Plant Portfolio Manager
Plant Portfolio Manager is the next generation of PV plant monitoring and management. This is a cloud-cloud based solution, available through a web browser user interface to your PV plant data, which provides highly interactive, real-time access to key performance and operations metrics to help plant management optimize decisions and accelerate the alignment with business goals. Plant Portfolio Manager has many dashboard views that allow fleet wide management of performance and assets through reports, diagnostics, analytics, or event alert and management.
VSN300 Wifi Logger Card
The VSN300 Wifi Logger Card is a new, advanced expansion board for ABB’s UNO and TRIO string inverters which provides residential and commercial users with an advanced and cost-effective solution for monitoring and controlling their photovoltaic system.
VSN700 Data Logger
ABB offers several Data Logger systems for residential, commercial and utility PV systems. This high-performance data management system logs it on site, and then acts as an internet gateway to send the data in near real time to be stored on ABB’s servers where it is accessible via a web browser.
VSN730 System Monitor
