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-400 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

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.
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.
