The System Monitor is a “lite” version of the Plant Manager offering a basic set of features idea for small and medium commercial applications. The included Data Logger Commercial can monitor and provide data management for up to ten ABB string inverters and one weather station.
VSN800 Weather Station
The Weather Station system automatically monitors site meteorological conditions and photovoltaic panel temperature in real-time, transmitting sensor measurements to the Plant Portfolio Manager data center. Site irradiance and temperature data are needed to calculate expected performance and the ratio of actual performance to expected performance.
