Today AlsoEnergy announces a major change to our product catalog. Introducing the PowerLogger 1000, the new standard gateway device in the AlsoEnergy Commercial PV Monitoring Solution. This innovative datalogger introduces a range of practical and time-saving benefits relative to other gateway devices in the PV marketplace.
The PowerLogger 1000 adds a rugged interactive touch screen LCD display. This innovation allows workers to commission, bus test, and troubleshoot without the need to interface with a laptop computer or mobile device. This feature, along with an automated configuration process, will enable field workers to cut commissioning and maintenance time in half. The simple ability to get immediate status feedback from the LCD display can be a tremendous time saver. And many device diagnostics and configurations can be executed remotely with the AlsoEnergy Commercial Monitoring Solution, eliminating the need for some field visits altogether.
The PowerLogger 1000 comes with practical upgrades as well. This device more than doubles the processing speed of the previous standard gateway from AlsoEnergy, enabling new applications. The PowerLogger 1000 has a wider operational temperature range than previous gateway models, and lower power consumption enables a longer UPS backup window.
“Our team has already deployed the PowerLogger 1000 in the field” says Dennis W. Odden, President of Bay4 Energy Services. “Our field engineers save time with the convenience of the touch screen display and the simple process for network configuration and testing. This device is a big step forward for site hardware solutions.”
“We continue to invest in engineering to stay on the cutting edge of hardware technology” says AlsoEnergy CEO Robert Schaefer. “The PowerLogger 1000 is our latest effort to simplify the installation and maintenance of commercial PV monitoring systems for our clients.”
The PowerLogger 1000 records data in real time from various field devices including weather stations, inverters, trackers, and meters. Data is retained in the PowerLogger in the event of a network interruption and forwarded to AlsoEnergy data servers when the connection is re-established. As always, AlsoEnergy hardware is extensively tested, rated to UL standards, and comes with a standard 5-year warranty.
