Monitoring Solutions 

The String Box monitors the currents in photovoltaic modules and can promptly diagnose faults. The device is made of UV-resistant polyester resin and offers IP65 degree of protection. It has a general circuit breaker, type ABB T1D 160PV, to disconnect the


field from the inverter and up to 16 strings (with a maximum input current per string of 9A) can be connected. Since it is compatible with the SunVision monitoring software, signals and alarms aresent in the event of current faults according to the thresholds set at configuration.


solutions include an RS485 and RS232 ports (supplied as standard), an optional slot for a NetMan Plus PV Ethernet card and analog inputs for the connection of environmental


(temperature, radiation and wind).
