Can I play TV programs, movie or music files on the display?
The Solarfox monitors have no integrated TV function. However, an external TV tuner and speakers can be connected. With the help of the remote control you can then switch between the TV program and Solarfox content. Also, this change can be done automatically on individual models via the screen timer. Depending on the model, the screens have one or more HDMI ports.
Solarfox displays can also play video files (MP4 - H.264), provided it is a model> = BJ 2017 (Solarfox SC-2000) You can include video files in the Solarfox slideshow as a video sequence. The monitors also have a USB input. In this way it is possible to play video files directly from a USB stick.
The SF-300 and SF-400 series usually have no speakers or are not prepared for playing sound. If you want an audio output on these models, this can be rebuilt or upgraded. If you have any questions about the realization of video and audio material on a Solarfox display, please contact our sales department at email@example.com

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.
