The PV Base Pack contains:
- Industrial computer (PV-Link)
- Power supply 24VDC (PV-PSU)
- Logical bus control unit (PV-BASE)
- UTP cable (10m)
The control software is running on the PV-Link computer and can be accessed using any internet browser. The software handles scheduling of measurements, storing of data in a local database, configuration of the system and connected devices. All data can be easily exported in the most common formats (TXT, ASCII, CSV, Excel, PDF, etc..). A full user management system is available to control the access levels of different users.
On the PV-Link there are 2 ethernet ports, one for a direct connection to, for example a laptop and one to connect to the company network (internet). When only the local network is used, it is impossible for intruders to access any data.
To install the base pack, the user must simply mount the 3 units on a standard T35 DIN-rail and apply AC power (100 – 240VAC) to the power supply. Note that an AC power cable is not included.
The PV-Base Pack can control a maximum of 32 PV-Blocks If more units are required, it is possible to add an additional PV Base Block. With this block 32 new PV-Blocks can be added to the system.
