Please use our instructions for installers this will help you to plan the installation beforehand.

What is the average power consumption for the Solarfox?

The Solarfox control computer works with 1-5W power  depending on the size, the display requires about 1W in standby mode and for example, up to 35-50   Watt as with a 32" when in operation. You will find a complete overview of the consumption values of all models in our Product Overview and the relevant product details of Solarfox SF-300 series or Solarfox SF-600 series.

Electricity costs less than 1,00 EUR per month

At an average use of 8 hours per day on 225 working days and electricity costs by 0, 25 €/kWh, annual electricity for a Solarfox SF-300 24" (61cm) is estimated to approx. 11,00 EUR

Is the equipment including accessories or cables ?

Yes, the displays are all delivered with a tilt-able wall mount. Each unit comes with a 2m network cable and power cables. The wall distance of the display is approx. 6cm. Sockets can be positioned behind the display so that they are not visible from the front. However, the depth of the power supplies still needs to be considered. For further information, please refer to the Solarfox data sheet.

What speed does the Internet connection require?

Since Solarfox incorporates smart caching a cellular connection (UMTS / GPRS) is also possible . However, the charging process is considerably faster  when a powerful Internet connection is used. During the presentation, Solarfox automatically updates in the background at set intervals so that a slow internet connection will not be aproblem

Can one separately obtain the Solarfox software?

Solarfox attaches great importance to stable and reliable systems. We develop our software in close collaboration with a tested hardware configuration,making sure that  that operators and installers get a safe and low-maintenance system. Therefore, we support no stand-alone systems or existing hardware. This is the reason why the Solarfox software can't be purchased separately. Solarfox only sells complete systems and guarantees simultaneous high reliability.

Please note:

1) All components of the SOLARFOX® Display System are very closely matched. In doing so, we set great value upon low-maintenance and stable operation,
ease of use, quick and easy installation and safety. At the same time, we would like to offer our customers competent support and service. Without
this close coordination of the individual components, we could not belie your expectations.

2) The market has a very wide range of monitors, displays and TVs. The specifications of these devices differ in some cases significantly, this affects the configuration but also the technical characteristics. There are also firmware and software updates. Small deviations can already be a source of malfunction or error here. In addition, almost all of these manufacturers now come from Asia and usually roll out updates unannounced or do not provide updates or drivers at all. This results in either a security problem or a compatibility problem. This is especially true for Smart TVs, which are designed for the private consumer and not for commercial use.

3) We recommend companies in the photovoltaic industry and in particular installers, whose main focus is the installation of PV systems, a fundamental decision in this case. If your claim is to provide high quality craftsmanship and to offer your customers a high level of service, you should focus on your core competency. You provide a work service to the customer and owe a permanently functional system; at the same time your customer should
experience a positive overall impression. This claim cannot be combined with a craft solution using e.g. upgrading existing or own monitors and/or creating
an isolated solution. The lifespan of such constructs is usually rather short-lived, and malfunctions and service operations are inevitable. It often follows discussions with customers about costs or goodwill. It may be true that the customer saved a few Euros in the purchase, but the installer and end customer are both the ‚victim‘ in the end. Often, the installer is left with the costs, because he owes a functional work performance, while the customer remembers the craft solution as a bad impression. In many cases, the end customer also received no help at all, if the knowledge is lost due to normal employee turnover at the installing company.

I already have a TV, can I use it?

Conventional LCD or LED TVs are usually designed for a daily operating time of 3-5 hours by the manufacturer (Phillips, Samsung, LG, etc.). If the devices are used in continuous operation (> 5 hours), this leads in the medium term to a reduced playback performance on most models. The picture becomes cloudy or gets a white veil. In these cases, a complaint is usually unsuccessful, as manufacturers reject warranty claims.

Solarfox® therefore uses special monitors that are designed for continuous operation and can be operated up to 24 hours a day. A daily timer can turn the unit on and off at a specific time. In addition, the devices have an IPS panel, which allows improved brightness from different viewing angles.

The brand Solarfox® combines a high standard of quality and performance. Therefore, we cannot support existing systems, as this usually only provides insufficient support, so Solarfox® only offers complete systems that work with Plug & Play. For them we offer the best possible operational safety

Security and Garantees
