PowerLine Package

Alternative to Network Cables

The PowerLine Package is a problem-free alternative for transmitting data between the Solar-Log™ and the PC or the router without having to run extra cable when WiFi reception is poor or an Ethernet connection is problematic. An integrated power socket on the front panel prevents the power connection from being lost. The high bandwidth is achieved partially due to range+ Technology, which uses all three electric circuits for data transfers.

WiFi Kits

Wireless Internet

Wireless Kit TP-Link

The WiFi Kit allows the Solar-Log™ to connect to the Internet via an existing WiFi infrastructure. Its flexible use makes an optimum placement possible, independent of the location of the Solar-Log™. The Kit provides speeds up to 750 MBit/s and communications with the new WLAN AC standard.

Wireless Kit Netgear

The universal WiFi range extender from NETGEAR® improves the coverage of every WiFi router. The NETGEAR® wireless kit is distinguished by its dynamic LED display that helps locate the best position for optimal WiFi coverage. Thanks to its integrated socket, the wall power socket can continue to be used as usual.

Special PiggyBack (RS485)

Communication Between SMA Inverter and Solar-Log™

The special PiggyBack (RS485) is an inexpensive alternative to the standard SMA PiggyBack (RS485). It can only be used with the Solar-Log™ and requires 4-pin wiring. The device is supplied with power from the Solar-Log™ unit and therefore needs to have the proper connecting cable with a sufficient wire diameter and length. It is suitable for use with all SMA inverters, unless a data module, Quick module or Speedwire* is being used. Please refer to the inverter manufacturer’s manual for additional information. The interface card is to be installed by qualified personnel only. Important Notice: Solare Datensysteme GmbH is not liable for damage arising from connecting the PiggyBack to the inverter.

*In many countries, the designation ""Speedwire"" is a registered trademark of SMA Solar Technology AG.
