Fronius Solar to introduce new products at its 25th anniversary in 2017

Fronius Solar Energy Division 25th anniversary

The Fronius Solar Energy Division is gearing up to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2017. To mark the occasion, the solar technology supplier will expand its product portfolio; new additions in the product portfolio will include intelligent additional options in the Fronius Solar.web online portal as well as module electronics solutions.

In the coming year, Fronius will be seeking to build on its position as the global solar pioneer. In line with this approach the solar technology expert is providing its customers with an extensive range of products with many new additions. “All our innovations support our vision of 24 hours of sun; an energy future in which 100 percent of our energy needs are met by renewable energy sources,” said Martin Hackl, head of the Solar Energy Division at Fronius International GmbH.

Increasing energy efficiency with Fronius Solar.web

A highlight is the Rest API server interface for Fronius Solar.web, the online service for remote system monitoring. The Ethernet-based open interface allows the user to incorporate inverter values from the server into third-party systems. The energy optimisation feature in Solar.web is also new, whereby the customer can access a weekly overview in the online portal that calculates their consumption as an hourly rate. With the aid of this data, the user is shown a simulation that demonstrates how much energy they could save and use themselves by using a storage system, rather than obtaining it from the grid. The new weather-service function allows energy optimization to be improved even further by enabling current weather data to be used for a variety of purposes. For example, this information can be taken into account for consumption considerations. Another innovation in Solar.web is the remote inverter software update. This allows the user to remotely update the inverter software with one click and without having to physically go to the system. The new features will be made available worldwide over the course of the year.

Module electronics solutions and storage systems increase efficiency and safety

Solutions for solar module optimization also await Fronius customers in 2017: these fulfill future NEC (National Electrical Code) requirements more simply, efficiently and cost-effectively than traditional module-level power electronics says the company in a statement. Fronius’ innovative technologies also contribute to increasing energy efficiency and simplifying system planning.

Fronius also has plans to expand its range of storage systems in the coming year.
