FAQ

How long does the commissioning/installation of the Solarfox display take?

In about 30 minutes, The system can be set up in about 30 minutes with no prior knowledge  since the installation itself is done in a few steps and an onscreen setup wizard will guide you step by step in setting it up.

The following calculation will spare you the hassle of calculating the cost and planing the installation of a Solarfox® display. The following calculation assumes that electricity and network connection (LAN or WLAN) to the installation location already exist.

 

Operation

Time

1) drill four holes and attach the plug

approx. 10 min

2) mounting the wall mount plate

approx. 5 min

3) Mounting of the display and connection of power cable and LAN cable

approx. 5 min

4) Registration of the display under http://setup.solar-fox.de Hotel (If before installation to be made from any computer via a web form) The access data will be immediately from sent to system via email.

about 5-10 min

5) implementing the display setup and configuration of the Solarfox® displays using a USB keyboard

5 min

Sum

30-35 minutes

For a quick and smooth installation and commissioning of the Solarfox® displays we recommend installation in advance to coordinate all necessary information with the IT managers (Administrator). To do this, use our Checklist. This ensures that there is an internet connection on site and all the necessary data are available.

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

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.
