FAQ

Can I add multiple data sources?

You can create a data source per display. You can add at any time but other data sources. For any display, a data source is first and therefore include a photovoltaic system. You can purchase additional data source packages inexpensively in our webshop.

When you assign multiple data sources to a slide, they are automatically assigned different colors so that each data source is recognizable. It is also possible to represent the total (cumulative)yields of data sources. For this you need (Configure Slide) on the wrench in a Click Slide. You enable the following boxes: "" returns with multiple data sources cumulate ""

Add new data source to a slideshow

If you want to add an additional data source (E.g. more PV system or electricity) to all slide views of a slideshow you can do this in the slideshow overview.

Step 1:                 Open the left sidebar, and under data sources, click ""Add""

Step 2:                 Register the data source.

Step 3:                 click on ""Home"" (House icon) at the top menu in the online management.

Step 4:                 Click on the specific data source and hold down the mouse button. Drag the data source on the particular slideshow and release the mouse button.

Step 5:                 Specify whether you want to replace or add the existing data source.

Step 6:                 click on the particular slideshow and you call on a slide with the preview function or click on the ""play"" button

Large solar displays by Solarfox are compartible with almost every photovoltaic system

Solarfox displays can be connected to almost every photovoltaic system. The data communication takes place via the internet and thus offers a very extensive location independence. In order to visualize the data of the photovoltaic system, Solarfox needs an external datalogger or an inverter with integrated datalogger. Datalogger and display must be connected to the internet via the following connection options. This has the advantage that you do not need direct cabling between the datalogger and the display. This allows you to select a location of the Solarfox display completely independent of location and very flexibly.

Cumulation of solar power yields and CO2 savings

As an option, system data can also be summarized or cumulated. Solarfox automatically aggregates the individual revenues of the assets into a total revenue and displays them in individual charts. With the accumulated representation different manufacturers and systems can be visualized. In this way it is e.g. possible to cumulate the yield data of three photovoltaic systems with one Solar-Log datalogger, two photovoltaic systems with one SMA Sunny Webbox and two photovoltaic systems with one Meteocontrol weblog.

Various applications

Common application options are city halls or company headquarters. Yields from various locations and buildings will be made available to a broad public at a central location. Due to the cumulative presentation, the CO2 savings and the total yield can be visualized here. At the same time, the system is future-proof and can subsequently accommodate additional systems.
