PowerLine Package

The PowerLine Package is a problem-free alternative for transmitting data between the Solar-Log™ and the PC or the router without having to run extra cable when WiFi reception is poor or an Ethernet connection is problematic. Thanks to the integrated socket, a power connection is not wasted – the Solar-Log™, power strips or other devices can be connected directly to the adapter.  An integrated mains filter optimizes the transmission capacity even more. In public areas, a Kensington lock provides for efficient anti-theft protection.

WiFi Kits

Wireless Kit TP-Link

The WiFi Kit allows the Solar-Log™ to connect to the Internet via an existing WiFi infrastructure. Its flexible use makes an optimum placement possible, independent of the location of the Solar-Log™. The Kit provides speeds up to 750 MBit/s and communications with the new WLAN AC standard.

Wireless Kit Netgear

The universal WiFi range extender from  NETGEAR® improves the coverage of every WiFi router or gateway. The direct connection to the wall power socket and additional socket allow for easy installation. The dynamic LED display helps locate the best position for optimal WiFi coverage.

Connecting inverters wirelessly

Solar-Log™ RS 485 Wireless Package

The Solar-Log™ RS485 Wireless Package makes it possible to connect to inverters even in places where cable connections are difficult. Radio modules are always deployed in pairs. When used in conjunction with the external and directional radio antenna, connections can be made at larger distances.  The test function helps you to find the optimal mounting location.  When placing an order, the name of the inverter manufacturer is required in order to pre-configure the Wireless Packages.

Communication between SMA inverter and Solar-Log™

Special PiggyBack (RS485)

The special PiggyBack (RS485) is an inexpensive alternative to the standard SMA PiggyBack (RS485). It can only be used with the Solar-Log™ and requires 4-pin wiring. The device is supplied with power from the Solar-Log™ unit and therefore needs to have the proper connecting cable with a sufficient wire diameter and length. It is suitable for use with all SMA inverters, unless a data module, Quick module or Speedwire* is being used.For more information, see the inverter’s manual. The interface card is to be installed by qualified personnel only. Solare Datensysteme GmbH is not liable for damage arising from connecting the PiggyBack to the inverter.

*In many countries, the designation ""Speedwire"" is a registered trademark of SMA Solar Technology AG.
