14 Jun skytron energy launches updated Supervision Platform PVGuard
Germany’s PV monitoring company, skytron energy announced the launch of version 2.3 of its PVGuard Supervision Platform.
The updated version will be presented at Intersolar 2016 and features a new integrated control function which authorises operations to directly connect to a plant through a customized dashboard, activating and deactivating individual inverters, sections or the whole plant.
The direct connection to the PV plant permits selected data to be shown live on the dashboard and makes the effects of switching operations visible in real-time.
PVGuard 2.3 also allows operators to store high-resolution data from metering devices and the power plant controller for up to six months in a database, allowing long-term, in-depth analysis of system performance.
“The PVGuard Supervision Platform is the heart of our monitoring technology,” said Hendrick Hoffmann, skytron’s director software, service and O&M. “The new 2.3 version makes it easier for owners to handle the most varied data from the PV plant and simplifies recurring processes like sending reports and emails.”
