Our second generation monitoring devices are available with WiFi (W series)
or cellular (M series) communications in 3 or 6 channel configurations.
Add a DIN-rail mounted relay with an Auditor switching unit and circuits can be controlled in real-time through the cloud.
One of the more recent models in the Auditor series—the Auditor 6M+3SW or 6W+3SW device—features cellular or WiFi communications with up to 6 channels of monitoring and option for 3 switching circuits which energise or de-energise targeted circuits via single or 3-phase contactors. Typical controllable loads include electric hot water systems, pool pumps or even solar inverter protection.
Currently in the R&D stage, InverterCommand will allow distribution network operators to remotely control solar inverters. By seamlessly issuing commands for changing generation set-points at the inverter level, network operators and aggregators are able to better manage the impacts that rooftop solar systems have on their networks.
