The Solar800 is a turn-key, solar-measurement data-acquisition system specifically designed for solar-resource assessment. The Solar800 provides the on-site data essential for a thorough understanding of a project site’s solar resources and variability. The system is designed with fast-to-field features that simplify and expedite installation: no system coding required, quick-deploy installation components and guide, and simple-to-configure software. Data retrieval is easy and flexible. Options include: FTP, email, Modbus, DNP 3, and LoggerNet capability.Read More
The Solar800 takes 1-second measurements and stores data at user-defined intervals for global horizontal irradiance, plane of array (POA) irradiance, wind speed, wind direction, precipitation, temperature, relative humidity (optional), and barometric pressure (optional).
The Solar800 is designed for continuous outdoor use, with power supply options ensuring continuous operation in most locations. The system is available with multiple communications options, giving maximum flexibility in data collection and monitoring methods.
No coding is required to set up and operate a Solar800. To facilitate easy setup and turn-key operation, the Solar800 comes with configuration software.
