Solar WiFi Kit
Solar WiFi is an external data logger in the PV monitoring series.
By connecting with single or multiple inverters through RS485/422
interface, the Kit can collect information of PV systems from inverters.
With the integrated WiFi function, the Kit can connect to router and
transmit data to the web server, realizing remote monitoring for users.
In addition, Ethernet is also available for connection to router,
enabling transmission of data.
Users can check the runtime status of the device by checking the 4
LEDs on the panel, indicating Power, 485/422, Link and Status
respectively.
