Benning Solar Monitoring

Solar display for Benning inverters

With the Benning Solar Portal, owners of photovoltaic systems can monitor their power generation and system status. Solarfox displays can retrieve and visualise the data from the Benning Solar Portal.

For the use of a Solarfox® display to visualise the energy data, only an Internet connection is required on site. The system is therefore compatible with any photovoltaic system with Benning  inverters, only an Internet connection via LAN or WLAN is required. This has the advantage that you do not need any direct cabling between the Benning Monitoring and the Solarfox display. This gives you maximum flexibility to select any location for the solar display installation.

The ideal combination: Benning inverter and Solarfox solar display

Communication between Benning portal and Solarfox display

  1. The photovoltaic system generates direct current.
  2. The Benning inverter converts solar energy into alternating current.
  3. The yielded data is transferred directly from the Benning inverters  to the Benning monitoring portal on the Internet.
  4. After a Solarfox online account has been created, the Solarfox® web server accesses the data in the Benning Monitoring Portal and generates a slideshow that you can configure individually via web browser.
  5. The Solarfox® display accesses the data of the Solarfox web server via the Internet and displays the data in a slideshow as a visually appealing way. To do this, the display only needs to retrieve data via the Internet through port 80.

Benning solar monitoring and combination with other systems

The Solarfox system is not only compatible with Benning, but also with numerous other solar monitoring systems and can visualise several systems from different manufacturers.
