Communication software SOLPLUS+
SOLPLUS+ is the communication program for evaluating, receiving and transmitting data output by the SOLPLUS family of solar inverters. Its user-friendly GUI lets you monitor all kinds of PV installation quickly and easily. Not only the entire contents of the yield memory but those of the data logger, too, can be displayed graphically. SOLPLUS+ also allows you to configure all relevant inverter settings in the same way as you can via the display. SOLPLUS+ can be adapted to the requirements of the various types of user group. And it goes without saying that SOLPLUS+ integrates all the special functions Solutronic inverters have to offer. Evaluation of a sensor integrated into the system can be displayed graphically, as too can ownenergy consumption as recorded by the S0 meter connected. The program can be used to retrieve data from installations that are connected directly by means of a PC (serial connection with USB adapter), a RS485 data network, modem (analogue or GSM) or Ethernet (TCP/IP). Solutronic recommends remote retrieval of inverter data via TCP/IP. Thanks to the Ethernet port built into all our inverters as a standard feature, all that‘s necessary to read out all the data of an unlimited number of inverters, as often as you want and cheaply, is access to the World Wide Web.
Depending on what the end customer wants to use the software for, Solutronic offers three different versions of SOLPLUS+.
1. SOLPLUS+: The basic functions
The free version of SOLPLUS+ offers end customers a quick overview of their installation. You configure your PV installation on the administration page just the once after installing the program, and all information stored and data retrieved are saved ready for access whenever you want. You initiate reading-out of you system‘s data when and how you want.
2. SOLPLUS+ Comfort
SOLPLUS+ Standard can also be upgraded by purchasing the SOLPLUS+ Comfort package. SOLPLUS+ Comfort allows you to manage any number of installations with Solutronic inverters. SOLPLUS+ Comfort also incorporates a server function in order to make management of several installations as simple as possible. This then automatically reads out and saves the data of selected installations at times stipulated by the customer. Prerequisite for this function is that the PC remains switched on and the program is started in the background. Solutronic recommends that customers set the frequency with which they retrieve such data in line with the cost structure of the connections between the installations.
3. SOLPLUS+ Professional
SOLPLUS+ Professional is our software version for trained dealers and fitters, in which not only the monitoring of installations and all SOLPLUS+ Comfort functions are enabled but additional service and monitoring tools, too.
