APsystems Energy Communication Unit
The APsystems state-of-the-art Energy Communication Unit (ECU), is the information gateway for our microinverters. The unit collects module performance data from each individual microinverter and transfers this information to an internet database in real time, requiring only a single data and power cable. Through the APsystems EMA, the ECU gives you precise analysis of each microinverter and module in your solar installation from any web-connected device. The ECU integrated http webserver offers the simplest and most flexible network integration of any data logger on the market. The user-friendly browser-based interface lets you access your solar array in seconds.
