REFU Elektronik Reports Update to its REFUdesign Planning Software and REFUlog Monitoring Portal
Pfullingen – After its recent announcement that REFUsol inverters have now been added to REFU Elektronik GmbH's brand portfolio, the company has now reported the release of updates for two of its software solutions, which support users when planning and operating their PV systems. The REFUdesign planning software makes planning systems an easy task, and the REFUlog monitoring portal is ideal for monitoring system data. Both tools can be used online with the same user logon data.
In the planning phase, users can create the optimum layout for their PV system online with REFUdesign, while accessing an extensive modules database. The module interconnections with the inverters are generated automatically when they create the layout. The tool is available for general use, free of charge, at www.refudesign.de. After registering, the user can also call additional functions: they can personalise the planning result by adding their own logo, save their projects as templates, and add their own module data, which is not available in the database.
REFUsol includes another tool for use during the PV system's operating phase – the REFUlog monitoring portal. The operating data is recorded by a data logger which is integrated in the inverter, and then transferred to a web-based database. Using the Internet-based REFUlog tool, the system operator can monitor and analyse this data and ensure they always have a clear overview of the system's returns and profitability. The operator can also use REFUlog to update the firmware in the inverters. This tool can also be used free of charge after registering at www.refu-log.de.
The company will also be presenting the two portals at Intersolar 2016 in Munich, Germany. Visitors to REFUsol's stand in Hall B.2, stand 160, will also be able to try out the new REFUlog app for smartphones with iOS or Android operating systems.
