How is the display updated after configuration changes?
Saved changes to the Solarfox slideshow configuration will not be shown on the solar display until the "Refresh icon" (circular arrows) in the top menu line is clicked. The Solarfox control computer then checks for any changes within the next approx. 5 minutes and then accepts them for display on the solar display. IMPORTANT: It is mandatory to press the "Save" button before reloading!
Before doing so, you have the option to review changes made in a presentation preview in your online administration. Simply click on the "Playback symbol" in the upper menu line. The slideshow will now be started and displayed directly in your browser.

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.
