SMA America LLC has developed the Sunny Beam PV desktop system monitor, which also now features Bluetooth wireless technology.
The Sunny Beam is compact and lightweight, making it small enough to easily move from room to room, the company notes. The unit features a modern design and can be wall-mounted or placed on a tabletop. The screen features a large liquid crystal display that shows current, daily, annual and total energy production.
Upon activation, the Sunny Beam wirelessly connects with up to 12 Sunny Boy inverters, creating a fast, stable, cable-free monitoring solution. Operators access their system information through an intuitive, single-button rotary control, SMA America says. An audio alarm can be set to notify the user of key changes – such as energy output – allowing them to take corrective action quickly, thereby maximizing their system's performance and investment.
The unit receives data transmitted from a Sunny Boy inverter via a Bluetooth connection and automatically stores it for later retrieval. Users wishing to record long-term system performance information can upload data to a personal computer through a USB port.
The system monitor is powered via an integrated solar module and rechargeable battery, and includes a standard five-year warranty.
