Comparison of strings and inverters
The Solar-Log1000 monitors up to 100 inverters with a total output of up to 1 MWp. The monitoring function covers both the comparison of individual strings and the comparison of all connected inverters among each other. This allows malfunctions to be easily and securely diagnosed even for larger plants.
Graphic data preparation
Not only does the web-based software make installation easier, it also allows both tabular and clear graphic display of daily, monthly and annual yields - available at any time, anywhere in the world. Data can also be easily integrated into your personal homepage. Use Solar-Log™ WEB for optimum plant evaluation or ask your installer about the many advantages of the professional functions contained in Solar-Log™WEB.
Every 15 seconds Solar-Log™ analyzes the inverter status, the yield profile and the characteristics of supply into the power network.
The Solar-Log1000 sends out alarm messages via email or SMS as preferred. Receive to-the-minute error messages on your mobile telephone or your PC.
Your solar technician can link the Solar-Log1000 with the professional monitoring function in the Solar-Log™ WEB on request. He will then be automatically notified in the event of malfunction and can immediately commence remedying the malfunction at your plant.
Yield forecasting and degradation calculation
With the Solar-Log1000 you not only see the yield that your photovoltaic plant has already attained. The Solar-Log™ also conducts yield forecasts using the experienced data stored in the software. Deviations in the yield, for example due to blocked sunlight or damage can thus be quickly recognized and remedied.
It is not only damage which leads to a decreased output for the plant, aging modules do too. Solar-Log™ incorporates the so-called module degradation into the yield evaluation and takes into it account when analyzing errors.
With Solar-Log™ Easy installation it is now easier to install the Solar-Log™. The Solar-Log™ is doing automatically an inverter recognition on all most common inverters and the configuration of these inverters is done automatically within the Solar-Log™.
For the internet connection the Solar-Log™ is registering itself on the Solar-Log™ WEB registration server. The user can then pull the Solar-Log™ from there to his Solar-Log WEB™ Classic II account or Solar-Log™ WEB commercial edition account with the PC at his office.
Optimization of your individual power consumption
The use of self-produced power offers considerable remuneration advantages. Smart metering is the function which the Solar-Log1000 uses to measure your individual power consumption and continuously compare it with the current performance data for the photovoltaic plant. Using a simple dashboard display within the evaluation graphic the optimum time for the use of energy-intensive consumers such as washing machines and driers can be identified. The Solar-Log1000 can even control up to four consumers via intelligent control by way of network power sockets.
The Solar-Log1000 is optionally available with a Bluetooth module for wireless connection to the new inverter generation from the manufacturer SMA. This allows a cordless connection between the inverter and the Solar-Log™ - rapid and simple installation, with mounting as desired.

Solar-Log™ with WiFi
The Solar-Log 200/500/1000 is also available with WiFi option. This applies for the standard Solar-Log™ as well as for the Bluetooth version. An internet cable connection is not required. Prerequisites are only a WiFi router. WiFi Repeater might be requiriered on poor signals.

Adjustable power management
For plants with an output of more than 100kWp the power network operator requires that the output of the inverters is able to be reduced. The Solar-Log1000 PM model has a power management function that reliably brings about the reduction in output and records it exactly. Inverters on request.
The Solar-Log1000 and Solar-Log 1000 PM+ are also available with an integrated GPRS Modem. A separate Modem or Internet connection is not required anymore. A GPRS connection is especially required for open space plants or apartment houses where an internet connection is not available or accessible for the plant owner.

For plants which are not directly connected to a PC or to the internet it offers a USB connection into which a USB stick can be inserted for the purpose of data transfer. The USB stick can be used for the following tasks:
- Copying data in the homepage format
- Saving/importing back-up data
- Saving/importing configuration
- Firmware update
