Solar-Log WEB Enerest 4.0 – high performance in error analysis

The modularly designed hardware and new online portal, Solar-Log WEB Enerest™ 4.0 by Solare Datensysteme GmbH, provide a powerful overall package. Numerous features are available, including machine learning-based detection of plant errors. These features save the plant operator time and money by simplifying the monitoring process and leading to prompt issue resolution.

"The new Solar-Log Base and Solar-Log WEB Enerest™ 4.0 technology combines the long-lasting expertise of a market leader with the visions of a market expert. When developing the new Solar-Log, we focused on the end-user. The aim was to develop a product that would open up new ways of managing PV energy. The Solar-Log Base and Solar-Log WEB Enerest 4.0 not only optimise the operational procedures and facilitate quicker error diagnosis, they also offer functions suited to individual requirements," Frank Schlichting, CEO of Solare Datensysteme GmbH, explains.

Analysis with a single click

The Solar-Log energy management system covers all market segments and is a core element for smart energy, feed-in management and PV monitoring. The Solar-Log Base combines proven features with new functionality and ensures effective energy management. The new series consists of the Solar-Log Base 15, Solar-Log Base 100 and Solar-Log Base 2000 models that can be expanded with the Mod I/O and Mod 485 modules, according to the particular requirements. The hardware includes VPN functionality that saves time and money when using direct marketing. Soon, especially for large PV plants, it will be possible to use Solar-Log Base to measure and analyse the signal quality of the inverter communication (RS485). No more long cables and costly oscilloscope troubleshooting.

The new Enerest 4.0 provides the online component for the hardware. The new features of the online portal include an improved Dashboard as well as enhanced monitoring, Task List, Administration and Billing sections. All of the relevant information will be displayed on one page for quicker analysis and processing. This eliminates the tedious search for important information. Errors are detected immediately and an analysis can be performed with a single click. In addition, the new portal has a sophisticated design. For more information, please visit the Solar-Log website.
