The commercial gateway is an all-in-one communication gateway, expanding the SolarEdge system’s monitoring and control capabilities. It connects to SolarEdge inverters, environmental sensors, and meters, and transfers monitoring data to the SolarEdge monitoring platform and optionally, to a third-party data logger.
The commercial gateway also has a power reduction interface that can control the SolarEdge inverters’ power.
Environmental sensors are used to monitor a site’s irradiance, temperature, and wind velocity, and to calculate site performance ratio (PR). The sensors connect to the commercial gateway and the measurements are displayed in the monitoring platform. Up to three sensors can be connected to a single commercial gateway.
Additional sensors can be installed using multiple gateways.
