Locus Energy launches LGate 360 solar monitoring system
By Alyssa Dalton
July 8, 2014 – Locus Energy, a solar monitoring services and data analytics platform provider, has launched the LGate 360, a control panel designed specifically for plug-and-play performance data acquisition for commercial and utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) installations.
The standard configuration combines a revenue-grade power meter and Modbus-enabled data logger pre-wired in an outdoor-rated enclosure. Designed to simplify the process of gathering, organizing and visualizing solar performance data, the LGate 360 boasts a design that eliminates commissioning delays caused by extensive on-site configuration and the need for external power supplies for peripheral sensors, which it says decreases the number of man-hours spent in the field.
