Solarfox® Solar Display &
Solarshow Version 1.0
Discontinuation of Solarfox® Slideshow Version 1.0
Why is version 1.0 discontinued?
Version 1.0 of the Solarfox online management was launched in 2009. Since 2009 there have been many technical and legal changes. In 2013, we presented a completely newly developed version 2.0, which has been continuously developed and optimized in the meantime. This version has significantly more functions and an improved usability. Our current version (03.2018) offers enormous added value and meets the requirements of the current state of the art. If you have not made a change since then, you should do so immediately.
At the end of May 2018 the european general data protection regulation (GDPR) will come into force, version 1.0 of our online administration will therefore be discontinued on 15.05.2018. Therefore, switch your device to the current Solarfox online management (version 2) now.
How do you know which version you are currently using?

Solution for Solarfox displays built before 09/2011
All models purchased before September 2011 can unfortunately no longer be operated with our new or current online management(version 2). Unfortunately, the hardware is not compatible or the hardware performance of these devices is not sufficient.
Solarfox customers who have SF-200 displays and control computers built before 09/2011 have the option of upgrading their device with one of our cost-effective retrofit packages. That means a new control computer can be installed behind the monitor. In this way the new Solarfox Online Management 2.0 can be used with the existing device.
If you are interested in our retrofit package, please contact our sales department: .
