions.

For us, the values integrity and transparency are core values, and we have found these attributes in Lufft USA Inc. and their products in working with them over the years.  The value, performance, and ease of setup and installation makes choosing their products for use on our projects a no-brainer.

PPE standardized on Lufft’s weather sensors because of their seamless integration with our remote intelligent gateway (RIG) and Human Machine Interface (HMI) implementations, and the transparency that comes with their open communication protocols.  A Lufft all-in-one weather station, with the addition of one or two sensors, meets all CAISO requirements for most solar installations; when Lufft’s equipment is used with PPE’sHMI for site monitoring and control, it allows our customers to view and trend site data in real-time, as well as archive all relevant data points for future analysis of component and system performance.
