ECpv Logger is a universal, easy to integrate, logger for PV and PV/gensets for on or off-grid plants
Looking for a user friendly multi functional logger for your site?
ECpv Logger offers a direct interface to any brand of inverter, power meter, genset controller and weather sensors.
The ECpv Logger is often used in applications that require:
- Logging to integrate with the onsite SCADA
- Logging of site data such as fuel and power consumption for analysis and sizing
- Logging in a running PV or PV/diesel application
- Logged data send to multiple FTP servers
Reading the power produced from the solar inverters is done via a communication line to a power meter or the solar inverters own measurements. The power flow in and out from the public utility is also measured via a power meter.
The ECpv Logger supports breaker feedback from digital inputs as well as relay outputs. This could e.g. be applied to get the positions of breakers out via the Modbus Slave to a SCADA system or to trip breakers in certain scenarios setup with EClogic
A single line example can be found here for an ECpv Logger application:
All set up and onsite monitoring are done using our easy to use ECweb software.
The site data is freely accessible to read out via Modbus from your ECpv Logger. The ECpv Logger Modbus data will always be uniform for every site, no matter which brand and model of solar inverter and power meters you are using in the application.
When the ECpv Logger is connected to the internet, it can produce consumption and production reports with values in terms of kilowatts, penetration and performance ratio - but also report on financial performances.
In addition to live monitoring via ECweb and sharing live data via Modbus. The ECpv Logger also logs plant data on SD card or USB - enabling a lifetime of logging directly in the unit, which you can utilize for your own analysis. Moreover, all data the ECpv Logger reads - it can export to our ECcloud, FTP or MySQL databases, you can read much more about data acquisition and monitoring on our monitoring page.
