SolarMAN Solar PV Monitoring Device Or Embedded WiFi Kit (S-W02E/S-W02ES) is an embedded data logging module. With its “plug & play” function, the module is embedded in an inverter and can collect information of PV systems from the inverter.
SolarMAN Monitoring Portal:
With the integrated WiFi function, the module can connect to router and transmit data to the web server, enabling users to view collected data by logging in the online monitoring portal (www.solarmanpv.com/portal). In addition, users can also get access to the internal web server of the module via WiFi and directly obtain data from the module.
The new generation of WiFi module enables operation under AP and STA mode simultaneously, which means that users can directly get access to the internal Web Server via WiFi, and at the same time the module can connect to remote portal via WiFi, enabling users to monitor PV systems anytime and anywhere via Internet.
