Eaton Introduces PVGard Solar Equipment Monitoring System


Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corp. has introduced the PVGard engineered monitoring system, which is designed to help solar customers monitor and proactively manage solar plant equipment.

The Web-based monitoring system alerts customers to underperforming panels, inverters and transformers. With custom algorithms to track multiple inputs, the PVGard collects data directly from equipment and transmits data in real time, enabling customers and plant operators to respond to abnormal conditions, Eaton says.

The monitoring and display software enables customization to incorporate descriptive text, schematic diagrams and customer-specific data, the company adds.
