Synapse Wireless and Shoals Technologies Group Demonstrate the Industry’s First Real-Time, Wireless String-Level Solar PV Monitoring Solution

Synapse Wireless, an emerging leader in wireless solutions that empower the Internet of Things (IoT), and Shoals Technologies Group, the leading manufacturer of photovoltaic (PV) Balance of Systems (BoS) components, today unveiled their SNAPshot Wireless Solar PV Monitoring Solution at InterSolar North America.

The SNAPshot Wireless Monitoring Solution – Real-Time, String-Level Monitoring

The innovative SNAPshot Wireless PV Monitoring system provides a cost-effective, efficient way to optimize plant performance and O&M costs.

“We’re excited to share the newest addition to our family of solar solutions, which also includes our recently announced SolarSNAP Installation Tool, and our Smart Combiner Box with Arc Fault detection. SNAPshot underscores our commitment to providing meaningful innovation to the solar industry,” said Dean Solon, President & CEO, Shoals Technologies Group.

With the ability to monitor output down to the string level, this cloud-based solution delivers a host of advantages, including: superior analytics, decision support tools, real-time system alerts, and integrated work order management. SNAPshot’s intuitive user interface is optimized for mobile devices as well as PCs for anytime, anywhere insight into solar plant efficiency and output.

Phoenix Solar, a global leader in designing, building and operating large commercial and utility-scale solar power plants, is working with Synapse and Shoals to implement the SNAPshot solution. Nick de Vries, VP Plan Operations and Engineering for Phoenix Solar, commented, “With access to cost-effective string-level information, this technology has major implications for improving efficiency and ultimately, return on investment. We’re looking forward to working with Shoals and Synapse to push the boundaries of solar innovation.”

SNAPshot Demonstration at InterSolar North America Conference

“InterSolar North America is the ideal venue to demonstrate the capabilities of our new SNAPshot solution, which gives a solar field owner or operator the ability to easily keep tabs on production from the smartphone in his or her pocket. Our demo is powered by live data — we hope everyone attending will have a chance to check it out and see just how revolutionary this product is,” said Key Foster, CEO, Synapse Wireless.

Synapse Wireless and Shoals Technologies Group will be exhibiting at Booth 9611 at the InterSolar North America Conference, July 8-10 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
